About the Course
The goal of this course is to help students identify possible career paths after high school. They may choose a path that includes additional school, or one with no training needed. All options are considered including gap years, missionary work, various types of training/college, or entrepreneurial options.
Students take several assessments to discover which careers best fit their personality, interests, values, learning style, and skills. They compile a list of careers which they research, then narrow down. They speak with someone in two of their chosen fields, and job shadow. They also research different schools or training opportunities if needed. Should they decide to go to college, we look at posible majors. We also cover resume writing, interviewing, networking, and etiquette. Students will create a career path, gain a better understanding of the process, themselves, and what they need to consider in the future.
Textbook: to be decided (will be around $20)
