Transcript of My Dream Job

Expectaions Skills Needed At DECHS Equipment Used Back-Up Career
-I haven't really decided what my back-up choice will be, but I am wanting to also go into being an interpreter/ Translator. This job also pays a good amount and since I am fluent in both english and spanish I believe it would be benificial. -In Psychiatry one has to be able to deal with problems of others without affecting them personally. Also they have to be proffesional and learn to communicate in an appropriate way. I believe the most important expectation is to be mentally stable and prepared. My Perfect Match?
-The quiz that Mrs. Wilson gave us did match up with my
career choice. In my mind a small part of me did want to go into Psychology but wasn't sure. In the quiz it came up of one of my choices and it does match because I do like to help people and I also like learning about certain behaviors of the human mind. Degree Required Before leaving DECHS it would be best to recieve my associates degree both in Art and Science. Psychiatry requires both academic knowledge in Arts an Science, since it deals with communication and structure of the mind. Salary Anyone with my career choice...
-Mrs. Wilson is one of the reasons that I was also inspired to help others because she does make changes in peoples lives and seems happy in this field. It would be nice to know that in the future I too could make a difference in someone's life. High Demand For Psychiatry
