[lo 3.8]

Comprehension - Your Career Options and Choices

  • Read the following article very attentively. Answer the questions that follow in full sentences and in your own words as far as possible.

1. Each year thousands of school children have to decide what to do with their future. Most leave the decision for the last minute and want to decide what to do with their lives when they are in matric. By then, they are so overwhelmed that they cannot make up their minds.

2. The trick is to start as early as possible. When you reach Grade 8, you should have many ideas floating around in your head about possible career options. These should be based on what you are interested in, your personality, your skills and your dreams. You would be extremely fortunate if you were to gain experience by volunteering your services to a company or organisation. Many such ‘job shadowing’ programmes are available. Volunteering your services will aid you in identifying your strong points and enhancing your capabilities. You can also find out what challenges and stimulates you.

3. It is important for high school students, to be sure of which subjects bestsuit their many career options and choices. Also, participating in as many extra-mural activities as possible, will also benefit the learner in terms of what can be learnt outside of school. Doing various projects at school exposes the learners to fantastic facets of development. More than anything, through extramural activities and volunteering your services, you gain self knowledge, develop skills and resources, which in turn enable you to recognise and optimise your potential. Apart from gaining in-depth knowledge about yourself, you also learn to explore life circumstances and discover your areas of effectiveness as well as learning to apply resources learnt in the roles we play.

4. This gives us a chance to consolidate career choices with personal worlds. 5. Above all, you are improving your qualities and your abilities when you join an extramural group and commit yourself to a project. If you are just about to start with high school, this is a good time to think about all facets of your character, and all your personal skills and talents.
