Saskatchewan students have a new amazing career exploration site specific to this province at www.saskcareers.ca.
This excellent website provides an opportunity for students to create a log in so their information will be saved. Students can do eight different inventories to help determine what types of careers would suit them. The site provides a guided resume builder. An occupation search engine shows a multitude of jobs available to Saskatchewan residents including a job description, Saskatchewan average wage, future prospects, what the job is like and where to go for post-secondary training and schooling. The website also connects with local employers. It is recommended that students and parents access this website as they look ahead to the future.
We also have access to the Career Cruising site for student exploration of careers. See Mrs. Bayne for the username and password.
Check with Mrs. Bayne regarding course requirements for completing grade 12 as well as scholarships and enrollment to post-secondary courses. All students in grades 10, 11 and 12 should arrange a visit to ensure that the courses they choose to take will meet the grade 12 requirements and enable them to enter post-secondary institutions.
