May 14, 2014 - The grade 7 & 8 students at St. James Catholic School, recently used Career Cruising to help them choose a career to research. Some students displayed their work on a backboard while others created a slideshow on a Macbook. On May 6, they presented their work in the gym as a "career fair" for one another and guests.
Students had to describe the career, list the required skills and working conditions, display a sample career path with possible earnings, conduct an interview with someone in the field, look at the education required to become qualified for this career. Then they had to work backwards from the admission requirements to the college or university, to select their secondary school courses.
Next, we will look at the beginning salaries for their career choices and create budgets including taxes, rent, vehicle expenses, utilities, groceries, etc.
