CAREER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IN THE AGE OF DISRUPTION
|One of the vital developmental tasks that an individual face during adolescence are the task of choosing a career. Adolescents who are also now called the "Digital Natives" lives in a very complex world due to fast moving life that they are experiencing brought about by technology and globalization. Arriving at a career fitted for the youth will be a very difficult task for them if they are not equipped and prepared for it. The main purpose of the workshop is to inform and assist the guidance counselors, career advocates and other helping professionals to formulate a sound plan of action through comprehensive assessment tools and programs in this age of disruption in order to better fulfill effective career goals and objectives for their students' personal, academic and career development aligned with the 21st century soft skills and new career paradigms. Thus, it is the hope of this workshop to impart valuable information regarding career programs that will effectively guide the counselors and other helping professionals in assisting the digital youth to have a better and fulfilling career life.|
