A great way to support students in career exploration is to show an interest! A resourse used at Winning Futures to help students compare and learn more about their career interests is The Occupational Outlook Handbook website – http://www.bls.gov/oco/.
By providing information on careers, students will be better prepared to set their education goals!
Ways to use the Occupational Outlook Handbook site—
~To find out about a specific occupation or topic, use the Search
box that is on every page…you enter your search term in the box.
~To find out about the many occupations, browse through listings using the Occupation
link that is on the left side of each page.
~For a listing of all occupations in alphabetical order, go to the A-Z Index and select a letter.
Our Harper Woods partner program recently took a College tour. The goal was to expose students to the benefits of continuing education and to get students excited about their future education and career goals. This trip, for many of the students, was their first time on a college campus and I think our goal was accomplished!
During the event, students went on a peer-guided tour highlighting important campus offices such as financial aid and admission, as well as the student union, campus bookstore and library. The students not only got to witness the academic environment, they also got a great “snapshot” of the social environment that college life offers.
