Career planning is
a process that involves students, parents, teachers, counselors, and the
community. The goal is to help students to make informed and thoughtful
decisions about themselves and their future. The planning process includes
helping students develop and implement an individual career plan.
CFNC, Futures for
Kids, and Bridges are valuable websites that have on-line Career Inventories
which assess their interests,
preferences, values, abilities, and talents in order to identify either general
or specific careers. In addition, students may further explore careers by
participating in Web Research, Informational Interviews, Job Shadowing,
Internships, Summer Programs, Part-time Jobs, and Volunteering Opportunities.
