Stay Tuned: The 101 Series

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

As you’re mapping your future career, there are lots of things to consider. What type of setting do you like to be in? What are your strongest skills? What are the options in today’s job market and what are the educational requirements needed for these jobs?

Next season, ATETV will provide a series of new programs designed to help students and prospective employees answer these questions. The two-part “101 Series” will introduce viewers to five different job sectors – including Environmental Technologies, Lab Work and Manufacturing – and provide an in-depth look at the fields’ educational and course requirements as well as a glimpse of the workplaces, careers and opportunities in these technical arenas.

Think you might be interested in a career in alternative energies for example? The “Intro to the Environment 101” episode will go behind the scenes of a classroom where students are studying environmental technologies – water, wind and solar energy. You’ll watch students conducting experiments using sunlight to generate clean energy. You’ll also visit a college lab where students are learning how water travels through the ground.

Then, in the second part of the Environment 101 episode, ATETV moves from classroom to workplace to see how classroom skills are translated into real-life careers. You’ll visit Environmental Technology employers – the companies that produce water, wind and solar energy — and hear from working technicians how they got their jobs and what their everyday work lives are like.

Charting a career path is exciting and challenging – ATETV’s 101 Series can help provide concrete information and advice to put you on the path to success. Stay tuned.
