We are going to continue building on our career research by looking into potential employers. The purpose of this activity is to see what kind of companies the students would be working for and if they connect with the purpose and atmosphere of those companies. This links back to our ideas of personal/brand identities and whether or not these align.
Assign the Match the Identities activity. Students will find 3-5 companies currently hiring for each of the careers they’ve selected, find their mission statements and decide on a scale of 1-10 if they think they would be a good fit.
We want to take this a step further and have students think of the world 8-10 years from now (Roughly when they would graduate, depending on their age), do they believe these jobs will be around in that time? The world is constantly changing and we need to think ahead in order to ensure success.
