Do You Teach Them to Jump In?

By | 6:23 PM 2 comments

It's the summer and we are enjoying every relaxing minute of it!  The boys are jumping in feet first to the pool at least once a day (weather permitting) and I love getting some much needed rest and relaxation.

All of this pool jumping got me to thinking about the students at school.  I know, even though it is summer I can't stop thinking about them!  When it comes to talking to kids about Careers do you encourage them to jump in?  I know that when I first started as a high school counselor I was very cautious and tried to make sure I wasn't stepping on toes.  The older I am the more I have found that it is easier to encourage them to jump right in and experience internships early on so that they can make more informed decisions when they are older.  The struggle I am finding is the time factor.  The reality is that most 9th graders do not have the time or resources to devote to an internship.

So, what do we do?  I would love to know what you use to expose the younger generation to careers in a real world way.  We do have the occasional Career Day, but I would love even more.  I think it would be great if we could find time in our busy school schedules to allow even 1 excused day from school where a student can shadow a job of his or her choosing.  How much fun!

What have you done in the past that has worked?
