  6. 6.  Build and implement a sample of lockers in the school (One grade? One physical area?)  Students use test lockers and keep diary of experience  Designers observe students user lockers on at least two occasions  Administrators write weekly report about their experience/observation  Revise design based of field test
  7. 7.  Fairy godmother grants wish for the perfect job  Magically fly to various locations for job opportunities to become a “local candidate”  Mind control over search committee/hiring manager to hire stakeholder  Super Searchbot that searched website and found every opportunity related to skill set, found the positions, and submitted applications and kept a running record of position, response. Sends daily updates
  8. 8.  List your interests, values, talents, and skills  Define your unique talents and skills – develop a list of keywords  Visualize an ”ideal job” including:  Location  Hours of work  The people you work with  The way you manage  The way you are managed  The skills you use  Challenges  Values  Culture  Plug in keywords to onetcenter.org to see what careers are applicable – create a career list
  9. 9.  Online job tests to help narrow search, identify careers  Apply those talents and skills to career sites such as http://www.mypursuit.com/ and http://www.onetcenter.org/  Using interests list and resources found on career sites, list some alternative careers to hire education in addition to Higher Ed jobs  Ask people for their ideas, advice – show them your career ideas and get their feedback  Slip out the back, Jack  Make a new plan, Pam  You don't need to be Coy, Joy; Just listen to me  Hop on the bus, Gus; You don't need to discuss much  Just drop off the key, Leigh  And get yourself free!
  10. 10.  Define your unique talents and skills – develop a list of keywords  Plug in keywords to onetcenter.org to see what careers are applicable – create a career list I think these go hand in hand: the brainstorming and creative process, and then having a tool to help implement the ideas and work towards a solution.
  11. 11. Wear a sandwich board stating your and stand in public places, near colleges, near places of business where you want to work. I think this strategy requires a giant step outside the comfort zone. It requires a lot of courage and overcoming limiting emotions:  Fear of exposure (physical/emotional)  Embarrassment  Feeling desperate
  12. 12.  Fairy godmother grants wish for the perfect job In addition to the fairy godmother’s wish granting, completing some of the other tasks, such as define your unique talents and skills – develop a list of keywords, and then visualizing the ideal job are important to specify that perfect job!
