“As an educator, I am always pleased to find teaching materials that are creative, enticing, and useful! Whether used as a package or individually, these career exploration products present an array of relevant ideas that can easily be transformed into a ready-made unit.
What impressed me further is that the information included is current and the activities are created to appeal to all learning styles and intelligences….a gift for teachers and students alike.”

It is wonderful to see encouragement for a wide variety of skills! And to have materials and a great story which show that there many career opportunities out there and that they do not ALL underscore an A+ average and terrific SAT scores! You show that a child not only CAN succeed in an interesting career by following her heart, but that she should do just exactly that.

Parents, do you want to help your child think about how her interests might develop into a future career? Teachers, would you like for your students to learn some practical lessons that will make a huge difference in their lives? Grow Up. Get a Job. is a career exploration workbook filled with activities and exercises for young people.
According to the publishers, this workbook supports the American School Counselor Association’s National Standards for Career Development, the National Council of Teachers of English’s Standards for the English Language Arts, and the National Career Development Guidelines Framework. The cover states that it is “adaptable for various ages & skill levels.” I would recommend it for older elementary through middle school students.
The book provides a good framework for discussion of the many career opportunities available. Of course, in a 62-page workbook, it would be impossible to thoroughly describe all available career opportunities. The student must have access to internet or library resources to supplement the text. The exercises require the student to answer questions about interests and abilities, but do not provide recommendations, as an interest inventory would do. The student must reach his own conclusions about what jobs he might enjoy and be able to do.
Parents and teachers who want a starting point, allowing the student plenty of lattitude to explore on his own, will appreciate the open-ended activities in Grow Up. Get A Job.

Finally a workbook for kids to help them find out who they really want to be when they grow up! Having raised four children I think it’s extremely important to guide them in the right direction. If I had this work book five years ago, my daughter would not be struggling with ‘who she wants to be when she grows up’ in her last year of college. This handbook should be used by all educators, therapists and school districts.
