Marvel, one of the careers training with a spear

Careers tend to be the strongest, most agile players in the Hunger Games, having been prepared since birth. The willingness to kill their opponents before the Games even start, cultivated from years of preparation and the support of their families and fellow district citizens, gives the careers a tremendous mental and physiological advantage over the other tributes.

The pack usually forms during training, and at the most, it consists of 6 members. However, they can get members that are from lower districts. During the Cornucopia Bloodbath, they usually are pretty agressive and kill most tributes untill they are the only ones left. After this, they usually turn on each other and fight until they're the only ones left.

Career Districts

Career districts include Districts 1, 2, and 4 in the books. However, in the films, its only Districts 1 and 2. These districts are richer and have more supplies than other districts, giving a huge advantage to their tributes and allowing them to prepare and train, as mentioned earlier. District 1 is the strongest because it's so rich and it has a healthy way of life. District 2 is strong because of the militairy dicipline. District 4, the last career district, is strong because they are the strongest swimmers and know where to get water and stay hydrated, no matter the arena they're in.

Non-Careers that allied with them

These victors only did this to get further in the Games.

  • Tressa Spectral - probably didn't kill any. Instead, they probably drowned during the flood.
  • Jago Potshore - betrayed them by slaughtering them in their sleep
  • Daniel Bernhardt - backstabbed the careers on the last day
  • Peeta Mellark - left the career pack once the Tracker Jackers were attacking him and the alliance

Tributes

They usually have a common weakness, which was that the Careers couldn't handle a lack of food. Another weakness, which sometimes leads to their downfall, is their arrogance. Most people root for them in the Games since they're so fit and skilled at fighting. Some careers that died in the Games were Clove, Cato,  Unknown District 2 Male (74 HG), Glimmer, Marvel, Unknown District 1 Male (74 HG) District 4 Female, District 4 Male (70 HG),District 4 Male, Unknown District 4 Male (74 HG), Kriska Slipnook (50 HG), etc. Out of all of the Games won, 29 of them were won by careers, since two the victors from career districts decided to work alone and not be a career. This means that a career district has won 38% of the time, while normal districts have won 62% of the time.
