7. Finding a good job in my field is just a matter of luck. The meaning of the phrase “good job” varies from person to person. Ask yourself, “What makes a job good for me?” Your answer to this question will most likely involve your values or what is important to you. Do you want extra vacation time to spend with your friends and family? Do you want a job that requires you to travel? Knowing your values will help you to find a job that is good for you. 7. Finding a good job in my field is just a matter of luck. Sometimes people talk about careers in terms of luck and other outside forces over which they have no control. But when they really analyze it, career planning is not so mysterious. Thinking that only luck is involved may encourage you to do nothing when you could be taking steps to help yourself. If you stay focused on what you really like and want in your career, and if you practice good job hunting skills, your time and effort eventually will probably lead to job offers that fit some or all of your requirements. 8. Making career choices is so complicated, I am unable to keep track of where I am in the process. The process of career decision making is complex. It may be also helpful for you to talk to others about how they managed their career decisions. There are also many resources available that can guide you through the decision-making process. 8. Making career choices is so complicated, I am unable to keep track of where I am in the process. Career decision making can be difficult at times, but ultimately your career journey is in your hands and you can take charge of the process. It is important for you to stay focused on where you are in your decision making. Think about what you need to do next, when you need to act, and how well your career planning is going at any one time. By setting goals, keeping records, and concentrating on how you are using your time, you can keep track of the process. Once again, thank you for participating in the Career Thoughts Inventory Workbook evaluation. Your help may make SDS3340 a more effective course for career decision makers in the future!

Your Role in Evaluating the CTI Workbook (Treatment Group) In class, you read suggestions about improving negative career thoughts that were written by career counselors for the Career Thoughts Inventory Workbook. However, other students read paragraphs that were created to sound like plausible advice from friends on how to challenge and alter negative career thoughts. However, the advice focused on the “wrong part” of the negative thought. For example, in item one below the advice from a counselor in the CTI Workbook focuses on a lack of experience and confidence. However, the advice from “a friend” is about controlling “anxiety.” When looking at post test measures (such as the last 8 items you wrote today), we are hoping to find career thoughts that are both of better quality and more positive from those students who read the real CTI Workbook compared to those students who read the advice from friends. If you have any questions about the Career Thoughts Inventory speak with your small group leader or section leader. If you have questions about the Career Thoughts Inventory Work book

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
