The workforce is a very competitive place. To succeed, you need to know where you are going and get there before your competition. In other words, you need a plan. The Work Room has developed a 5 step plan called PACE (Plan to Achieve Career Excellence) to help you research, build and maintain your career plan.

Don’t follow the crowd….set your own PACE!

      Program Highlights

     Step1: Identify Interests. One of the best predictors of long term happiness and success
                    in your career is to make sure it is compatible with your interests, personality, skill sets, 
                                   and your goals in life. This step is commonly overlooked, but is arguably the most

  Step 2: Research. Once you have identified your interests, you will want to match those
    interests to opportunities in the workforce. There is a ton of career information 
    available, but it is useless if a person cannot access the information they need or know
                                   how to apply it to their advantage. This leads us to the next step..

    Step 3: The Action Plan. Whether you are a recent high school graduate or are currently
                                   working but need a career change, you  have 6 options available to you to put your career
                                   plan into action. Which option is the best one for you? 

   Step 4: Employability Skills.  Have you ever noticed how some people seem to have an
     easier time getting hired than others? Why do some people get promoted to the best jobs
                                   and the receive all the company perks? Practice and hone the employability skills in this
                                   step and you will be one of those people.

    Step 5: The Job Search. Tips, strategies and tools to help you land the job of your dreams.

Students making a transition from school-to-work

One's career path is one of the biggest decisions students make as they are preparing to graduate from high school.  Sadly many base their decisions on very little research and rely on influences that may not be compatible with their career ambitions. The student version of PACE is designed to help students identify their interests and develop a career plan around what they want to accomplish in their lives.

      and that are important to me."

Parents wishing to act as a career coach for their children

Research has shown that parents are the number 1 influence on the career decisions made by  graduating high school students. This can create a dilemma for parents who do not feel they have the information and resources to act as a "career coach". A 60 minute parent workshop and workbook are available to provide parent s with the resource tools and strategies they need to support the career goals of their children.
