What is Career Planning?
Career planning is a unique life long process for each person. Your Career Practitioner will work with you to learn more about how your interests, skills, values and personality impact your choice of career direction. It is an active process that students begin in their Career and Life Management class and continues with meetings with your Career Practitioner and your Student Services counselor. You will be making career decisions throughout your life.

Does the Career Centre offer Career Tests and Assessments?
Any “career tests” are tools for students to learn more about themselves and potential careers that may be of interest to them. The “tests” are designed to provide career suggestions for exploration but there is no test that will tell a student what they should as a career. The goal is for the students to learn as much as they can about themselves and the careers that are available so they themselves can make an informed decision about their first step after high school.

Will the Career Practitioner find me a job?
We do everything we can to give students the tools to find their own jobs. That may mean assisting them with upgrading their resume and cover letter, doing practice job interviews with them and talking about job-search skills.

Can I get High School credits for my part-time job or volunteer work?
Yes, you can! You must see Ms. Hunt, Work Experience teacher.
