bettyandbob Posted September 29, 2012 Share Posted September 29, 2012 OK this is a weird way to go about looking possible careers, but I decided to compile a list. I'm trying to think about careers that require college where you don't end up behind a desk. So, lawyer, accountant and computer programmer are out. dd has been thinking about veterinary medicine for some time (has been in 2 4H clubs, runs a petcare business, and helps with a guinea pig rescue). She's also good at math and science. Anyway, she's not wedded to that completely and I think she probably needs to broaden her thoughts. One thing I do know is she likes to move. She's not a serious athlete, but she likes to move. She takes 5 ballet classes a week. Her favorite class (she goes to public high school ) is PE. I've discovered other parents in her peer group (honors classes) find this odd. She generally has all or mostly A's so she's not truly weak in any subject. I thought maybe looking at careers from this angle would be interesting. I want to put together a list that goes across subject areas where the person moves at work. Please help me expand if you have ideas. Medical (doctor, nurse, chiropractor, pt, ot, slp, more?) Veterinarian Forest Ranger, Naturalist, landscape designer,... teacher (high school, elementary, ABA therapist, adaptive PE, PE, sp ed) military careers -- this is a bit broad Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
