During my minute meetings with my students, one of the questions is "do you know what you want to be when you grow up" which gets all types of responses (by the way my favorite response was "mermaid" from a 1st grader). So I have a cool website to share with you to use as you plan ways to expose your students to different careers.
Career Sighted is a website that shows short 3 minute video clips of real life people and their careers, think the Occupational Outlook Book put into video form. I love how the videos show and tell what to expect in the job, working conditions, education, etc (covers all the basics).
This could be used in career cafe groups or in classroom lessons followed by discussion. Just the exposure of various careers would be quite beneficial to our students and give them several career options to think about.
How do you share various careers to your students?
