It is an important life skill for students to think about what they think their future career might entail. This fun career day project and presentation will take students on a journey as they fill out a resume and job application before going on a job interview in front of their peers.
Students will think about their interests and work habits as they explore the 6 different career clusters. They will then fill out a career interest inventory to narrow down a career they may be interested in pursuing.
Students will complete a project on the career that they choose. They will research that career using a notes page. Students will fill out a resume and a job application for that job. Additionally, they will create a business card advertising their new career.
After they have completed these steps, students will go on an interview in front of their classmates. They will dress up as though they already have the job. Their classmates will ask them interview questions (provided on cards that you will pass out). Students will answer the questions as their peers take notes on their strengths and areas for improvement. Also included a rubric for you to grade students on their final presentations.
