It measures up to human services because being an EMT is helping or providing an important service to people. My chosen career is to be an Emergency Medical Technician. The career i'm comparing it to is a hairdresser. These careers don't really have anything in common except the fact that they help people. They help people in a completely different way than each other. EMT's help people is they are in a traumatic situation and need medical attention, most commonly car accidents. Hair dressers help people by providing a way to keep clean and to make yourself look good. Both jobs have to keep a sanitary station, have good technique, and have to think of others. To me these similarities are part of skill and abilities. You can push yourself to be more of these qualities but really it just depends on the type of person you are and how well you deal with people. I would work well in human services, trying to care for people and making people happy. It makes me think differently about my career choice, maybe I shouldn't be an EMT. But what I don't get is how were supposed to choose our career now because we are going to change so much as people before its actually time to choose so we really don't know what were going to be doing in the future. I might want to change my career but i'm not sure what i would change it too.
