The Fundamentals




   Exercise I
Discussion Exercise
   After 21 years of service, Daniel has been laid off from
    his job as a financial analyst. Daniel is receiving
    unemployment benefits now, but does not have a plan
    for when they run out. Daniel has approached you in the
    Resource Area to find out what resources are available
    to help him.

   Which key resources would you recommend to Daniel?
    What other resources would you use?
Discussion Exercise
   Cassandra has been on MFIP assistant for close to 5
    years and has little job skills or education, and needs to
    find a job before her assistance runs out. She doesn’t
    know where to start her search. She has approached
    you in the Resource Area to find out what resources are
    available to help her.

   Which key resources would you recommend to
    Cassandra? What other resources would you use?
Recap
   The Career Planning Process model and Career Matrix
    can be used as a framework and tools from which
    customers can work from.
   Internet web sites, information and resources are key
    components in career planning and job searching
    strategies, which need to be assembled and organized.
   Other sites offering assessments, efolios and offender
    information are resources tools.
   Creating a virtual presence, such as an email address,
    e-profiles and participating in social networking sites, will
    increase personal exposure.
This completes our training unit.
