How to Best Administer the CCI. 4.1
Are students taking responsibility for their future? They need to ask themselves, “What
do I enjoy?” If not, they won’t be able to embrace their future or this evaluation.
Tell them to “Click on ‘More Info’ ⇒ ‘Nature of Work’ links.”
A. Do they know about the Career? Ask them for example, “Do you know what an
Engineer does? Are they judging a career by one task? For example, being an accountant is a lot
more than posting items to a ledger. Get them to see the evolving day‐to‐day tasks of
each career path.
A. Their “Dream Career” could be a not listed skill. Our list has 172 listing;
encompassing 1,000 niche/related occupations. It could be one of these! Check out
O*Net Code’s related skills. Get them to read about their “Dream Career’s”
occupational listing O*Net Code listing as well.
A. One ego deflating occupational listing can turn them off.
For instance, young men might find it offensive if Registered Nurse is listed. Point out the
wide scope of the nursing profession. Specialties like anesthesiology, emergency
room, etc. Discuss how a skill can be used as a stepping‐stone to more prestigious
position. Young women can also, for example, find Engineering and Math occupations too masculine.
A. If they have disliked the company, they might hate the listing.
Ask, “Would you enjoy doing your old job for a great/fun workplace?” On talk
shows, call‐ins have had revelations that they love their career path after all!
A. Coach them on how to build a career path. Tell them, “Start small and learn the
craft. Then move up! Those that start at the top, fall quickly to the bottom!” See
Career Business Plan Handout.
A. Get them to click Training, Qualifications, and Advancement in their report.
Do they have the background, interest, and ability to do it? For extremely
competitive jobs like actor, get them to click on Employment Overview. Actor, for
example, states “Long Periods of Unemployment.” Will they fight or walk away?
A. Encourage them to find career niches. Tell them there will be more available
jobs, better pay and faster promotions. (Click on “Related Occupations.”)
