Career Development Programs

Whether you work with groups of people or you are looking for a tool that can be used by the individual, Road to Success offers a Career Development Program that will work for you. The RTS philosophy incorporates self awareness, soft skills and building on strengths.

Each participant will become more self aware through the Road to Success discovery process of identifying interests, skills and values, areas of strengths and areas to be improved; will complete a personal career exploration process; and will have opportunities to prepare for the future through the development of soft skills and learning methods to make informed career choices for successful job/career search or continued education.

Student Career Development Workbooks for the Individual User

This series of three workbooks offers a comprehensive, self-paced approach to career development. Each student will use her/his workbook to build a career document that will be a resource for her/his career exploration, career planning and achievement of career goals - both short and long term.

Students identify their personal strengths and use that knowledge to develop and take responsibility for their career plan. The career plan includes planning for continuing education/training or finding a job. By completing the activities found in this series, students will build a foundation for career goal development which leads to informed decisions and more focused and successful and satisfying career/job experiences.

Students will use tools and assessments, reflection and other targeted exercises, research techniques including computer skills, and they will develop career plans and action steps.

The workbooks are:

No Stress Career Development for Teens, Self Discovery

No Stress Career Development for Teens, Career Exploration

No Stress Career Development for Teens, Career Preparation

Each workbook has a corresponding Parent Guide available for purchase. The Parent Guides include a "Quick Start Guide" with a recommended week-by-week approach to completing the workbooks and a list of resources on subjects covered. Click here for more information or to purchase materials.
