Thinking about the right career for your future is not always easy but finding the right resource and websites to search for careers helps calm the stress of finding a right career.
A great resource to use is the Occupational Outlook Handbook. This gives students an opportunity to look deeper into the career they find interesting. Whether you want to learn more about salaries, education needed, job summaries, or the number of jobs in the career you are looking for, this is a great resource to use. It goes into detail about the work environment you will have and what you will be doing. If you are uncertain about a career the occupational outlook handbook has multiple career choices for someone to research and learn more about!
So go check it out!
This week we have Nellie talking about how to support and guide DACA/Undocumented Students in their post-secondary futures! If you are interested in the PowerPoint in its original form or would like a printer-friendly version of the presentation, the files are below, in both .pptx and PDF formats!
As a counselor in Tennessee, I know that keeping track of whether your students are READY Grads or not is something that can be tiresome and frustrating. However, this tool is something that can help make that process a little easier.
Link to Google Sheet: Link
This tool utilizes the checkboxes in Google Sheets as well as a formula combination to help clarify when a student is a READY Grad. It allows you to update the list over time and not lose your progress. Just copy the Google Doc into your Drive (go to File -> Make a Copy), and then you can use it to your heart's delight!
As a side bonus, these boxes are easy to add and easy to use in other documents, so feel free to add them to your own worksheets (go to Insert -> Checkbox).
Hope this helps! Stay tuned for more resources next week from someone other than me! :)
Trello - Organizing Information & Increasing Productivity
Working with college and career topics and objectives, things can get really messy and really confusing. There are dates and deadlines for every school and program, and it is really easy to get lost in all of it. However, Trello is an intuitive program that can help you organize all of your stuff.
I have posted a few examples of things others use this site for below. I personally use it to keep track of my story, characters, and clues in an RPG that I play with my friends as well as to keep up with goals I set for myself. The set of tools and customization in this program is easily transferable to college students, parents or counselors, and I think it would be a great help for anyone who looks to use it!
Keep an eye out for more resources next week as we continue to let you know what we find or create that is useful! Thanks for your support!
