Part I: Career Exploration - Tips for Instructors

Teaching Career Exploration

  • If you have not taught career development before, you might consider having a counselor at your campus assist you with the activity or conduct the first career exploration session for you.

  • The EDUC 1300 course contains a Learning Outcome that includes Career Exploration. If your text does not contain a chapter on career, you may teach the Career Exploration requirement using these activities. It is important that you are familiar with career development and how values, personality, interests, environment, and abilities/aptitudes affect career choice. There are several resources and inventories on-line to assess values, personality, and interest if your text does not include these. They are listed in the Career Exploration section of the EDUC 1300 Community Group.

  • Personality Type- Ideally, the student should know their personality type and how personality affects career satisfaction. Many of the campuses use the “Do What You Are”, the Myers-Briggs, or another personality inventory that includes career. This inventory lists careers that match the student’s personality type. This is a starting point for career research.

  • Interests and Values Inventories or Assignments- the “Do What You Are” contains an interest assessment also. There are several good interest inventories on-line and great activities that explore values as they relate to career. The “Choices Planner” site listed on the Career Exploration handout contains an interest and values inventory that can be done on-line.

  • The activity, “Your Career: How Much Do You Know?” can be used as an introduction to the Career Exploration activity. If you do not have a computer assisted classroom, you will need to reserve a computer lab for this lesson. After introducing career exploration, give students five minutes to try and answer all the questions. Tell them they will need to know this information before they can make an informed career choice. (Few students will know all the answers). They will also need to know this information for their Career Exploration Project. After five minutes, have them take the paper to a computer. Instructor leads the students through the career research websites and has them follow along. (See “How to Research Careers and Majors”). Give the students class time to navigate the websites, looking up the answers to “Your Career: How Much Do You Know”. Tell them to keep this information to complete their Career Exploration Project. If you cannot reserve a computer lab, you can demonstrate how to navigate the OOH, the ACINET, and the Sloan Cornerstone Center Site and have them complete the activity as an outside assignment. Revisit the assignment during the next class and before they complete their Career Exploration Project.
