Before Career Day, I did not know that much about money and what I was going to do after I graduated from high school. I knew that I wanted to do something involved with health and medicine, or something agricultural. I did not know of many jobs before Career Day. I did not know how many opportunities I have after I graduate, but I do know that life will be hard. However, I did not know how to save money and be ready for unexpected things that could happen in life.
At the Reality Store, I learned how to save my money and how to be ready for the unexpected things in life. I realized how much you would have to give up if you had children and also that having children will cost a lot. At the Reality Store, there were stations set up to help us learn how to save money and be prepared for life. There were things that I had know clue you had to buy, and things that cost a lot more than I thought they did. I definitely learned a lot more about life from the Reality Store.
At the end of the day we listened to speakers that told us about there jobs. The first one I went to was from OSU ATI and she told us about the many agricultural jobs that you can have. Her job was to speak to students about agricultural jobs that you can study at OSU ATI. The second speaker I went to was a graphic designer for Iowa State football. He makes designs of football players and he gets paid for it. I never knew that you could get paid for things like he does. The final people that I went to was from Fisher Titus, and both of the ladies talked about many of the jobs that are available. Many of the jobs that they talked about interested me. I learned about many jobs that I never knew were available during Career Day.
