The Career Center is the focal area for a well-planned four year career development program that prepares all Northeast students for their individually chosen career paths. The curriculum focuses on career assessment; career information and requirements; interviewing skills; portfolios; and resume preparation. By providing assessments to evaluate skills, interests, and work values, counselors assist freshmen in their vocational selection process and upper class students with linkages to post-secondary education and employment opportunities. Counselors provide specialized support to those students who are enrolled in career areas that are considered non-traditional choices and to appropriately handle any difficulties that they might confront.
The Career Instructor presents curriculum in the areas of entrepreneurship and employability throughout grades 10, 11, and 12 in the Related Theory classes. These competencies are required by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
All students go through the Career Center to help with their career choices throughout high school. One of our goals is for students to develop career pathways that allow them to achieve their career goals. The kudernavigator.com website is used all four years for career research, job searching, resume writing, college planning, and is an important part of this process. Students work on a yearly career plan to make sure that they explore their careers fully and have knowledge of the opportunities and career paths for after graduation.
