These resources help counselors, adult educators, high school instructors, and other professionals who support students and low-literacy adults in job search and planning for education and careers. Use the information provided here to develop curriculum and self-guided tools.
Before using these facilitator resources, assess which audience group your students or customers belong to at MyMnCareers Audience.
Many low-skilled adult students or job seekers don't see the relevance of goal setting. They don't always understand how goal-setting affects every aspect of their lives, not just their job or education.
Many students and customers know all too well what they can't do. MyMnCareers was designed to help them figure out what they already are able to do well, what they enjoy doing, and how these things can lead to career success.
This page of links lists common assessment tools used by facilitators who support lower literacy students and program participants.
These online clips include real-life examples and instruction for students and adults seeking to learn effective job search skills.
These audio clips tell the story of six Adult Basic Education students as they earn their GEDs or find a career path.
