If you have not finished researching your 4 careers finish that (Part A) and then move on to Part B

Graphic Organizer.

2. Rename the copy per#_first last_Bracketology
3. Rank your jobs 1-4, put that at the top of the Graphic Organizer
4. Double Click on the "Bracket" and insert your 4 jobs (1v4, 2v3)
5. Follow the directions and write paragraphs 1 & 2. Please make sure you are
COMPARING and CONTRASTING the jobs, not just telling me about them. Paragraph one is looking at the info they saved from Oregon CIS and
Paragraph two
looks at their values, interests, etc from the Career Planning Worksheet.

Determine a winner using the criteria in the Career Planning Worksheet
