Preparing Students for a Changing World Judith Moore, Director Career Planning & Development
“A high school diploma is the minimal certification of capacity to perform in the working world.” Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, Indiana DWD, Workforce Associates
Education with a Purpose: Think of Elementary School as PRE- Think of Middle School as PRE- Think of High School as PRE- More than two-thirds of new jobs will require some training or postsecondary education—on-the-job, certification, apprenticeships, two-year programs, four-year college and beyond. 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: A process that teaches students how to evaluate their options & gather information about themselves & the world of work IS NOT IS NOT: 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

Freshmen Parent Questions: Is there anything more important than your children? Is there any decision that has a bigger impact on your child’s life (e.g. personal fulfillment/growth, happiness, financial well-being) than their choice of careers? Is there any other activity in which such a small investment of your time can have such an enormous positive impact on their lives?
“We can never see past the choices we don’t understand.” Gloria Foster The Matrix Reloaded 2003
Freshmen Year Career Goal: You will graduate with a “MEANINGFUL FUTURE PLAN” (that is re-visited yearly) and a “back-up plan” that has a high probability of success.
Your Future It is easier to find something when you know what you are looking for.
