Your First Career Exploration

Here is a list of the work you should have completed up until this point:

In your Journal/Blog
  1. Setting S.M.A.R.T. Goals [did you add them to E-Pearl?]
  2. TOKW assignment
  3. Entry on your Cover Letter and C.V.
  4. Entry on Communication and Teamwork

E-Pearl Artifacts:
  1. TOKW Assignment (did you attach the URL of your Blog?)
  2. Cover Letter and C.V. (attach both of them as separate Word documents.)
  3. Career Exploration #1
Career Exploration #1

For the rest of Term 2, we will be concentrating on your first career exploration. Your project will have FOUR parts...
  1. Proposal (what's your top five career choices?)
  2. Exploration (research!)
  3. Presentation (ooooh....Scary!)
  4. Follow-up and Works Cited (reflect!)
The complete project will be due JANUARY 9th 2009. However, your presentation will be due before that, so be prepared! CHECK WHEN YOU ARE PRESENTING! All you have to present is some of the main points of your exploration: Did you interview someone? What did you learn throughout this project? What are your thoughts on this career now that you have tried it out? Etc.

I have lots of tools for you to use, SO USE THEM! Here's just a small taste:
  • DIIGO - cery cool internet researching tool, get into it!
  • Toolkits - pick your career and we'll see if you can use one of the toolkits I have!
  • ACADEMOS.QC.CA - great site for interviewing people about their careers.
  • VODZONE - Wanna watch a movie? Check out Discovery education
