Sigiplus: Sigiplus is the friendly computer in Career Services that lets you think about yourself, what is important to you, what you want to avoid, what you want to do. Sigiplus helps you sort through what you are good at and where (in what environment) you might like to work, and then suggests career fields you might want to explore. Teachers sometimes find that Sigi suggests they might be interested in a career as a military officer or a clergy person or a teacher and they freak out! But what Sigi is saying is that the student's intests are similar to those of professionals in the three careers, and, what does a military officer do? Teach? Organize? Lead? Discipline? What does a clergy person do? Communicate? Counsel? Teach? The difference is that a teacher chooses to work with children in a school; a military officer chooses to work with young adults in a very structured setting; and a clergy person chooses to work with all ages in a religious setting. You have many choices: check them out. Sigiplus also gives you good information on salaries, opportunities, job descriptions, education required and so on. Sigi even has a decision-making grid to help you make some of those choices. Listen to Rolf Fricke: On Wednesday, April4, 7pm, in the Exhibition Lounge.
