Ohio Means Jobs

Course Description:

The Career Research class at Ironton High School is designed to introduce the career development process to students. The process includes self-awareness, career awareness, career exploration, and career preparation.

Students will personalize the career development process by integrating information from their academic and career assessments to make informed planning decisions for careers and education and/or training beyond high school.

Students enrolled in this course are given a variety of career-related assessments to help them become aware of their career preferences. Data from these assessments will assist students in creating a "self-study" from which they can begin to formulate education and career goals.

Students will prepare a portfolio containing items necessary for the competition of seeking a career.

Student Success Plan

A Student Success Plan is one component of the Career Connections K-12 Framework. This outline provides an example of the supports, services, tools and activities that comprise a comprehensive career development experience for students. It can serve as a model for staff when developing Student Success Plans with students.

Note that this outline is not exhaustive and other curricula and services are required. Inpidual student readiness should be considered when determining the most appropriate age or grade for each respective component of this outline. Leveraging an online career planning tool to document activities and experiences, such as OhioMeansJobs K-12, is highly recommended.
