Here I Am--Where Do I Want to Go? A Career Interest Survey for Native Americans.
Graves, Mary A.
To help Native Americans discover what careers might interest them, the exercises in this workbook manifest the user's needs, beliefs, likes and dislikes, thereby enabling a better choice of a suitable career. Following the first section on pronunciation and meaning of certain words necessary to a school or job search is a section on job dreams and possible roadblocks. Exercises on determining life-style and focusing on oneself follow. A self-inventory helps the user determine likes and dislikes in six areas: artistic, business, inquiring (read scientific books, work in a lab, take physics, chemistry, or geometry course), social (help others with their personal problems), vocational (fix electrical things, take a shop course), and enterprising (influence others, sell something, work for Indian causes). Instructions are included for scoring the self-inventory, matching interests with specific jobs in each area, and finding more information on job(s) chosen. The final section deals with tribal careers (landplanners, engineers, mechanics, clerical workers, accountants, legal attorneys, resource researchers, resource managers) and training opportunities (special programs in Natural Resources for Native Americans at Humboldt State University, University of Wisconsin, University of Albuquerque, and the Lummi Indian School of Aquaculture and Fisheries).
