This is today's assignment:

1. Start a new document. 

2. Put your name at the top.

3. Type in these 6 headings and rate yourself from 0 to 20 on each heading:

  a. Realistic (work with objects & practical)

  b. Investigative (learn & solve problems)

  c. Artistic (imagination & creativity)

  d. social (outgoing & work in groups)

  e. enterprising (assertive & lead people)

  f. conventional (well-orgainzed & follow a plan)

4. Take the interest survey found at this LINK

5.  Take a screenshot of the bar chart with your 6 scores (the first bar is "R" for realistic, etc.).

6.  Write down the two categories that were the biggest difference (EX:  you rated yourself as 17 for social and the survey results had you at 5 for social = a difference of 17-5=12).

7.  For both categories from #6 you need to write who is correct and why (EX:  SOCIAL:  I believe my evaluation of 17 is correct rather than the computer's score of 5 because I talke a lot and group chat constantly and like to do group work).

8.  Write down which of the following 4 categories is most important for you when thinking about a job:

  MATCH (job matches your interests)

  OUTLOOK (job has lots of opportunities to get hired)

  HRLY WAGE (job pays well)

  EDUCATION (job requires lots of education/experience)

9.  At the top of the job list next to the chart click on your choice from #8 so the occupation list is sorted according to your criteria.

10.  Now that the list of occupations is sorted type into your document the top 5 occupations on the list.

11.  E-mail the document to me TYAHR@bcbe.org
