By late middle school, most kids have some sense of work they might like. Talk to him in general terms such as those found in the Occupational Outlook Handbook or the Dictionary of Occupational Titles. Both of these resources are online.
The information in the Dictionary of Occupational Titles comes from those people who have direct experience working the job.
The Occupational Outlook Handbook gives details about working conditions of a job, the training, the kind of work that is done and the future of the job. Some of the information is hilarious and you and Greg will look at each other and say, “Are there people who really do this job?”
Every job in America is presented in these two resources. So, go and have fun!
