2016 Career Day
Before Career Day I wanted to be a doctor. The reason I wanted to be a doctor is because I like the fact that when you're a doctor and a patient comes into the room to get checked out that they count on me to help them with their problems and that they can trust me on a daily basis. I also like the idea of becoming a doctor because some of my family works at hospitals as doctors and I would like to follow in their footsteps. For career day I didn’t expect things to be so expensive like child care, Medical and Dental and other everyday life expectations. I thought that for money you only needed enough for food, clothes, insurance, a house and a car. I never even thought about how much money you needed extra for utilities, child care, medical/dental and entertainment for your family.
After Career Day ended I had a more outcome look on society, such as all the money and responsibility that goes into living. I never pictured that child care, medical/dental, insurance, house, and utilities would cost as much as they did when you add all of them together. At the end of career day I have learned to appreciate more in my life than getting mad if I didn't get what I wanted because now I know what my parents go through just to make us happy with little money they have.
At the end of the day when I was listening to the speakers I found that Interviewing skills was the most interesting because the speaker talked about that in job interviews you have to make eye contact and actually listen to what the other person has to say. I also found interesting that instead of the speaker just going on and on about Interviewing skills, she actually taught us how we could act around other people in an interview by shaking our hands and making eye contact with us when we talked to her or she talked to us. For career day I have learned to be more appreciative in life and not ask for stuff from my parents.
