MV d2D – Career Exercises

The goal of this week’s diplomas2Degrees (d2D) was to recognize career groupings and the type of work associated with them as well as identifying individual interests, work values and the levels of education needed for specific jobs.

Teen members had to discover what type of career cluster they fit into best depending on their strengths. Once they identified the clusters and the most important work value in that cluster, they had to give examples of careers in that cluster. Teen members would then share what they would like to do as a career and then add those careers to the clusters.

For the second part of the lesson, teen members had to guess what the minimum educational attainment should be for their career. They then had to guess the average yearly salary depending on the educational attainment. Finally, they had to look up what the actual average salary of their dream career is today.
