Transcript of CIT 101

Corner of Hagood and Huger
On the way to Citadel Stadium 573 Huger Street Where Are We? Who Are We? Where Are We? Response Is Required What is your target career?

Prompt: Write a paragraph response to the following:
(a.) Identify your target career and tell why it interests you,
(b.) Name an alternative career you are considering, &
(c.) Compare and/or contrast these careers.

For part (c) above, use the following resources to research similarities and differences between careers:
• Career Center/SIGI
• Occupational Outlook Handbook (www.bls.gov/ooh)
• O*NET OnLine (www.onetonline.org): Information such as sample job titles, daily tasks, knowledge, skills, and abilities
• Careers in the Military (www.careersinthemilitary.com)

Note: Remember to use and cite 2 or more resources. Example of an appropriate citation: According to the "Occupational Outlook Handbook," the law enforcement officer occupation is expected to experience slower than average growth over the next ten years.

My target career is to be a pilot in the United States Air Force. Since I was in high school, I wanted to serve in the military. Aircraft and aviation is an area of interest that fascinates me and made me aspire to be in the Air Force. Being a pilot, in my opinion, would be the greatest job in the world because it seems like a very fun and rewarding job. If I am unable to become a pilot, my alternative career would be an Aircraft Maintenance Officer in the United States Air Force. Due to my love of aircraft, if there is a reason why I cannot fly them, I would love to be in charge of fixing them. I am on a three year scholarship from the Air Force to attend The Citadel, so if everything goes as planned, I will graduate with a commission as a Second Lieutenant.

"Taking control of one of the most advanced aircraft in the world - and pushing its performance to the limit - requires extraordinary skill and precision, and Air Force pilots make it look easy." (http://www.airforce.com/careers/detail/pilot/) Being a pilot seems like one of the most professional and prestigious careers. A benefit of being a pilot is that you get to travel the world for a living. "Air Force pilots deploy around the world to wherever there's a need as fighters, trainers, bombers, advisers and more." (http://www.airforce.com/careers/detail/pilot/) On the other hand, Aircraft Maintenance Officers are in charge of protecting the personnel and property of the Air Force. "With thousands of aircraft in the sky every day, precision aircraft maintenance plays a crucial role in protecting the safty of our Airmen and the integrity of their missions." (http://www.airforce.com/careers/detail/aircraft-maintenance-officer/) Although it is on the other side of the spectrum from flying, it is still a career in the Air Force. The mission of both officers is the same; to provide service to the greatest military in the world. Being in either one of these career fields would be a dream come true for me.
