I am a technology teacher who is starting a careers project with my middle schoolers next month.
They are going to be researching jobs and careers they are interested in, but I'm trying to get them to think beyond the typical positions and jobs that they see most often in their community. I have heard of having students research all the possible jobs in one area, such as a hospital, but I'm not sure what all jobs are in a hospital.
I'm trying to find some suggestions for different jobs that are specific, such as neonatal care nurse. I am also trying to find descriptions. For example, this link
talks about post-secondary teachers who work in hospitals. ? I've never heard of this, maybe in pediatric hospitals? So, I want the jobs to be something my students can look up information about on the internet. I've found several websites that have categories of jobs, such as call centers, but I'm not sure what you would call that type of job, call center __________ attendant, assistant, ?
If this isn't too much of a question, I'm also looking for a different avenue to pursue with my other two classes. I'm going to have one class all look at jobs for hospitals, but I'm trying to think of an equivalent suggestion for my other two classes, maybe have students all look at a specific high-rise building and the jobs in all the offices in there? We are located in St. Louis, so something that is related to one or two of our downtown buildings might be fun, but I'm open to suggestions.
