Planning Your Career
Planning Your Career is designed to help individuals to make decisions about their career now and in the years to come. It begins with helping students explore how their interests, abilities, values and personality relate to choosing a career and ends with practical advice on how to get a job. Along the way, topics such as sources of career information, training and educational options, financial aid for going to college or vocational school and many more are covered.
As part of this course students complete objective questions which test their knowledge of the concepts and factual information to which they have been introduced, and then they apply this knowledge to their own situation by, among other things, analyzing their interests, abilities and values; identifying occupational clusters which contain jobs which interest them; taking the Self-Directed Search®; and completing a sample job application form. There are 5 examinations in Planning Your Career. Allen, Planning Your Career, American School.
