This is Activity #2 in the Introduction Sequence. It is expected to take 25-30 minutes. The goal is to get signed up on CareerVillage.org and familiar with what you can do on the site.
You will need:
- Computer with internet access
Do Now: Create your CareerVillage Account
Step 1: Watch the video above highlighting the basic features of the site
Step 2: Go to CareerVillage.org and click 'Sign Up' at the top right corner
Step 3: Create an account as a Student. You will be guided through a quick onboarding process where we'll ask for some basic information like your name, location, grade, and you can choose your CareerVillage avatar!
Step 4: If you have one, add your educator's invite code. If your teacher hasn't provided you with one, don't worry - you can always add this later.
Step 5: If you haven't already joined your School Page or Organization's group on CareerVillage, try to join it now. If your instructor gave you a direct link, follow that. Otherwise, search this page to find your school or this page to find your group.
Step 6: Ask your first career-related question (shortcut here)- it's okay if it's simple, you'll have plenty of time to perfect the art of asking questions this semester!
Step 7: Explore a few hashtags that catch your attention and read answers to other students' questions.
Step 8: Add to your Reflection Log for Activity 2 and send your instructor your reflection (usually a short written note of 1-5 sentences in the method instructed by your teacher) answering the question "How has this activity changed how you think about your career?" Use whichever method the teacher has specified.
