When thinking about Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics it makes me think of how important this career cluster is to our economy. In what way do you think the cluster contributes to/effects our nation's economy? Please describe your two careers in this cluster first. How do you think each of your two careers in this cluster contribute to/effect our nation's economy? How does this cluster contribute to/effect the other clusters you have completed research in?

i think they help when we buy things online when we talk to other people. it affects how things travel and how we travel as well. my career is  a traffic technician. they conduct field studies determine traffic volume speed effectiveness or signals and adequacy of lighting other factors influencing traffic conditions under direction of traffic.  I think this effects the economy because it effects how we travel. we travel for everything. we travel for work, school, to visit family, for vactation, to get food, and any more.

Recently I have been asking my students to make connections between their personal lives/chosen careers and those careers they choose to research in class. I ask them to to think about how semi-random research can be tied to meaning for them, personally. This week, among other things, we have researched two careers in the Government and Public Administration cluster. I would like to know why students chose to research the careers they did and how they "connect" to their own chosen career.

I chose two careers from Government and Public Administration they were a coroner and tax prepares. i chose tax prepares more on a personal than related to my chosen career. My grandmother does this kind of things at her job. she works very hard and works a lot of long hour on taxes. It also has some similarities to my chosen career like you need to be organized also you need stress tolerance. My other career is a coroner I chose this job mostly because I think it would me interesting. the main similarity to my chosen career and a coroner is that they both need to know psychology.

how it affects us

One of my careers was Mobile Heavy Equipment Mechanic, it affects my life because that is what my father does for his job. Also it affects the town I live in because they work on the big machinery that helps work at  one of the factories in town. It affects our nation because they keep big machinery running. The other career that I chose was a forester. Foresters manage public and private forested land for economic, recreational, and conservation purposes. This affects my life also because of where I live. On the weekends I live in the middle of know where and my backyard consists of 40 acres of woods. I live with my grandmother in town during the school week. It affects our nation because they help with conservation of forests.

Students have just finished researching the Architecture and Construction career cluster. I'm curious to know how the two careers they looked at are similar and how they are different. I'm also interested to know if either of those two careers relate in any way to their chosen career. It should be interesting to read their posts!

i have finished my two careers in architecture and construction. both careers interest are artistic and enterprising. they need to know design, customer and personal service,and building and construction. the projected growth is 8 to 14 percent. Both careers do not relate to my chosen career.

 After comparing the two careers, decide and write about what those similarities mean to you. Could you work in Human Services? Does it confirm your chosen career and academy or does it make you want to change it?

My chosen career is a psychologist, I am comparing it to a mental health counselor. They are alike in many ways. They both assist clients improve their everyday lives. skills they have are psychology, customer and personal service, therapy and counseling, and English language. their interest are artistic,social, and investigative. The similarities mean to me that they are closely related.My chosen career fits into human services so i would be able to work in that job cluster. It does confirm my chosen career and academy. I don't want to change it. I don't think anything will make me change what career i want to peruse.

It is important so you can better understand your coworkers. Also to not fight with them because you know that is just how they  are. It would help to see who you should work around. It is important to know your own personality so you know the way you react to things is normal for you. To know what jobs you will be good at.
