Thanks to Peripatetic Polar Bear and Jane Dark, I, too, have learned that I'm in the right career. My top 10 career results were:
4. ESL teacher
5. foreign language instructor
6, sport psychology consultant
7. website designer
9. music teacher
11. humanitarian aid worker
and amusingly, hairstylist was just above activist somewhere later down the list.
Librarian, for a long time, was the career I wished I'd pursued, along with that of a park ranger or museum docent. So curator isn't too far off the mark.
I'm teaching a unit in a few weeks on preparing for life after college, something I put into the capstone seminar I'm teaching for our seniors. I've realized, of course, that little in my own professional training has really helped me advise students about how to look for jobs straight out of college. I'm reading a lot of job search websites and planning a resume workshop; I've asked them to visit the career center for a counseling appointment (something which seems to have mixed results). Any readers have good ideas for graduating seniors? I'm happy to take suggestions from the peanut gallery as I work up this new unit.
