August 20-23 Welcome!

Welcome to Career Connections! This one-semester class is in the Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS or FACS) Department. Topics that may be covered are:

  • Successful Character Traits
  • Benefits of Networking
  • Business Letter
  • Job Applications
  • Appropriate Grooming and Attire for Work
  • Time Management
  • Résumé
  • Positive Work Attitude

Please check this blog weekly for updates. I highly encourage you to share your personal work experiences with your student. For example, when we discuss interviewing, discuss your interviewing experiences with your student. Share your mistakes (we all make them!) and successes. These discussions will make their classroom learning much more personal and meaningful. I'm looking forward to a wonderful semester in Career Connections!
