BIG PLANS- Boy Scouts Recruiter

Remember waaaay back a few weeks ago when we read the book Big Plans in class?

We made a list as a class about different occupations that fascinate us, and a list of questions we would like to ask about those occupations.

Today we have our first interview! Mr. Jones from the Boy Scouts of America was visiting our school on Monday to promote the organization, and we were not going to let an opportunity pass us by! Mr. Jones was gracious enough to agree to being interviewed and of course we have it all on film. :)

You can watch the interview {HERE} or watch it below.

1. Highest degree needed for this profession?
Bachelor's Degree. Mr. Jones attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and got his degree in Communications.

2. Specific classes or skills for this position?
Because Mr. Jones travels to speak to individuals about Scouting, he uses his Communications Degree and eloquent verbal skills quite a bit.

3. Typical work day?
With the beginning of school and the need to travel to many elementary schools, Mr. Jones works around 12 hour days. Lots of traveling and presenting.

4. Any special equipment used in this profession?
As a promoter for the Scouts, Mr. Jones is required to stay in communication with lots of people. He relies on his cell phone, computer and car to keep him connected to the world.

5. Position in the company?
 Mr. Jones is a Senior District Executive. He works for the Boy Scouts in the Chattanooga area.

6. How long did you have to practice for this position?
No practice required! Mr. Jones saw an advertisement for the position and it fit with his communications background. After his interview, he was hired on the spot!

7. Starting salary?

Thank you, Mr. Jones for being our first victim... um, willing participant! You were a great sport and my male students were excited about everything you shared about the Boy Scouts.
