ACADEMIC AND CAREER ADVISING
with Rebecca Corcoran, Augusta Adult and Community Education
This course will prepare students for post secondary education and the workplace. It covers interest inventories, learning styles, and personality preferences, self-evaluations of work abilities and skill toward career pathways. Recognizing and overcoming barriers to college and the workplace will be discussed as well as development of appropriate attitudes, time management, organizational skills, conflict resolution, and work ethics. College placement testing, college tours, navigating a college campus or career site, interviewing skills and applications for college and work will be covered, along with resumes, and doing on-line applications. We will address the soft skills one needs to get and keep a job or stay in school.
