Preparing Students for a
Changing World
Judith Moore, Director
Career Planning & Development
 “A high school diploma is the minimal certification
of capacity to perform in the working world.”
 Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics,
Indiana DWD, Workforce Associates
Education with a Purpose:
 Think of Elementary School as PRE-
Think of Middle School as PREThink of High School as PRE More than two-thirds of new jobs will
require some training or postsecondary
education—on-the-job, certification,
apprenticeships, two-year programs,
four-year college and beyond.
Continuing education after high school
is much more important for this
generation than any other.
“Typical” Resources Used to
Pick a Career

TV => There is a big difference between TV drama and “real
life”.

Friends => They’ll know what sounds “cool”, but unless they
have proactively researched, they are probably not a
knowledgeable source of information.

Life’s Interactions => OK, you have used the services of Dentists,
Pharmacists, Teachers, etc. but… Do you really know what it is
like to do their job?

Parents => A great source, if your parent’s career happens to be
“the right one” out of several hundred possibilities for you.
Career Development
 IS:

 IS NOT:
A process that
teaches students
how to evaluate their
options & gather
information about
themselves & the
world of work



Limiting
Pushing premature
choice
Science
“There are too many ideas and too
many people and too many
directions to go. The reason it
matters to care passionately
about something is that it
whittles the world down to a
more manageable size.”

Freshmen Parent Questions:
• Is there anything more important than your children?
• Is there any decision that has a bigger impact on
your child’s life (e.g. personal fulfillment/growth,
happiness, financial well-being) than their choice of
careers?
• Is there any other activity in which such a small
investment of your time can have such an enormous
positive impact on their lives?
“We can never see
past the choices
we don’t
understand.”
Gloria Foster

Freshmen Year Career Goal:
 You will graduate with a “MEANINGFUL
FUTURE PLAN” (that is re-visited yearly)

probability of success.

It is easier to find something
when you know what
