In Career Skills class, we mainly focus on planning out our futures by researching jobs you are interested in and seeing if it will help you obtain the lifestyle you desire. For this class, I had to list 3 careers that I was interested in. The first career was the career I was mainly going for, while the other two were meant to be backup careers. After I had the list of my desired careers, I then had to research how much money each career made. The next assignment was to plan out what I wanted to have in the future (what house, food, pets, furniture, form of transportation, ect.) and how much I went to spend on each of them. The next step required me to see if the careers I chose would help pay for the lifestyle I wanted. Next, I had to research what college would help me prepare for the career I wanted to have by seeing how far it was, how much it costs, and what classes I would need to take. Finally, I had to make a slideshow showing all aspects of My 10 Year Plan and present it in front of my peers. In this class, I have learned how to improve different skills. The first skill I have improved on because of this class is my critical thinking skills because My 10 Year Plan constantly had be thinking critically of what I wanted to do in the future and how I am going to do it. Another skill that I have improved on in this class is my reaserch skills because a huge part of My 10 Year Plan mainly involved researching different aspects of my desired lifestyle. The final skill I have improved on is my time management skills because this project was the longest project we had in freshman year and required me to use my time wisely if I wanted to finish it on time.
