					  Career Investigation Project
Students should investigate various career opportunities, evaluate the
information and obtain hands-on job experiences in order to make wise career
decisions. The youth of today are expected to change career fields between 7
and 10 times during their working life. While an individual cannot prepare for all
careers at the same time, it is smart to start learning with one career field that
interests them. Your task is to investigate a career
that interests you and share what you have learned
with your peers through a computer generated
Power–Point presentation. You will need to use a
minimum of three resources to investigate your
chosen area and include all of the required
information in the presentation, which will be
presented in class the week of _________________.

            The project will be scored based on the following required areas:
