Career Education  

View Events/Assignments for 

Career education often refers to vocational training for a specific job field. Instead of focusing on academic subjects, a student learns the tools of an occupation through hands-on training.


What is a Career?

The progress and actions taken by a person throughout a lifetime, especially those related to that person's occupations. A career is often composed of the jobs held, titles earned and work accomplished over a long period of time, rather than just referring to one position.
While employees in some cultures and economies stay with one job during their career, there is an increasing trend to employees changing jobs more frequently. For example, an individual's career could involve being a lawyer, though the individual could work for several different firms and in several different areas of law over a lifetime.

Parental Involvement

Parental involvement in career awareness begins at an early age. Before children enter school, opportunities abound for career awareness activities to occur. Parents and extended family members enhance and influence children's knowledge and awareness of careers in a variety of ways. Children identify with family careers early in life. Career awareness is the first step in the career decision-making process, and it begins in the home and community.
