CLASS CONTENT

This course has three components:

  1. Self-understanding: Evaluate your skills, strengths, interests, values, etc.
  2. Career Exploration: Research your options for satisfying career opportunities.
  3. Decision-making: Create a workable personal career plan.

 

CLASS STRUCTURE

While this is an online class, it is not totally self-paced. We will go through the material together, with weekly readings, assignments, and online discussions. (You can do the work anytime during the week.)

 

ORIENTATION MEETING

There is a mandatory on-campus orientation meeting for each class. Section 97060 is January 2, and Section 97061 is on March 27. Both are 6:30-8:00 pm, in Room 1051 (the "Electronic Classroom" upstairs in the Cabrillo Library). This is the only in-person meeting for the class. All other activities are online only. The purposes of this class meeting are to get acquainted, review all course requirements, get hands-on experience with the online course environment you'll be using, and complete your initial assignments.
