1. Go to to see a list of careers in the Arts, Audio/Visual Technology and Communications career cluster. Select a career within this cluster to research. Make sure to choose an occupation that you are interested in or would like to find out more about.

2. Go to the Minnesota Career Information System website. You will need to login to use the website. See your worksheet for login info.

• Click on “Occupations”
• Click on the letter that starts the career you choose (ex. C for camera operator)

3. Spend time exploring all the information provided about your occupation of choice. In particular, click on the “wages” tab.

Then click on the “Select Different States” button. Copy down the median yearly wage for 10 different states of your choosing along with the United States statistic. You should have 10 states (including MN) and the United States as your data set.
