Eighth grade students enjoyed a guest presentation with our school counselor Mrs. Alderman and with Ms. Jeannette Maurice from Starved Rock Associates for Vocational and Technical Education. They were introduced to the website Career Cruising and spent time completing career interest inventories and choosing their favorite careers to research. Through researching their chosen careers, students learned not only about the job duties, but also about high school courses they would need to take, colleges and technical/trade schools that offer a major related to their chosen careers, requirements for admission, costs of colleges and technical/trade schools, as well as potential income for their given career. Students can continue to access their accounts on Career Cruising as often as they like!
