Ideas For Discussion People in America are free to choose their occupations. They should choose something that is needed. For example, in early Arizona there was great need for harness makers. Today, there are few jobs for harness makers. Instead, there is need for computer technicians. Selecting an occupation is one of the most important things you will do. People find that they sometimes have to change occupations several times because the needs of the economy change. What does this mean for your future? How should you prepare yourself for an occupation? Will you have to have more training after your first job? What will you have to do to keep a good job? Have a class discussion on these important questions. Jobs dealing with modern technologies will be important for Arizonans of the 21st century. Chapter 15 • Review Activities  159
