Have you ever been to a party, restaurant or buffet where you felt so overwhelmed by all of the incredible choices you simply had no idea where to begin? Do you have a favorite store like Bass Pro, Apple, Nordstrom or Barnes and Noble filled with those things you love to browse? Do you usually begin your meandering through that place with a plan that includes some random wandering coupled with a distinct methodology so you don’t miss anything?
That’s how I feel about the new Highlands Ability Battery Career Exploration tool. It is so incredibly awesome! When you take the assessment, your data gets linked to careers that are a good match for your natural abilities and provides an amazing array of opportunities to be explored. That array includes everything from careers right out of high school to careers requiring a PhD. Perhaps you want a career with hands-on experiences but you don’t want 4 years of college, what’s available and a good match?
In my career as an educator I have watched the educational pendulum swing from promoting vocational education to dismantling vocational programs and promoting college for everyone. Now we hear STEM, STEAM and all the hype of the pendulum swinging yet again. The reality is that neither vocational training nor college education is for everyone, but everyone has a place and everyone needs to be prepared to take the next step. But it requires purposeful thinking and purposeful actions.
Having a career or multiple careers that you truly enjoy is so incredibly awesome. Are you ready to take the next step? Contact me.
