Chapter 1: Getting Ready : Chapter 1: Getting Ready Chapter 1: Getting Ready : Jobs are constantly changing. What was true years ago regarding the types of jobs that are available may no longer be the case today. On average, workers change jobs about seven times during their careers. Nearly 80% of jobs require some sort of post-secondary training. These jobs tend to be better paying than those that do not! Manufacturing has changed, with high-paying, high skill jobs now the norm. Skilled jobs requiring less than a bachelor’s degree comprise almost half of today’s job market. Employers want workers who possess “people skills” and who will fit into their organization. Chapter 1: Getting Ready Chapter 1: Getting Ready : Chapter 1: Getting Ready Scheduling for your upcoming year is very important as institutions will be looking at schedules to see if students continue on a college preparatory track. Students are encouraged to register for a challenging course-load as it may make the difference in the admission decision. Event Month Distribution of the Program of Studies January Classroom Subject Area Discussions Early February Curriculum Night February 3 Online Scheduling Window Early Feb- March Chapter 1: Getting Ready : Chapter 1: Getting Ready Post-secondary institutions may use a variety of resources to learn about who your are. Please be aware of how you may be represented online. It is not unusual for colleges to do a search for your name on Google, MySpace, Facebook, and other public sites. Be sure to represent yourself in a manner that will not affect the possibility of your acceptance. Be sure that your email address will not hurt your chances for admission. Many schools ask you to provide this and you don’t want a joke to cost you admission. (Example: Indicating an email like “[email protected]” may not endear yourself to the admission committee.)
