The Twitter #firstsevenjobs is trending this week. It is so interesting to see the road others took to their career. Wouldn’t this also be interesting to your students? You could show celebrities #firstsevenjobs to start a career lesson!
Or ask your staff for their first seven jobs. Ironically, we did something similar to kick off our junior career and college lesson.
We played a kind of guessing game to see who did these jobs before arriving at their current job. We would reveal the first job….guess who?
Then slowly show each job. Until the staff member was revealed!
Surprise, it’s your principal! We picked 3 brave staff members for this opening activity.
The students really connected with this opening activity and were able to see the many diverse paths you can take before arriving in a career. Here is the entire presentation:
And here is a link to where you can find the Junior Packet.
What are some other ways you can use #firstsevenjobs in your school counseling program?
