Top 10 Lists

Today's Snack: Have 10 of something healthy - ten baby carrots with ranch dip? Ten celery strips? Ten ham cubes? Ten cheese cubes? Whatever you have, wash it down with 10 ounces of cold milk.

Supplies:

File folder | print out these lists | scrap paper

 

It is a great idea to start a "career folder" when you start exploring what you'd like to do when you grow up. Take an ordinary manila folder and start collecting articles, lists, news clippings, website addresses - anything that might help you browse through the wide world of career information, and begin to form a direction for yourself.

 

Here are some random lists that you can study and put in your folder. They cover some very important factors when it comes to career selection - how much the people who are already doing that job like it, how much money they make, and how easy it might be to find a job in that field because of demand.

 

These lists are compiled from 2006 data reported to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor.
