1 Working as a Health Science Technology Professional Student Edition As a student enrolled in a health science technology class you should know the job opportunities available to you! This activity will give you idea of how many health science technology jobs are out there for you! Don t ask what the world needs. Ask what make you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. ~ Howard Thurman Explore It I Let s start your career search with what you are good at and what you like to do! 1. List 8 things that you are good at and what you like to do. 2. Think about what you want out of a career. You will be working in a career field for a long time, what do you want out of a career? List 12 aspects of a career that you would like below, if you can t think of 12 that is okay, but try your best to fill in all 12 lines.

2 3. Now we are going to create a Decision Matrix. A Decision Matrix is a table with columns and rows that will help you make a decision on what career is going to be the best fit for you. The columns will have the aspects of a career that you listed above as the column heading. The rows will be career titles that you will chose to research. There is a blank Decision Matrix below that you will need to fill in. 4. Take the aspects of a career that you would like and need (in Question 2) and put them in the column headings of the empty decision matrix below. One of the column headings is already filled in as an example. 5. Now each of the column headings needs a point value. This point value is how important a certain aspect is to you. For example, if Salary is a very important aspect in a career for me, then it is going to have a high point value such as 100. Now if there are other aspects of a career that are not as important to me as salary they will have a point value less than 100. You can come up with your own point scale, and make sure it matches how important each aspect of a career is important to you.

3 Salary ( pts) Raw Total % Score RANK Health Science Technology Jobs Discuss It I 1. Which of the aspects of career that you want or need is the most important to you? Why is it so important to you? 2. Which of the aspects of a career that you want or need is the least important to you? Why is it not very important for you? 3. How will the aspects you want out of a career change as you grow up? a. What will they be when you graduate high school? b. What will they be like if you have a family? Explore It II

4 Now that you have filled in the column headings of the decision matrix, it is time to research some health science technology careers. 1. First, find a list of health science technology careers, use the buzz words your teacher provides to help with your search. 2. Once you have found a list of health science technology careers, figure out which careers interest you, and write them down in the row headings of your decision matrix. The title of the career should be the heading of each row. 3. When choosing your careers to research, make sure you choose 3 careers that are out of your comfort zone! It is always good to explore options that you would usually never think of! 4. Now that you have chosen your 12 health science technology careers, do some further research in order to give each career point values in each of the columns. For example, in order to find how much you will make in a certain career you will need to do research. a. If you decided that salary is very important to you and you gave it a 100 point value, then you need to decide how the salary of each career (in the rows) meets what you want. For example, if you want a career that makes at least $40,000 a year, then a career that makes $40,000 or more a year will get the full 100 points. Now, if a career makes $20,000 a year that career may get a point value of 50 points because it doesn t meet you $40,000 a year salary that you want out of a career. b. Use the Occupational Outlook Handbook (an online resource) and other resources to help you decide point values for each career. 5. Finish your decision matrix by adding up all the point values in each column for a single career. For example, in a row called Health science technology Career #1 it gets the point values: 10, 40, 75, 20, 5, 20, 45, 60, 90, and 100, then in the Raw Score column Health science technology Career #1 would get a score of 465. Do this for all of the career titles in the row headings. Finally, based on the raw score, rank the careers from 1-10 (#1 being the career with the highest scores, and 10 being the career with the lowest scores). Discuss It II Now that your Decision Matrix is complete, answer the discussion questions below. 1. Why do you think the top 3 careers ranked higher than the other careers?

5 2. Based on your decision matrix, what would be your top 3 choices for a health science technology career? (They do NOT need to be the top 3 ranked careers!) Label them in the matrix! 3. Out of your top 3 choices (in question 2), what would be your absolute favorite career to do? Why? 4. Do you think the health science technology field will always have careers available for the career that you chose? Why? 5. How will the career path you have chosen work for the lifestyle you wish to have later in life? (Will you make enough money? Do you have to move? Are you going to have a family? Etc.) 6. What will be some of the challenges you will have to overcome when you are working in this career field? How you overcome these challenges? 7. What do you need to accomplish in order to become a professional in this career? 8. List 3 interesting facts about the career path you have chosen.

6 Apply It Now that you have completed research, and you have chosen a career that you would like to do for the rest of your life (hopefully!) it is time to picture yourself doing that career! 1. You are going to create a poster of yourself as a professional in the health science technology career that you have chosen as your favorite in the discussion questions above. This poster is going to be of you doing your career, but the setting of the poster is going to be 10 years down the road from now. 2. Create a new Microsoft Word Document, and name it: Yourlastname_yourfirstname_CareerExplorationPoster 3. Give your poster a creative title; this can be done after you add all the other steps if you can t think of a title now. 4. The poster needs to have a picture of yourself (at least your face) doing a part of the career that you have chosen. (Example: If you chose a geneticist, you could get a picture of someone in a lab setting working with laboratory tools and paste a picture of your face on top of their face.) 5. Then you need to write a biography of yourself doing that career and how you got there. Some information to include in your biography is listed below. Add as much information as you want though; don t feel limited to the list below! a. How much education you had to complete (Associates, Bachelors, Masters Degree, or a certification) b. Where did you get your further education c. How much money do you make d. What are you doing in the picture (Be Specific!) e. What are some other tasks you do for your career f. Do you own a home or car, etc. g. Do you rent your home or car, etc. h. Do you have a family i. How do you use your salary 6. You also need to write a small paragraph about three of the important aspects of a career that you chose as your column headings in your Decision Matrix. a. If you chose salary as an important aspect of a career then explain why it is important. Also explain why you gave salary the point value you did. This needs to explain why salary is important to you or not. b. This explanation needs to occur for three of the important aspects of a career in the column headings of your Decision Matrix.

7 7. Make sure your poster is REALISTIC! You can look at the sample poster the teacher has as an example of what your poster should look like. Be CREATIVE and have FUN! 8. Make sure you save the poster the way your teacher says to! Expand It 1. Find someone in the field and interview them! Think up some questions you would ask a professional in the field and write them below. 2. Research into a college or university that has a program that would provide you with the degree you would need in order to enter the health science technology field you have chosen. (Certification programs can also be researched is a college degree is not necessary 3. Create a timeline of events that show steps you would need to follow in order to enter the field you have chosen. 4. Create a budget based on your yearly earnings. Think about how much you will earn, and the expenses you will have. (Going to take that trip to Hawaii in December?)
