Career Advisement
 

Career Development is a lifelong process that often begins in childhood. To help students become College and Career Ready, a goal for school counselors should be to give students current available options so that they can maximize their choices for high school and beyond. Annually students need to complete career searches so that they can evaluate current interests and aptitudes, work values and be able to understand themselves more clearly. Parents need to be informed as well so that they understand what schools are doing to better prepare their children for a career after high school graduation. This parental support is essential so that they can assist their child through discussions about careers and choosing paths for their future.
