HANDOUT A: REFLECTION
o What are some of your interests? Briefly explain why you enjoy each one.
- Drag Racing
I enjoy Drag racing because of the adrenaline that you get while racing, the extreme competitiveness and being able to spend the time with my family during the summer.
I enjoy playing basketball because it gives me something to do during the winter while we are in the off-season for drag racing. It also gives me time to myself and being able to just go to the gym and shoot around for a while.
In my family we travel very often mostly to drag races all across the northern united states and sometimes do go to certain events in the southern part of the united states.
o What are some careers you are considering? How do they relate to your interests?
Teaching is a very acceptable job and it works with my hobbies extremely well. As a teacher you have the summers off and I could be able to coach basketball during the winter for the school.
My dad is a machinist and as a kid I always wanted to try the machines he works on but was very interested in the automatic side of the machines that my dad uses.
- Real Estate
Real Estate is a very well paying job and is a very acceptable job title.

These occupations usually provide an environment where things are well organized and roles and tasks are clearly defined.

I might enjoy this career because I talk to people very frequently and helping them with what they need.
- Family Physician
A family physician would fit my hobbies and I would enjoy helping people when they need help.
I don’t think I would like being a pediatrician because I would usually help very young and would much rather help older people.
