Career Exploration Workshop

8th graders visit NECC on Jan. 18

By Harding, Lori

January 18, 2018

The eighth grade class attended a Career Exploration Workshop at NECC on
Thursday, January 18. The day was very educational. Students learned more
about how their interests can be a part of their future careers. It was very
interesting to view the results of the CAPS/COPS/COPES tests that all 8th
graders took at school in early January. The break-out activities were fascinating.
Exploring careers through the O*NET Online website opened students’ eyes to
countless career opportunities. The budgeting activity opened their eyes to what
the “real world” could look like and helped them realize that spending habits need
to be adjusted according to income. Following the workshop, a NECC student
took 8th graders on a brief tour of the campus. Students enjoyed the tour and are
excited to visit NECC’s campus again. Overall, it was a very interesting,
educational, and fun day! The testing and workshop are activities 8th grade
students participate in as part of the Career Development class taught by Mrs.
Harding, school counselor.
