Introduction

It is a common problem for students to not know what they want to do in their future. A student leaves high school with no real idea of where they want to go or what they want to do which causes alot of wasted time and money. In completing this mini-course students may not know exactly what they want to do in the future but what things effect their choices. We live in a time that is in constant change and that includes the career field, we as teachers are training students for jobs that do not yet exist, we need to prepare them for anything.
