Before career day I wanted to open my own at home daycare or get into cosmetology, it’s something i’ve always been interested in. I know this would be the perfect job for me because i have a lot of experience with children and I like to work with hair and do creative things with it. When I looked into how money works with these two jobs I seen it would cost a lot of money to start an at home daycare because I would have to find a big house and have a lot of food and activities and I would have to watch over the children to make sure they don’t get injured and make sure I have everything they might need. Also after looking into cosmetology I see that I wouldn’t make good money if I had a family to support as well so I would have to look into getting a second job and see how my hours would work with my first job.
On the first part of the day which was Reality Store I found out why my family easily struggles with needs as far as food and jobs. I learned that when you have a big family you’ll need more support than just yourself and that it’s hard to live. I appreciate my grandparents more because I see that it’s hard when only one of them are working and I see why I should have to work for my money a lot harder because money is very variable and life is expensive.
My afternoon speaker was in therapy. No I did not find this interesting because
I couldn’t understand it. I think the most interesting speaker I had on career day was the Military base. I liked learning about the military because when I was younger I used to think I wanted to join the military and i had some family that went. I experienced that any job you get you have to put your all into it and try your hardest throughout life to reach your goals and school happens to play a big part in our futures.
I enjoyed career day and I enjoyed getting the chance to experience and look into bigger parts of our future and I hope one day we get to experience this again.
