Teaching Career Exploration is a curriculum guide for new and experienced instructors who want a structured yet flexible outline for teaching in Business and Technology. Eva Marie Foxwell’s lessons are designed with a focus on giving teachers dynamic and interactive lessons, guided learning ideas, detailed assignments, formative and summative assessments, and a wealth of classroom material.
For students, this curriculum guide is designed to provide space to think, reflect, create, and collaborate toward formal projects that engage real-world business expectations.
This first unit of Teaching Career Exploration offers seven lessons to help students expand their self-knowledge in order to explore careers that fit their learning style, interests, strengths, and abilities. It is imperative that students begin exploring careers by increasing their self-awareness.
It’s important to keep students focused on exploring careers during this unit. There is no imperative for them to find their one right or perfect career at this time. They should be asked to question their previous assumptions about themselves, their imagined careers, and their yet undiscovered abilities and talents. They should also be encouraged to conduct research and talk to experts to gain insight into real careers. The ultimate purpose of this unit is to expose students to career resources and encourage them to explore careers through their unique set of likes, strengths, abilities, styles, and desires.
In Unit B, students will gain practical and real-world experience in the job application process. Referring to their self-assessments from Unit A, students will now turn to finding, applying, and interviewing for the job of their dreams.
It’s imperative for students to see applying for jobs as a process, not a one-time action. Research, preparation, practice, and follow-through are all part of applying for and securing a job, as are soft skills like interpersonal communication, body language, and time management (for detailed and engaging lessons, see my book Teaching Business Soft Skills).
Students’ first step in a successful job search is to research their industry and companies, learning to read and decipher job ads, discover a company’s mission, and their fit for a position.
If you want to purchase Lesson 9-10, students will research and create a resume and cover letter, tailored specifically for one position. We also have a MEGA BUNDLE for writing a cover letter, resume and interviewing.
It’s important for students to shape customized job application materials rather than send out generic ones. Finally, students will research, rehearse, and perform job interviews.
Among the unit’s many important lessons, students will understand the importance of being well-prepared, professionally presented, and poised. Lessons will show students that a good first impression is built on many different, sometimes hard to define factors.
Overall, Unit B provides students with an in-depth and thorough introduction to finding and applying for jobs, giving them research, analytical, and soft skills necessary to influence hiring managers and position themselves well in a competitive job market.
