Jake's Career Action Plan Due: JANUARY 24, 2017

  1. Personal Profile and Influencing Factors

Interests Survey: Hands On

1. I enjoy working on, and fixing motors on any type of machine.

2. I feel I learn a lot more when being taught with objects rather than being spoken too.

3. I am constantly fiddling with items if I feel they are interesting and wonder how they work.

4. I feel I concentrate more and work harder when working with tools etc.

What are you proud of?

1. Nations Cup... I scored the winning goal in the finals against a team from Russia. This took place in Michigan. This is something I will never forget. I can still remember the crazy crowd and the excitement that came with scoring the last goal against a team that was very good and battled hard. This was a very special moment that I shared with friends and family.


Throughout my life I am constantly being inspired by people that have taught me anything from being kind to trying my best in everything. An example of two incredible mentors of mine are my grandma and grandpa. Ever since I was born grandma and grandpa have past on very useful information. Also, coaches and teachers have really helped me develop as a young male by learning and being athletic which created who I am now.

Values Survey:

Family and Adventure are my top two personal values. I feel these values will help me choose a career because with adventure i will be up for trying any job or any activity given to me. Family, will support me through my decisions just as i support them through theirs. Adventure is something i use everyday. To start, i am a very energetic person that loves to try new thinks and discover things. Family, is amazing and helps you pretty much everything. When i have an everyday problem such as getting a ride home from hockey my family is there for me.

Multiple Intelligence Survey:

Multiple Intelligence skills are Visual, Bodily Kinesthetic, and Auditory. I love to discuss matters and writing down notes and studying. Also, I love visualizing things because i am very creative. Listening is a strong skill of mine in class and when given orders. I chose to learn by doing rather then by watching others do it.

Learning Styles Survey:

Tactile Learning, Visual Learning, and Learning by listening are my top Learning styles. Three tips that i can use in order to learn more is keeping a journal this will help me stay organised and record more important information. Another tip is ask questions this will help me clearly understand ideas and orders that are given and make the best of what i have been asked. I constantly learn by listening in class as it is a huge skill that usually is easily acquired.


Someone that is a great leader that I know is my old coach. He is a police chief in Waterloo/ Kitchener and at the same time made time to be at every practice and game of ours. H e has many great qualities that suit both jobs Listening, Caring, Respect, and Discipline.


Success in my mind is achieving goals, working hard, and finding yourself these will carry you throughout your life opening new doors for you as you enter the future.
