Overview - CAREER FOLIO SAMPLER SET
Provide Career Preparation and Awareness for Transitioning Students.
PCI's Career Folio is a reproducible curriculum that contains everything teachers need to organize relevant career facts into one meaningful whole for their students, including reproducible blackline masters to help students organize their own Career Folios. It serves as both a career awareness program and career portfolio to be used in actual job searches during and after high school.
Each component of this well-organized, easy-to-use sampler is indispensable for preparing students for their future in the workplace. It provides a guided format for students to explore their thoughts and desires, plan seriously for their futures, and analyze their abilities as related to the working world.
