Career Direction 2

Career Direction 2 is a comprehensive career guidance program designed to help high school students:

  • make appropriate educational and career choices.
  • enhance their job-finding knowledge and skills through useful tools and strategies.
  • understand the importance of making informed choices regarding alcohol, drugs, and personal relationships.

Career Direction 2 can be tailored for 1 to 3 class periods. Students will be fully engaged as they work through a program that is all about them - their priorities, their personality, their interests, and their abilities! They will consider possible careers as related to their interests, find out how to research the careers further, examine the education and training required, and be asked to think about the costs for that education.

One module of the material focuses on job-getting skills such as effective resume and cover letter writing. There is also a section covering job interview strategies, with four short example videos the students evaluate. The workshop is motivating and can truly help students figure out their next steps.

Career Direction 2 is an appropriate fit in English, business, or in a Counselor's "Special Event." Certain sections can also be tailored to be presented during appropriate subjects, e.g. the "Drugs and Alcohol Education" section is a great fit with health and PE, but could also fit in science, chemistry, or biology. It is also an excellent topic in the few weeks prior to Prom or Homecoming.
