  • Key resources Pathway to Prosperity (2011) Across the Great Divide: Perspectives of CEOs and College Presidents on America's Higher Education and Skills Gap (2011) College Completion Toolkit, USDOE (2011) Are They Really Ready to Work? (2006)
  • Part of this problem can be attributed to the fact that most high school students put little effort into exploring what they want to do upon graduation, have little understanding or experience with the requirements of the work world, and have no action plan in place to prepare for their future, other than some plan to go to college. It's paradoxical that college bound students and their parents put lots of energy into selecting and gaining admission into college, but minimal thought and effort into selecting an occupation and learning the skills it will take to compete successfully in today's competitive global world. As a result many enter college with little direction, often require extra time to graduate, and most importantly, fail to hone critical workplace skills. John G. Bendt

  • Review of the growing US and international body of evidence of the educational, social, and economic value of career information and services that foster informed and considered career decisions . Educational Outcomes Improved preparation and participation in postsecondary education Better articulation among levels of education and between education and work Higher graduation and retention rates Social Benefits Higher levels of worker satisfaction and career retention Shorter path to primary labor market for young workers Lower incidence of work-related stress and depression Economic Consequences Higher incomes and increased tax revenues Lower rates and shorter periods of unemployment Increased worker productivity
  • Pathways to Prosperity Quoted from Page 28
  • The Six Basic Ideas of Holland’s Theory: 1. Most people can be classified as one of six personality types: Realistic (R), Investigative (I), Artistic (A), Social (S), Enterprising (E), and Conventional (C). 2. People of the same personality working together create an environment that fits their type. For example, Social types create a Social environment; 3. There are six basic types of environments: Realistic (R), Investigative (I), Artistic (A), Social (S), Enterprising (E), and Conventional (C); 4. People search for environments where they can use their skills and abilities and express their values and attitudes; 5. People who choose to study and work in an environment similar to their personality type are more likely to be successful and satisfied; and 6. How you act and feel depends to a large extent on your school or work environment.
