Career Choices and Life Success: Citation
The Career Choices and Life Success program is designed to assist students researching career and life options. Students gain self-knowledge through the use of career assessments and labour market knowledge by meeting prospective employers in information interviews. They also have the opportunity to update their resumes and learn about different careers by participating in work experiences. This 15-week program provides students with the essential skills to contribute to the market place, including communication skills both written and oral. Students create a competency based resume and participate in a competency-based interview. They leave the program with clearly defined goals and an action plan because they have the tools to make good decisions based on relevant information. Students meet informally for 3 months post-CCLS to support networking and ensure accountability for action plans.
Students must be mature, motivated to learn and open to new ideas.
This is an exploratory program aimed at assisting students in identifying and researching realistic career goals and helping them in developing a plan of action to achieve short and long term employment and/or educational goals.
- Applicants should attend an information session.
- Applicants must have a personal interview.
