Non-Traditional Careers

*

Gender on the Job Career exploration is serious business. As you survey different career options, you may feel discouraged from following certain paths because you are a female or because you are a male. Take note when this happens! Gender stereotypes are actually what contribute to the under-representation of women and men in many occupations. These stereotypes or biases often occur unconsciously. Your career planning process must be informed, thoughtful and open-minded. Use the following tips to help you stay informed on your career journey: » Accept no limits. Your career choice is based on your interests and determination to develop skills. It should not be based on gender stereotypes. Value your dreams and aspirations. » You will possibly spend 50+ years working. Make an informed decision based on job opportunities and interests, and choose something you will enjoy. Learn the standards of performance and the skill set required for an occupation. Remember, you are not expected to have all the skills before you start training. That’s why NICC is here! » Seek out mentors in non-traditional occupations and look for shadowing or volunteer opportunities in these areas. This will help you make informed decisions and develop a support system. If you need a hand with this, seek help from staff at your high school, NICC or your parents. » When both men and women work in the same industry, that industry becomes stronger and is more representative of our world as a whole. Both genders bring unique experiences, perspectives and skill sets to an occupation.

»

It takes courage to stand up and break tradition; but it’s your life and you are in charge.

*Non-traditional careers are occupations in which one gender comprises less than 25 percent of all individuals employed in that field.

How to Use this Guide Planning for the future will help you make good choices for class selection in high school and prepare you for college and a successful career. Prior to using this guide, it is recommended you complete a career interest inventory. Ask your counselor about taking one, or complete one online at www.careertech.org/student-interest-survey. Completing an inventory will assist you in narrowing down the education and career choices provided in this guide to those that best suit your interests and abilities.

Career Clusters™ There are 16 national Career Clusters™, which link what is learned in school with the knowledge and skills that are needed for success in college and a career. These 16 Career Clusters™, defined throughout this guide, assist in planning for the future by identifying pathways from high school to two- and four-year colleges, graduate school and the workplace.

Look for this symbol to indicate which career cluster you are in.

Note: This guide intentionally omits the Government and Public Administration cluster, so it includes complete information on 15 clusters throughout. For more information on the Government and Public Administration cluster, please visit: www.careertech.org/government

Career Pathways The 16 national Career Clusters™ are broken down further into smaller subsets of occupations or pathways. When you see this symbol and text » Sample Careers you will know you are exploring career pathways in the guide. Career Pathways are grouped around common knowledge or skills needed for career success. Career Pathways can be used to further explore careers within the Career Clusters™ that interest you.

Each Career Cluster™ section includes: • Top cluster occupations by annual growth rate in Iowa • Potential career pathways within each cluster • Sample careers for each pathway • Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) programs available for each pathway • Suggested high school courses

Career Planning Worksheets

The “Career Planning” worksheet available on pages 8-9 of this guide and online at www.nicc.edu/careerlearninglink will help get you started using the guide.

Employment Information The Iowa Workforce Development (IWD) Region 1 (Allamakee, Chickasaw, Clayton, Delaware, Dubuque, Fayette, Howard and Winneshiek counties) Career Cluster™ analysis provides detailed information on benefits offered, wages, skills required and employment growth within each Career Cluster™. This information is provided to further assist in career planning while using this guide. Career Clusters™ are a break in the tradition of thinking about the labor market in terms of industries and occupational groups. Whereas industries revolve around a similar product group and occupational groups focus on similar roles, Career Clusters™ more directly identify the knowledge and skills needed to follow a pathway toward career goals and provide a context for exploring the many occupational options available. Traditional occupational groups may include jobs with similar responsibilities but on widely disparate career paths, while Career Clusters™ group jobs more directly related to their career pathways across multiple industries. Students, parents and educators can use Career Clusters™ to help focus educational planning towards obtaining the necessary knowledge, competencies and training for success in a particular career pathway across multiple industries. Employers can use the Career Clusters™ information to compare benefits and employment growth for the groups in which they hire. The information can be a powerful tool to assess competitiveness and business strategy for future hiring.

There are 16 Career Clusters™:

• • • • • • • •

Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Architecture and Construction Arts, Audio/Video Technology and Communications Business, Management and Administration Education and Training Finance Government and Public Administration Health Science

• • • • • • • •

Hospitality and Tourism Human Services Information Technology Law, Public Safety, Corrections and Security Manufacturing Marketing, Sales and Service Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Transportation, Distribution and Logistics

Since Career Clusters™ consist of occupations across many industries, businesses may employ people that are included in many Career Clusters™. For this reason, a business may be counted in a single or many Career Clusters™. While each business may identify more closely with a particular industry or even a particular occupational group, the employees may identify more closely with their particular Career Cluster™. This makes the information extremely important from a human resources perspective to better empathize and plan for the needs of the distinct groups of employees. There are 16,666 businesses in IWD Region 1, reporting a total employment of 115,985. The graph to the right shows a breakdown by employment size of those businesses.
