Have you ever wondered what kind of job you want when you grow up? Or what college do you want to attend? These are common worries among maturing middle/high schoolers. You may also feel like you have to figure out your life by yourself, and that no course can help you. Correction, there is a course that can help you. It’s the amazing Career and Research Skills Elective!
This is a high school course (which is also available for middle schoolers) that will break down all the components of attending a university, writing a resume, and tips for getting into a good college. What students love about this course is that it first starts with finding your true inner self and courage, then perseverance in what you love, and lastly it teaches you how to hit the bullseye so you get the job or get into the college that you want to attend. To answer some of my questions, I sat down with Mr. Corum (the instructor of this course), and here’s what we discussed:
1. For People New to this Course, What’s Your Biggest Advice?
Focus on what the course is trying to teach you, rather than focusing on getting it done. You will discover a lot of good tips and tricks if you take your time.
2. What Level of Learning Is this Course?
This is a high school course, but don’t worry, many people have passed this course with good grades.
3. Lastly, Do I Need To Have a Plan for When I’m Going to Get Work Done, or Can I Just Wing It?
As usual, a good pace is three lessons per week, but I would say to take your time and again focus on what the course is trying to teach you. This course may only help your GPA now, but the tips and tricks will help you later for your whole lifetime.
