It can be really confusing – and scary! – to make big decisions that will affect the rest of your life. And choosing your subjects in high school is definitely one of those big decisions.
Stay calm and go online! That’s where you’ll find a unique interactive tool called Discover Your Career. DYC helps you uncover more about yourself, the world of work, and where and what to study to get you where you want to go.
What’s it all about?
You’ve reached the point in your education where you have to choose the subjects that will probably determine the rest of your life path. And you have no idea what to do.
Never fear! The Discover Your Career suite of online ‘conversational guides’ (or cogs) offers you a comprehensive and fun way to decide which direction to take when choosing your educational and, ultimately, your professional path. Dozens of career fields, hundreds of careers, over a thousand links and videos … even a section on being an entrepreneur! By the time you finish your journey, you’ll know all about yourself, which subjects you need to take and where to study to get you where you want to go!
Who’s behind it?
This one-of-a-kind coaching-style career guidance material has been developed by Cognician in partnership with educational psychologist Dr Lanette Hattingh, MD, of Brainwave Careers. The product is based on her popular Discover Your Career workbook, which has been used by thousands of high school learners throughout South Africa.
How does it work?
You’ll begin your virtual adventure by discovering your unique Interests, Personality and Thinking Style profiles. Armed with this in-depth knowledge, you’ll then soon be able to choose subjects and related career fields that are ideally suited to you, ensuring that you’re on the right track from day one when it comes to finding your way in life.
“Today meant having the right destination to see where I’m heading. This day has proven that to know your destination is important. It has given me the ability to take risks always think and act towards what you need.”
