Help students find a career that matches their personality and goals with this introductory activity. Teachers can go through the questionnaire with the class, clarifying meaning and adding examples to help students make the right choices for themselves. Encourage students to be honest and avoid choosing statements that they think they should choose. After completing the questionnaire, students will use critical thinking skills to answer questions that ask them to apply these statements to various scenarios and career avenues. In the last section of the assignments, students will reflect on their answers and write about the values and personality traits that this survey brought to light that could influence their career choice.
This could be used as an introductory activity for a research paper or speech about careers or used as a mini lesson/isolated activity.
