    Update Resume (English 11)

    Upload to Career Portfolio: My Portfolio -> Career Acquisition / +Add -> Resume

    • In 9th grade, students created and backed up their resume into a Google Drive (Spring, 2019). Students are expected to update their resumes each year. This will help greatly when they are required to do a final update prior to their Senior Presentations.

    Job Shadow (Not Required for the 2020-2021 SY)

    • The Job Shadowing Experience is the major component to be included in the Career Portfolio for the 11th grade year. This is an excellent opportunity for the students to get first-hand day-in-the-life experience in a career that interests them. Students will be required to independently plan, schedule, participate in, and reflect on their personal "day on the job." The Job Shadow may be completed over the summer, during the school year, or in conjunction with a class or club experience. This activity will provide students with an up-close look at what a "real job" is like and what education, skill, and experiences would be necessary to enter that field after graduation from Boyertown. If the Job Shadow experience is during a school day, students must complete an Educational Trip Form obtained in the Attendance Office prior to attending their Job Shadow. Failure to complete this form may result in the student receiving an Unlawful Absence mark in their attendance record. The Job Shadow Host Evaluation as well as the Job Shadow Student Reflection Sheet must BOTH be uploaded to the student's Career Portfolio (SmartFutures). 
    • *If students were able to complete the Job Shadow Artifact/Document. See upload path below:

    Job Shadow Host Evaluation & Student Reflection Sheet -> My Portfolio -> Career Pathway Experiences -> "Job Shadow"

    • Once you upload your Host Evaluation Form, please bring a copy to Mrs. Bright in the Counselor Suite.
    • **Job Shadow Interview questions are optional to upload**

     

    In addition, to pass HR for the year, students must have completed all requirements from the previous years:

    • Smart Futures Activities 1-7
    • Smart Futures Skills (Attempted, not passed)
      • Internet Basics
