Career Quest Project

Project Overview:

Students will explore the question: “How do I begin to choose a career that is the best fit for me?”  by researching various career fields. The project involves three parts. The first is to learn about aptitudes for different fields by taking an online Career Profile Survey and reflecting on the results. The second is to do extensive research on three different careers. The third part is to do a comparison paper of those three careers.

Project Objective:

The Academy of Business emphasizes career-readiness and helps prepare students for a career field of their choice. The purpose of the project is to have 10th-grade students begin thinking about their potential for professional careers that allow for upward mobility as opposed to minimum-wage jobs. This early exposure is to aid in academic motivation and preparedness throughout their high school career.
