Greetings! Welcome to our technology and career exploration course. The purpose of the course is to prepare you to make great choices for your future and to build your technology skills.
It's not too early to begin thinking about your future and to start investigating your career options. The work you will do in this course is a first look at career possibilities and what might be suitable for you. By starting to identify your interests and talents and to discover the careers that match, you can begin to explore which careers could be a good choice for you as well as what educational courses might be appropriate for you to take in high school and what training or education you might need after high school.
You should revisit throughout high school the decisions you have made and which careers you are interested in exploring because your interests, skills and abilities will change and grow. Actually, picking a career is a lifetime process.
But, how do you start? How do you determine which careers fit you best? That's what this course is about.
