Edward R. Martin Middle School Library: 8th Grade Career Research Project

8th Grade Career Research Project

It's never too early to start thinking about your future. This 8th grade career research project includes surveys that will help the student identify likes/dislikes, strengths/abilities, and other personality characteristics that can help identify career options. Students will select a career, research that career and make a presentation. In addition, students will create a resume, apply for a job, and interview for that job. The links below will guide you through the surveys at WayToGo.org as well as connect you with websites for your research.
