Preface

The Career Guidance Manual has been developed to help teachers, guidance counselors, and
career advocates help senior high school students in preparing them for a career they would want
to pursue after senior high. The manual is composed of eight modules all taken up together to form
a handbook. The modules build up one after the other such that at the initial module, students are
presented with different career choices, slowly developing and intensifying in the next modules that
tackle the different factors affecting the fulfillment of a dream/goal, how to deal with these factors,
the preparations for equipping oneself with the skills required of a profession, including honing
one’s personal attributes and characteristics that are equally essential as the technical capabilities
when applying for work. As such, by the last module, the students would have been very confident
about the career he/she intends to undertake.

In order to sharpen these skills, various activities have been employed and utilized that will
inspire as well as motivate students to persevere in their life goals. Students are likewise required
to have a notebook where they will write their reflections and assignments for the entire program.
Students will also write their thoughts and feelings after each module.

There are also activity sheets that students will accomplish individually or as a group, and at
times, with the participation of parents or guardians. At the end of Module 8, all activity sheets shall
be compiled in the students’ career portfolio for compilation at the Guidance Office as part of the
student’s Individual Inventory Service.

It is hoped that this Manual will be useful and significant as senior high school students tread
the road to their future, a journey they will travel not on their own but with significant others,
including you as their teacher and facilitator of learning.
