Resources for Health Career Day

Question from K.M. After School Programs Area Coordinator

"...It is my hope to use it for a Spring Into Health Career Day. How would you organize the health related careers into job lists?"

Here is a list of the careers I see as possibilities:
  • Medical Laboratory Assistant
  • Illustrator (Medical books)
  • Ophthalmic Technician
  • Chef (hospital)
  • Surgeon
  • Dentist
  • Doctor
  • Pharmacist
  • Pediatrician
  • Dietitian
  • Exercise Instructor
  • Cardiologist

To prepare for a Health Career Day, -
  • Customizes Colors to Careers Color Charts to include the occupations that you specified for the Health Career Day.
  • Sorted the occupations and two lists -
    • Alphabetized list
    • Color Code List

The Colors to Careers Color Chart shows
all of the information listed on the
300 Colors to Careers Color Posters –
  • Job Titles
  • Career Color Codes
  • 3 letter Holland Codes
  • Colors to Careers Poster Numbers

Here are additional examples of activities for Health Career Day.

Have students -

  • Complete the Paint Careers With Color Test to identify their Holland Codes or Colors to Careers Codes.
  • Listen to a presentation on the Colors to Careers Codes Model and the Holland or Colors to Careers Codes.
  • Use the Colors to Careers Codes Occupational Posters to gain an understanding of the relationship between the careers & the Holland Codes or Colors to Careers Codes.
