This Student Guide is a sample of different career opportunities in our area that will be featured at the expo. By no means is it all the jobs or careers available!

We are going to play Personal BINGO. I will give you no more than 5 minutes to fill in as much as you can on your BINGO card. When I say "GO" - stand up and walk around the room getting people to sign your card under the appropriate boxes. We will play until someone shouts "BINGO" (entire card filled!) or I say "STOP."

Career Discovery 2018
Explore your future
Some information will be things you are familiar with. Other information will turn into gold nuggets because it is interesting to YOU!
And, just like a chocolate sampler, some you will really like...others, not so much! Our job now is to find out what interests you.
free space = Your Name
limited number of times a person can sign!
The Student Guide book is for all 8th graders in the region. But it was written just for you!
Some will be plain rocks.
Some will be gold nuggets!
In what cluster would you:
When we go through the Pop-up questions, we can see everyone has different preferences.
Let's connect the questions into something...
...into a career cluster!
In what cluster would you:
Work with animals?
Work with computers?
Teach people new things?
Expect to travel?
Cook or bake?
Look under a microscope?
Expect to meet lots of new people?
Use math skills?
Explore the Guide
Answer these questions independently:
1. What career cluster looks the most interesting to you?
2. What career (from this cluster) has a job title you have never heard of before?
3. Do you know anyone who does any of the jobs listed in the careers section? If yes, which one(s)?
4. If you worked in this cluster, where is a place you could expect to work?
Divide into 11 groups. Each group is assigned a career cluster to quickly research and report to the class on.
What does it take to be successful in this cluster?
What are some of the activities, interests or skills that people in this cluster have?
What are three jobs from this cluster?
Where are some places you could expect to work in this cluster?
You are the teacher
Take out a pen or pencil.
You don't need your Student Guide book for this activity.
Enjoy your trip to Career Discovery 2018!
Student Work Sheet
Points to Ponder:
Just because you don't like spinach today, does not mean you will never like spinach!
If you can't do a back handspring today, can you learn to do one if you wanted to?
What we choose for a career should highlight our own personality.
If the question asked applies to you, stand up. You have three seconds to stand. Then sit down.
Knowing what our interests and strengths are, is the beginning to discovering what career choices may be good for us down the road.
You will need this information at the expo.
