Eight days to my Career Action Plan

This is what I’m doing for the next eight days:

COPE (Career Orientation Pathways for Employment)

The COPE (Career Orientation Pathways for Employment) Workshop is an interactive 8 day Career Decision Making Workshop to assist participants in determining the next “step” of their career pathway.

Participants have the opportunity for hands-on career exploration in
relation to current labour market info/trends and self discovery.
Each participant creates a Personal Profile through vocational
assessments. As well participants are provided with the tools to conduct
effective occupational and labour market research, and learn to conduct
effective informational research exploring current labour market trends.
In combining these elements, participants create their own COPE Career
Action Plan, which focuses on moving forward with positive and realistic
goals and actions.

Discover your talents!
Uncover your potential!
Set your Career Path!
Our services are FREE to ALL unemployed individuals!
We’re here for YOU every step of the way!

The description gets a little manic towards the end there with all those exclamation points and capitalized words, but I’m optimistic that the program will be better than the blurb.

Either way, I’ll be sure to let you know…

  • I remember taking a course similar to this when I graduated college with an English degree and no clue what to do with it. It was called ACE (Action for Career Employment). I didn’t question the title. It was all about what you were suited for and how to dress for interviews and how to get jobs. It must have worked. A few weeks later, I happened to be talking to a man whose son played little league with my brother and he was looking to hire and he hired me. Kismet.

    I want some action in my career, too! If you find out you’re destined to be a princess or something important like that, can I be your royal cat groomer or something?

  • Gillian

    I hope they know you’re a blogger. And I hope you find what you want with lots of room for your creative spirit and open-minded attitude. The employer will have someone amazing.

  • This sounds like such a great opportunity. You have so much talent that I hope you discover something that takes full advantage of it.

  • Julia

    I am hopeful but skeptical. I really want to know how this turns out for you.

  • Donna Lee, I hope things fall into place like that for me!

    XUP, can you groom cats?? (If not, maybe I can hire you as a cook, or an out-loud-reader or something)

    Gillian, thank you very much. That’s such a nice thing to say.

    Finola, I’m hoping too to find something that is a good match for me – I’m willing to take a big cut in pay for the right career.

    Julia, I will definitely let you know.
