This lesson marks the beginning of the students career discovery phase. We are going to be taking a deeper dive into the careers students had selected in Stage 3 Lesson 2 Activity 2 – The Pursuit of Interests. Remind students of the journey they have taken so far; discovered their strengths/weaknesses, interests, skills/talents and desired lifestyles. It is now time for them to begin the process of using all that information to dive deeper into careers that will provide them with their lifestyle of choice. Explain that this is not a black and white process, but rather a guideline that will help students decide if they’re heading in the right direction. 

Assign the Career Selection Activity. 

  1. Students should reference their assignment from Stage 3 Lesson 2 Activity 2 – The Pursuit of Interests and write down  the careers they had selected in that activity. 
  2. Instruct students to use the FYG Careers page on the website or app. Ask them to look at the careers that relate to their top 3 lifestyles, which can be found in Stage 2 Lesson 1 Activity 2 – Focused Lifestyles. From here, students should list out any of those careers that they are interested in. 
  3. Get students to narrow down their lengthy list to about 5-8 careers. Identifying if there is any overlap in the careers they selected in their activity and the ones linked to their lifestyle.
