Leah CunhaLangComputer Apps1/12/17Career Research Paper I took a career interest profiler to see what types of careers my personality fits best with. One cluster I received from my career interest profile was education and training. Another cluster I received was law, public safety, corrections and security. The last cluster I received was arts, audio/video technology and communications. I chose to research one career from each cluster. For law and education, I chose interpreter/translator. I enjoy learning languages, so this would be an interesting career for me. The job I chose for law, public safety, corrections and security was criminologist. Lastly, I chose musician for a career in the arts. An interpreter/translator interprets oral or sign language, or translates written text into another language (Naviance). They communicate with people outside of their organization to represent their organization to customers, the public government, and other places. The information is exchanged in person, writing, by telephone, or by e-mail (Naviance). There are four main types of interpreters. The first is simultaneous interpretation. Simultaneous interpreters perform immediate conversion from one language to another. Another type is consecutive interpretation. They translate after every few seconds. In addition, there are liaison interpreters that translate after every sentence. Lastly, sign language interpreters perform immediate conversion (Prospects). Interpreters and translators work in multiple different settings such as community based events/assignments, business functions (meetings and conferences), or criminal justice proceedings (Prospects). To become an interpreter or translator, you need at least a bachelor’s degree and native-level proficiency in more than one language (Bureau of Labor Statistics). I am aiming to become fluent in Spanish, so this is something I could achieve. The median wage for this career is about $46,120 as of May 2016 (Bureau of Labor Statistics). The national employment outlook is expected to grow 17% from 2016 to 2026, which is much faster than average (Bureau of Labor Statistics). A criminologist creates theories to explain crime as a social phenomenon (Legalbeagle). Criminologist may work in “federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies including the FBI, DHS, and police departments” (Careers in Law, Criminal Justice… PDF). They also spend time researching hypotheses, gathering information, analyzing data, and presenting their studies to colleagues, various agencies/organizations, and or the general public. Lastly, the study of criminology lack the precision and methodological rigor of forensic science, and they use sociological theories and methods to study the behavior of criminals and the responses of societies to crime (Legalbeagle). One wanting to pursue this field must acquire a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, sociology, or psychology. It is recommended to get a master’s degree or PhD in behavioral sciences as well (Legal Career Path). The median wage for a criminologist is about $72,430 a year, as of 2013 (Legal Career Path). The employment outlook is expected to grow 11% from 2012 to 2022, which is about average. A musician is someone who plays instruments either alone, or with others. They perform for live audiences, or record music in recording sessions (Careers in the Performing Arts… PDF). A musician usually gets a job by auditioning or arranging performances. Some people hire talent agents to represent them and help them find job opportunities (Truity). If they aren’t able to find jobs by performing, musicians may decide to teach children or adults in private lessons (Truity). People in the music field use digital tools such as software for reading, writing, and transcribing music and for recording and altering digital files for post-production (Careers in the Performing Arts…). To be a professional musician, one isn’t required to obtain a certain degree, but it is necessary to have a high-level understanding of music (Careers in the Performing Arts…). A musician’s yearly median wage is approximately $41,348 (Payscale). The employment outlook is slower than average, with a growth of 5% from 2012 to 2022 (Truity). Overall, researching careers taught me a lot about different options for my future. Being an interpreter sounds like a difficult, but interesting career option. Criminology is intriguing and may possibly be an option for me. A musician career is something I am interested in, but will probably not pursue. A criminologist career is best suited to my skills and interests because crime is interesting to me, I like questioning people’s actions, and I am observant and inquisitive.Works Cited
