Nothing is served in silver

Take your time, pray for it.

occupations of the persons
observed by your group?

these people in terms of beliefs,
attitudes and skills that were
observed in their workplace?

observed in the workplace?
Info-Bits

• First hand information can be a very rich source of


information.
• It is the information (the beliefs, attitudes and skills)
and success stories that you get from the people
whom you want to be in the future could make you
more enthusiastic in pursuing your goals.
• This is also called observational learning.
• By shadowing a person or the “More
Knowledgeable Other” or MKO (Vygotsky, 2014)
in his place of work and by asking pertinent
questions it is believed that these new
information will help you in cementing your
decisions to pursue your chosen career.
• Informational observation also strengthens the claim
of the creative job hunting principle (Woodcock,
2014) where it says that the best way to choose a
career is to talk to people doing the job.
• There is a lot of truth in the statement that you don’t
really know what it’s like until you have been doing it
for a while.
• The idea of the observation is to promote
learning context where you play an active role
and become responsible for your own learning.
• Choosing the right course is a big decision and
it is important to get it right, as it can impact
future success.
• Career awareness and self-awareness go
hand-in-hand.
• As Stephen Covey says from his
famous book The 7 Habits of
Highly Effective People, Begin
with the end in mind.
• You visualize what you wanted
to become and you are already
on you first step of achieving
your goals.
Time to move
forward and craft a
Career Road map
Crafting A Career Road Map
What is a Career Road Map?

• According to an article by Cao


(2013) a career road map outlines
specific steps to undertake for
moving from one step to another in
ways that will facilitate growth and
career advancement.
• This could be an illustration or
diagram that could easily be
understood by the individual who
crafted it.
Career road maps are flexible
enough and could be revisited
and revised over time or as the
circumstance warrants in order
for you to keep track of your
progress or to address issues
that hinders the achievement of
your goals.
The career road map, upon
accomplishing should be
communicated to
parents/guardians or significant
people whom you think in one way
or the other will be involved in the
attainment of the desired goal.
Here is a sample template of a career road
map.
