Grade 9 Career Plans

GRADE 9 meetings and presentations focus on vocational interest and work place assessments, exploration of occupations, and goal setting. Freshmen learn about earning academic and exploratory credits. We ask students to think of what they can do this year to plan for their future success, and to realize the commitment it takes to reach those goals. We discuss learning how to make decisions and setting action plans. 9th grade goal setting focuses on setting academic and technical goals such as: doing the best they can every exploratory to be competitive and to have as many options as possible, identifying resources in the school, understanding the connection between academics and school to work programs, researching occupations, and getting help to get organized and improving study habits. We discuss setting personal and social goals such as the benefits of: playing a sport, or volunteering in community service activities, or joining clubs. Students are encouraged to explore career paths, to do further research to understand what skills, training and education they need to be successful in a career, and are asked to identify their interests, and think about what would give them job satisfaction.

Northeast Metro Tech HS sponsors an online career and college planning system northeastmetro.kuder.com for all our students and their parents/guardians. All freshmen are vocationally tested with the Kuder online Interest, Skills and Workplace Assessments in small groups in the Career Center. Once all students are tested, they have individual meetings with the Career Counselor and/or their Freshmen Counselor to review assessment results, learn to use their northeastmetro.kuder.com account, identify and save for further research any occupational and career paths of interest, and create their 9th grade Career Plan. Parents/guardians will be notified when this meeting occurs (November through January) and can now follow the instructions to open their own account to review their student's online assessment results, career plan, career interest clusters, and any saved/favorite occupations. This parent/guardian account is available until the student turns 18 years of age. Click the tab under this section labeled Parent/Guardian Accounts and follow the login directions. Any questions, contact Ms. Mills in the Career Center at x 1112.

FRESHMEN PRESENTATION

Welcome to the Career Center:  Ms. Mills, Career Counselor

Ms. Horkan and Ms. Mejia – 9th grade counselors

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 will open your Kuder account, take some tests online to understand your interests, skills and work preferences. It is important that you understand where to get the information from our websites and resources.

We will create a 4-6 year career plan to review your assessments and how you are doing in shops and academic classes.  We will talk about your 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 and 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?

We will talk about 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).

We will talk in groups and brainstorm 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. ….

We are going to talk about 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 Selection:  You should all have 14 exploratories and a STEM experience.  If you asked for a shop on your application and it is not on your sheet you must let Ms. Mills know.  You can also ask if you have something you want to see that is not on your list and we will schedule it on a space available basis.

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 !!!!)  STEM is not a shop choice in April.

You have all signed, and your parents have signed, the exploratory description sheet that outlines the 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.

Career and Educational Planning

Welcome to the Four-to-Six Year Educational/Career Plan!

Goal Setting: What can I do this year to plan for future success? Reaching any career goal takes a personal commitment. Developing goals means learning how to make decisions and then setting action plans. Even if you still have no idea which career is right for you, it is possible to begin some preparation. Goal setting is discussed at every career planning meeting:

Academic Goals/Technical Goals: Earn high grades to be competitive, research academic and technical programs and colleges, take required assessment exams (PSAT, SAT, ASVAB, Accuplacer), if needed, get help improving study habits, use agenda book, work on junior/senior project, and portfolio.

Personal/Social Goals: Sports, volunteer and community service activities, clubs, and hobbies.

Workplace Readiness Goals/Career Goals: Part-time or Summer Employment, research job opportunities, ask about cooperative education for next year (if applicable), review your technical competencies to make sure you are on track, update resume, organize letters and certificates re: community service and make list of who you will ask for recommendations.

Activities during the sophomore, junior, and senior years assist students in preparing to market themselves upon graduation to either employers, colleges, or the military. Sophomores are trained on the use of the www.kudernavigator.com website to develop an electronic-format portfolio. Information on career goals, skills and competencies, achieved activities, clubs, organizations and awards, work projects and writing samples are stored here.
