Begin a discussion with your class to find out where your students are with regard to their career choices. For those who have decided, ask why they picked that field. To include those who haven’t decided on a career, ask the class to think about members of their families and the attitudes they have toward their work. Ask students what they think of those attitudes. Do they think those family members made good career choices? Why or why not? This discussion will get students thinking about their attitudes regarding different careers, as well as about matching their interests with their career choices. Try to highlight the fact that they do have choices. Today’s students can not only choose their careers but can also change their careers later in life if they so desire.
