The World Of Work

Allianz Arena, MunichEver wonder what it will take to get a certain job? The folks who brought us the ACT have also provided a The World of Work Map. As students explore their desired career options, the wheel provides them with the current opportunities for that occupation, potential income and the type of skills and studies required.
Besides its obvious use by the guidance office, teachers can find explanation or application of their classes to a variety of fields. For example, why would a surgical technician need my programming class? The answer is that someone in the OR needs to understand the robot performing the surgery.
