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.” Meryl Streep Adaptation 2002 Career Verification Activities • FMP—Grade 9 • Orientation to Life & Careers Class—Grade 10 • Lunch with a Professional—Grades 9-12 • Job Shadowing—Grades 9-12 • Unpaid Internships—Grades 11-12 • Paid Work Experience—Grade 12 • Guest speakers—Grades 9-12 • Career Interest Inventories—Grades 9-12 • Video Conferencing—Grades 9-12 • Work Ethic Certification—Grades 11-12 • Service Learning/Volunteering—Grades 9-12 • Extra-Curricular Activities—Grades 9-12 • Course Electives—Grades 9-12 • Navigation 101 Program—Grades 9-11 Career Major Clusters--ABEAMS • A rt, Media and Communications • B usiness, Finance, Marketing, and Customer Services • E ngineering, Science, and Technology • A griculture, Manufacturing, and Transportation • M edical and Health Related Services • S ocial, Personal, and Public Services A BROAD SET OF RELATED OCCUPATIONS USED WHEN ORGANIZING CAREER INFORMATION, CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION, AND STUDENT WORK-BASED OPPORTUNITIES POS: Within the 6 clusters are 18 identified Programs of Study.
