#PHSfit Career of the Day: Fitness Trainer

Fitness trainers and instructors lead, instruct, and motivate individuals or groups in exercise activities, including cardiovascular exercise (exercises for the heart and blood system), strength training, and stretching. They work with people of all ages and skill levels. Employers prefer to hire certified fitness trainers and instructors. Personal trainers are often required to be certified to begin working with clients or with members of a gym or other type of health club. Group fitness instructors may be allowed to begin without certification, but employers often encourage or require them to become certified.

#PHSfit Career of the Day: Curator

Every time you visit a museum or library or read historical research, you can bet that a curator was responsible for organizing, compiling, and indexing the artifacts that you find. Curators usually have bachelor's degree in something broad like anthropology or history, and also masters' degrees in fields like library science. Curators are passionate about advancing knowledge and believe in the merit of preserving the integrity of artifacts and documents.

#PHSfit Career of the Day: Actor

In professional acting, an artist takes on roles that are assigned to him or her on screen or on stage. Actors get paid to portray characters that have existed in the screenwrighter's or playwright's imagination in a way that a director envisions them. Actors can work in commercials, plays, television shows, or movies, and are responsible to memorize lines anywhere form a few lines to over an hour. You should have some formal training, which prepares you for the audition for a theater arts major, and aspiring actors should be willing to work several years before getting their big break.
