This course facilitates students' eventual integration into the working world by giving them an opportunity to explore their interests and begin a job search. The job search can be for an internship or the first job after graduation. In some cases, that first job may involve starting a business. Students obtain information about career options for accounting and management technicians. The information is to include the functions, tasks, knowledge, skills and attitudes expected of technicians. This should broaden students' understanding of their chosen career, including the requirements of professional behaviour and ethics. With this knowledge, students build on their portfolio for use in their next job search and take the first steps in acquiring a job of special interest. The particular steps to be undertaken during the course depend on students' analysis of their short-term and longer-term objectives.
