Personal Qualities/Responsibility
You are to create a personal memory book. You should begin by designing a cover for your book
which represents your life. The book should be creative and reflect your personality. You should
begin by gathering pictures of yourself at different ages. Once you have collected your pictures, you
will then label each picture according to lifecycle/life task and describe what you were doing during
each phase. What was important to you? How you were developing? Etc. It is best to put each
phase on a separate page. Create a timeline to project the adulthood cycle. Be sure to label all the
events you think will take place during your life on the timeline. Don’t forget to include your family life
cycle. Feel free to use pictures from magazines or drawings to enhance your book.

Brainstorm a list of 10 changes that you have experienced or will experience throughout the career
development process. Choose one of the situations and describe how to effectively deal with change
throughout the various stages of the change process (change, doubt, discomfort, discovery,
understanding). Organize the information in a pamphlet, poster or power-point presentation.

               OCCUPATIONAL ROLE PLAY – Appendix 1.03 (8)

TASK: You are cordially invited to attend the National Conference in Workforce
Development. The purpose of this conference is to bring together a variety of
workers from each of the career pathways to discuss the interrelationship of life
roles. The organizer of this conference requests an RSVP by completing the
following personal data, which will be held in strictest confidence until you reveal
it at the conference.

Name:                                             Age:

Job and its Career Pathway:

Number of years in your current position:

Family members and ages:

Approximate salary per year:

Number of hours per week spent on the job:

Number of hours per week spent in family/home obligations:

Number of hours of leisure time per week:

How your leisure activities support your work life:

Activities you do to relax:

How your career impacts your life:

Overall satisfaction with the balance of career, family and leisure in your life:

Please come to the conference dressed appropriately for your occupation. Our
conference time will be spent communicating with each other in these ways:

   1. Informal networking before the program begins. It is during this time that
      others will try to identify your occupation and family life through your
      sharing of the information above. (Don’t tell them directly what you do,
      instead, let them discover your career/family life by talking about your
      duties, problems, benefits, life outlook, etc.) At the same time, you will
      gather information about other conference attendees that will help you
      guess their occupation/family life.

Appendix 1.03 (8): Occupational Role Play Continued

    2. Formal business presentation at the program. It is during this time that
       you will give a business speech that describes how you manage to
       balance the demands of job, family and leisure time. At the conclusion of
       your speech, other conference attendees will match your name with the
       career in which they think you are employed.

    3. Exchange of business cards. Use your creative skills and the computer to
       make a business card appropriate to your occupation. After all the
       conference attendees have given their formal presentations, you will
       exchange business cards with conference participants that will reveal
       career identities.

    Remember: Your status in the professional world depends upon the manner
    in which you conduct yourself at this conference.

    Your supervisor (who happens to be your “old” high school teacher) will be
    circulating to observe your business behavior and the completion of assigned
    conference duties.

    This activity is based on the original National Career Development
    Guidelines. Benchmark: Demonstrate knowledge of life stage.

                The Wheel of Life – Appendix 1.03 (14)
The eight sections in the wheel of life represent balance. Visualize the center of the wheel as 0
and the outer edge as 10, and rank your level of satisfaction with each area by drawing a line to
create a new outer edge. The new perimeter of the circle represents balance. How bumpy would
the ride be if this were a real wheel? Draw a second line to indicate how much effort you devote to
this now. Then create an action plan to increase your satisfaction in those areas most important to
you right now.
