CA Career Cafe- new counseling resource
A new CA Career Café website has been launched. This is a web-based resource for students, developed by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office. The CA Career Cafe is ready to share with students in counseling sessions and in counseling classes.
This website has a very user friendly visual layout. Many of the materials include links to careers centers at UCLA, UC Berkeley and Stanford. Here is a brief overview:
Section 1: GET STARTED (http://www.cacareercafe.com/get-started/) to uncover who they are and where they want to be. Self assessments cover the following areas:
- Identify your strengths, talents and passions.
- Define and match your personality to careers.
- Capitalize on your learning style.
- Focus on your goals.
Section 2: GET A PATHWAY (http://www.cacareercafe.com/pathways/) helps students to explore California’s 15 industry sectors.
Section 3: GET EXPERIENCE (http://www.cacareercafe.com/get-experience/) is to practice and build workplace skills.
Section 4: GET HIRED (http://www.cacareercafe.com/get-hired/) includes specific steps to find a job.
There are also HOT CAREER TIPS (http://www.cacareercafe.com/hot-tips/) to encourage students do little things to make a big difference (There are a total of short120 tips ) and COOL CONNECTIONS (http://www.cacareercafe.com/cool-connections/) to make helpful career contacts.
I look forward to hearing what you think about this resource!
