Studies show that students who enter college or post-secondary training with a career focus are twice as likely to graduate and successfully transition to work that matches their education and training. The Career Choices series curriculum helps students become career-focused and career-committed while they learn how to make effective decisions about the future.
The plans students develop in their Career Choices series course leave them feeling motivated. Revisiting and revising those plans helps to maintain the momentum started by this course. The more opportunities students have to rethink and rework their plans, the more meaningful the plans become and the more comfortable students will be making decisions that involve change—which is a crucial 21st century workforce survival skill.
The best guidance is built on relevant information rather than broad generalizations. My10yearPlan.com® allows for on-demand access to quantitative information about each student and their unique education and career goals, giving instructors, counselors, and advisors to formulate advice that addresses students’ identifiable goals.
The Career Choices series does not ask students to make final, lifelong career choices. Instead, students are exposed to––and get to practice––sophisticated goal setting, decision-making, and planning techniques and strategies that can be used throughout their lives. Each time they revisit their online 10-year Plan, what they've learned is reinforced and becomes more engrained.
When students complete a course with the Career Choices series curriculum, they examine and answer three critical developmental questions: Who am I? What do I want? and How do I get it? This process supports the development of core social-emotional skills, provides opportunities to practice a variety of self-mastery skills, and empowers students to envision a life that matches their goals, dreams, and aspirations for the future.
When changing industries, globalization, and technological advancements mean the vast majority of jobs no longer provide long-term stability, knowing how to navigate the ever-changing world of work is a critical life skill. Those who fail to adapt to the realities of the 21st-century workplace could be condemned to subsistence living. The Career Choices series curriculum and My10yearPlan.com® help students map their own plan for acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to achieve their own personal level of success.
