Career Planning and Development

Course Description

A one-semester course designed for upper level high school students, Career Planning and Development introduces students to the vast working world. Divided into four units, the course will help students: investigate careers as they apply to personal interests and abilities, develop skills and job search documents needed to enter the workforce, explore the rights of workers and traits of effective employees, and address the importance of professionalism and responsibility as careers change and evolve. Throughout the course, students develop useful career documents, including a self-assessment profile, a cover letter and a résumé, using video and written step-by-step instructions. These documents can then be used by students in an educational or career portfolio.
