Career Exploration

Aim: By the end of today’s class, you will be able to name four careers you are interested in and be able to explain their average salary and what education or training is necessary for you to take part in that career path.

Directions:

  1. Identify 4 careers you are interested in

    1. From your brain

    2. From your career packet (if you have one)

    3. A mix of both

  2. Google search: “___________________ average salary” (inserting career into the blank)

    1. Log the salary in the correct career box

  3. Google search: “education needed for __________________” (inserting career into the blank)

    1. Log the education in the correct career box

    2. This will be things such as, types of college degrees, years of training, etc

  4. Answer the questions below the career boxes.



Types of College Degrees

Bachelor’s Degree

Master’s Degree

Doctorate/PHD

  • 4-5 years

  • Most students are in school full time

  • Specialized degree (ex: history, advertising, biology, film studies)

  • ~120 credit hours or 40 courses (classes) to graduate

  • 2-3 years

  • Most students are working full time and going to school in the evening or weekends

  • Usually you are studying more of what your bachelor’s degree is in, or something related to it (ex: US history, microbiology, elementary reading education)

  • ~30 credit hours or 12-18 courses to graduate

  • 5-7 years

  • Most students are working a job while they are working on their doctorate degree

  • Instead of studying (like a bachelors and masters), you are doing research and creating knowledge

  • One large project at the end of your research
