Career Odyssey is a board game designed to help students explore careers that may be good matches for their talents and interests. Students develop insight into their own talents and interests and then try to match them to various careers.
Players fill out a brief “Talents and Interests” card that asks then to select two talents out of six that are most descriptive of themselves. The talents are based on Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, but the names are simplified. Players also specify work preferences, such as working mostly alone or mostly with others.
