Secondly
• Doing academic and career planning: tips to
note
Career Choice
• Interest
• Mentorship
• Exploring internship and volunteering
• Networking
• Research (find out about it)
- Allison Cheston (2012)
Back to Genesis
• Recognise God
• Locate yourself in His Word/will
(Psalm119:105, Joshua 1:8)
• Identify what gives you joy as a child of God
• Grow in it (Prov4:18)
Career choice: Steps to
take
• According to the Chameleon Video Scribes
and Whiteboard Animation (2015) the
following tools are needed:
• 1. Mirror
• 2. Compass
• 3. Map
• 4. Vehicle
Mirror (Who am I?)
What
interests
me?
What
am I
good
at?
How am I
unique/differe
nt from
others?
Compass (What do I want to do?)
What Industry am I
interested in?
What jobs are available
for me in the future?
How much can I expect
to earn from the career?
Map (How do I get there?)
What courses should I be
taking to position me for
success?
What work/services
experience will give me
exposure and teach me the
skills I need?
What type of education do
I need after High School?
What are the admission
requirements and how much
will it cost me?
Vehicle (Go!)
Your destinations, ways
and time to get there are
all unique
Either go direct, look
around learning different
things or trying different
options, just GO!
