ways can DISCOVER be used and how long will it take?
The length of time varies depending on
what you want to do with DISCOVER. There are four ways you
can use the system:
Go through all of the Four Modules: Learning About Yourself ; Choose
Occupations ; Plan My Education ; and Plan for Work .
The number of hours needed to complete the entire program will vary for each
individual, but it can usually be finished within a few hours.
Go directly to a selected activity of DISCOVER for information.
For example, if you only want to learn about your interests, go directly to
the Interests Inventory.
Go directly to Occupational Searches to identify different search methods
and criteria. These searches are based on information you provide (interests,
abilities, majors, job characteristics). A search can also be done for 2-year,
4-year and graduate schools.
Go directly to Information Files for short and/or long descriptions of occupations,
ask questions about any specific occupation, or gather information about 2-year,
4-year or graduate schools.
need to be computer literate to use this program?
No, the DISCOVER program
is very "user friendly," that is, it teaches you exactly what to do as you go
through the system. The instructions are simple, and you will have fun as you
answer the questions. Career Services staff is available to assist you.
