A. I’m Jason Boylan and I’ve been in
the workforce for about 14 years. I was laid off from the auto sector and now I’m
in the Second Career program. When I was fired, I felt like I was a little bit
lost and scared to make a step in my life. I heard about the Second Career
program at the assessment centre in our local community. I chose Culinary
Management because there are a lot of jobs created from the culinary
department. After graduating from Fleming
College, I have a long
term goal to either owning my own restaurant or becoming an executive chef
somewhere - which has always been a dream of mine to do. The Second Career
program has made it very comfortable for me to go to that next step.
you can make a career choice you have to learn about yourself. Your values, interests and skills, in combination with
certain personality traits, will make some careers especially
suitable for you and some particularly unsuitable. You can use career tests, to generate a list of occupations
that are deemed appropriate. Some people choose to have career counselors or other career development
professionals check these tests but many try to use free career tests that are
available on the Web.
C. The United States Bureau of Labor
Statistics regularly publishes articles in the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Each article contains information
regarding the nature of the work, working conditions, employment outlook,
education and training, and earnings for that occupation. A solid educational
foundation is important, although, according to the Occupational Outlook
Handbook, it is not
as important as experience especially in such professions as actors. However,
even actors with well established careers polish their skills in acting classes
with other professionals. Dancers spend many hours in training as do
D. A survey by the TUC found that employees in small
businesses are more satisfied at work. They were also found to
be the most committed and loyal to their organisations. They also felt most
engaged by their employer and had the most freedom to choose their working
patterns. There were far fewer reports of bullying, lower stress levels
complaints about long working hours. The Chairman of the
Federation of Small Businesses said ‘In terms of the way they treat their
staff, small businesses consistently out perform their bigger competitors.
Small business owners know that the greatest asset is their staff and they are
more likely to treat them as individuals and recognize their needs. By having a
committed and loyal workforce the smallest business has a bigger advantage.
E. I have enjoyed learning how to sell myself, tapping into my skills, I
previously was unaware, were so important to future employers. Also, developing
a greater understanding of what the employers want to see and hear on a CV and
during an interview has given me confidence. I feel that the relaxed nature of
this course to do assignments and quizzes at your own leisure makes this module
very appealing as both a learning process and personal development. I also like
the idea that anyone can do it alongside their degree, even in final year when
employment possibilities really are at the forefront of our minds.
graduate had been trying to get into investment
but without success and had exhausted all the normal routes. As a last resort,
he had 100 postcard-sized CVs printed. He then went round the "Square Mile” in
the City, where all the main financial organizations in London are located and proceeded to place one
of these CVs under the windscreen of every Rolls Royce and top of the range BMW
and Mercedes he came across. Next day, he had several phone calls offering him
interviews from the senior executives whom the cars belonged to. Note that we
are not advocating this approach: one graduate jobseeker put up 200 poster
sized CVs around Hull
and ended up being fined for bill posting!
you begin the journey of choosing a career, you may be surprised to discover
the ill effects of negative childhood experiences coloring your decision-making
process. Tragic situations during childhood, such as extreme poverty, death, and
other traumatic events affect individuals at the chemical level, strongly
influencing their overall health and their choices as adults. They may believe their
options are limited to careers that have no prestige or that they will be stuck
in the same career forever, according to the Career Development
Center. Young adults who
are at the effect of traumatic childhood life events may believe they are not
allowed to fail and, if they do, there is no chance of succeeding in another

find the best course of action.
Jeff Statham: We have two kids at home that we
