Personal Information:

Personal Information This information applies to me because it is a career I plan on pursuing when I attend college. It has always been my goal to do something that makes people feel better so the first profession that came into mind was a nurse. I feel like I have the skills needed because I am determined to get all my credentials, I am a people person, and I also try to look out for a persons best interest. It is a well paying and well respected job that will support my kind of lifestyle in the future.


Firefighter/Paramedic Average Wage: 65,000 Length of training: Approx. 1-2 years Schools for training: Can be completed at a fire College, a technical college, or community college.

There will always be demand for Ultrasound techs in California.

Personal Information:

Personal Information I feel I don't have the skills needed for this career because I have not taken the possible training requirements that are needed for Ultrasound Technician. The education and training does not have anything to do with my future because I am leaning towards engineering. I believe $40,000 a year will bee enough for me to live an average life, however, being an average or veteran Ultrasound Technician means making about 60-85,000 a year, which is more than enough to live a healthy life.
