Simpson 1 Career Exploration Paper University 1301 Intro to Studies Sam Houston State University Elijah Simpson
Simpson 1 During my time here at Sam Houston State University, I am here exploring my degree and looking for a career to stick by for the rest of my life. When in high school I used to fantasize about being an athletic trainer because you can teach young teenagers how to practice healthy and be a person for them to fall back on. Athletic trainers are somebody who takes care of injured or uninjured athletes; they give many exercises and stretches to prevent injury from turning worse than it was before. With this type of career, there are many things to look at such as the skill sets, the outlook of the job, salary ranges, education, and the goals. As I was researching this career, I had plenty of thoughts going through my mind such as, what will it take to be qualified for this job and what’s the route that I would have to take once I’m in college. While looking online, I went to ONet online and searched for my career, many things have popped up in the category of my chosen career. About the website, there was a lot of information that was provided for me in this paper. While looking at the details about it, the first thing that I went to is the education section to see what it would take. So, it turns out that I would either need a Master’s degree or a Bachelor’s degree, at this point I strive for the best so in this case, I would want to obtain my Master’s Degree for the benefit of myself. After earning my degree, I could go into the workforce and apply my knowledge to what I know within this career choice. But you also need to have skill sets that go along with the job you are going into.
