Michael is a 16-year-old boy who was recently assigned to a juvenile justice program. With a history of truancy and other minor offenses, he has always struggled in school. As part of his program, Michael took the SDS, and his Summary Code was RSI (Realistic, Social, Investigative). Although he had never really given much thought to a career, Michael started to become interested in some of occupations that matched his Summary Code: EMT, firefighter, and ambulance driver. Michael’s teacher used the O*NET codes found in the Occupations Finder to get more information about the jobs that interested Michael, as well as their educational requirements. His teacher also scheduled an appointment for Michael with the program’s guidance counselor so that Michael could begin to make plans.
