Transcript of Careers

If you are STILL undecided about what career you should choose, then by all means take an occupational assessment, either at your high school, your college’s career services' office, or
with us
.
STILL UNDECIDED
Before you become frustrated and disappointed...here are a few items you need to consider and investigate:

What cities around the country provide the best salaries and benefits for teachers?
Where are the best teacher education programs located and what distinguishes one from the other?
Do you know any teachers you can ask for advice?
SHOULD I KEEP LOOKING...

WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR?

Did you know that today people
change jobs/careers
12-15
times over their lifetime?



CHOOSING A CAREER

Careers
If you still need more options, check out the Occupational Outlook Handbook, produced by the U.S. Department of Labor.

The Occupational Outlook Handbook is the
bible
of career information, loaded with all kinds of job descriptions and data you will find absolutely essential.

Still Need More Options...
Under the Career section in your MyCCR Profile, there is a link to a career assessment analysis. It will ask you a series of questions about your personality, your likes and dislikes, etc.









The assessment will provide you with additional career options that may or may not interest you. At least, you have begun the exploration process.

Career Assessment

You’ve heard the old saying, “
The best laid plans...”

Being flexible is a tremendous asset to have as you pursue your career pathway. You will definitely run into detours, but those can be temporary, or a blessing in disguise.

Stand firm on what you love! Opportunities to turn that into a money making machine are all around you, some visible, most invisible!
HOW DO I CHOOSE A CAREER?

Choosing the right career to pursue is usually influenced by several key factors...









The current job market
Education and professional background
Your skills, talents, and personality
Family legacy

HOW TO CHOOSE A CAREER

Always chat with professionals in your field(s) of interest, as well as family members and friends – gather data and opinions, then evaluate how they relate to you as a person and as a future professional.
Who Can I Ask?
Contrary to popular opinion, an often overlooked determinant factor in selecting a career is choosing a occupation or profession you
LOVE
.

CHOOSING A CAREER

DO I HAVE CHOICE?

Investigate your options. Utilize your campus' career resource center. Take advantage of internships. Seek out job shadowing opportunities from professionals in your field of interest.

"Luck is where the crossroads of opportunity and preparation meet."
Roman Philosopher, Seneca

Take, for example, teaching. You love education, so you want to become a teacher. In exploring your educational options, you find that teachers don’t necessarily make good salaries.

You start to look at other careers, but none of them stir up the passion in you like teaching.


WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR?

When you are in high school, thinking about becoming an engineer or a nurse sounds great.

However
, if you do not have a talent for science and math, then following an engineering or nursing career path may not be the best choice for you.


SHOULD I LOOK FOR...
People often think that the best careers are the
ones that make lots of money. And sometimes they are right...
but only sometimes!
CHOOSING A CAREER

Making money is important because it's the basis of how we support our lifestyles.

But doing something that you have a talent for and that you love is just as important as the pay check.

SHOULD I LOOK FOR...
A career you love provides you with significant motivation to achieve your dream of earning that
big salary
.
Make being prepared your # 1 priority.
Luck and opportunity will follow...
most of the time, anyways!
