from:Bittner, Jamie

to:Fall Career Management, 12th, 4

What a great introduction to Career Management last week.  We had good discussions about how our values, interests and abilities can lead us to meaningful careers.  I think some of you discovered some careers that you had never heard of or thought of before.  This brings us right into week 2! 

 

This week I will be introducing a Career Research Project that will take a couple of weeks for us to complete.  This project is all-inclusive.  It will include researching careers, writing a business letter, using the internet to find information, using classified ads, and interviewing skills.  It will conclude with a class presentation.  We will discuss more about all this tomorrow in class.  Here is a quick overview.
