Freshman Presentations

Freshman Presentations

Interest/Skill/Work Values Assessments    Initial year of 4-6 Year Career Plan   Career and Occupational Research
 
website resources: northeastmetrotech.com (Guidance tab), kudernavigator.com (Freshman Interest Assessments)

We use laptop technology and as many online resources to find up-to-date information.  We follow the DESE/VTCTS Strands and Competencies so that everyone gets the same information.

Kuder Interest/Skills assessment – we open student kudernavigator.com account, take some tests online to understand interests, skills and work preferences. Important to understand where to get the information from our websites and resources.

We create a 4-6 year career plan in the Career Center to review assessments and how you are doing in shops and academic classes.  We talk about goals this year and how we can break them down to realistic steps for success. 9th grade career plan meetings include a review of your exploratory grades, academic grades, goals, assessment results.  After your meeting with us, your parent / guardian will be asked to open a parent account to view your Career Plan and assessments are online for them to view.

We will do career and occupational research on Kuder, use occupational guides and resources, and have presentations in groups through our website northeastmetrotech.com: what are career assessments and career plans, and what do they mean to me? Tools we use to help you start the process of lifelong career planning: resources for careers, further education and training assessments can improve your quality of life develop self-awareness (what is that?)  Identify strengths and areas for growth Identify what you like and what you don’t like improve your decision-making,  What are the trends for my areas of interest? Which careers do my strengths match up to?  What kind of setting do I want to work in?

What are the differences between people and why it is important in all areas of life to demonstrate respect, including the workplace and we will discuss how being male or female in a career is considered nontraditional. (Spring presentation by upper-class nontraditional students about these topics).

Group discussion on what it means to be a good worker, a good team member, what are employers (and shop teachers) looking for in you? What traits do you have or what skills can you develop to make yourself more desirable? Attendance, responsibility, taking a job from start to finish, being able to communicate with others, having good math and English skills, etc. ….

Graduation credits, how is high school different from middle school, what is a transcript, what classes do we need, what are course planning grids?

Shop Exploratory Program and Shop Selection:  15 exploratories – if you asked for a shop on your application and it is not on your sheet you must let me know.  You can also let me know if you have something you want to see that is not on your list.  You cannot get a permanent shop unless have gone through it and received a grade during the regular school year (Summer Program does not count !!!!)  You have all signed, and your parents have signed, the exploratory description sheet that outlines process.

In grades 10, 11 and 12 Mr. Pisani’s class will emphasize the importance of desirable employability skills such as: communication, critical thinking, problem-solving, positive work behaviors, exposure to business, management and entrepreneurship practices, labor laws, legal and ethical considerations, industry standards, interviewing skills, leadership and teamwork skills, workplace etiquette, business legal structures, financial documents and data, marketing, and federal and state mandated employee rights and laws.

Do the Research on kudernavigator.com and look at Career Pathways: northeastmetrotech.com websites.
