Exposure to Career Options at Early Age

World of Work tackles problems seen in the education system head-on. Every student who passes through the World of Work will be armed with career options which they have learned about, received hands-on experiences with, met a professional in the career, and have practiced skills needed in that career.

By using the RIASEC model to determine employment personalities, the World of Work not only gives every child a chance to learn about many careers, but also helps every child determine which career fits their personality, strengths, skills, and values. Students involved in World of Work will not only know the how and what, but they will understand the why to everything they are learning. With each lesson they have at school, children will see how the lessons involving everyday subjects relate to a new field and why it is important to learn those skills and values.

The RIASEC Model

The RIASEC model is the number one predictor for happiness in a career and breaks down career options into 6 personality traits, Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional. Upon completing the World of Work, every student leaves with an About Me page that breaks down their top RIASEC traits, what careers fit those personality traits and best suit the individual student, lays out projects and individual breakthroughs for the student, and pinpoints the top strengths, interests, and work values for that student.

A great part of the World of Work is how it benefits teachers. Teachers are already overwhelmed by preparing for standardized tests, meeting deadlines, and squeezing any sort of fun activity into their already packed days. The World of Work provides a curriculum with support and lesson plans that integrate the subjects teachers already teach into lessons evolving around different careers. For example, while students are studying about becoming an engineer, math, science, writing, comprehension, problem solving, working as a team, and many other things are woven into that lesson.
