As part of the Skills for Life CTE Series, Career Explorations prepares students to forge their own path towards career success by introducing them to key concepts in employability skills, education and training, the job application process, and more. This comprehensive textbook guides students in understanding the vast landscape of the modern working world. Students will explore a range of career options in each of the 16 Career Clusters and develop an understanding of their own interests and abilities on their way to pursuing a career suited to their unique passions.
Across a series of hands-on computer applications projects, students will also create a comprehensive career portfolio featuring a resume, cover letter, interest inventory, and much more. These real-world projects challenge students to apply their knowledge of careers by using word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and more to produce documents showcasing both their professionalism and their computer applications skills.
