Junior To Do List
Junior Meeting Questionnaire
This questionnaire asks you to respond to a series of questions regarding your post- high school preferences. Answering these questions will help you to begin thinking about your future and allow your college counselor to learn more about you in advance of your junior meeting. You should complete this questionnaire during your Jumpstart Day session on Naviance.
Junior Family Meeting
Each CDH junior and his or her parents/guardians will be invited to schedule an individual meeting with a college counselor to discuss your future. Your family will receive an email linking you to your college counselor's available appointments and you can schedule your appointment online.. Be sure that you have completed your Junior Meeting Questionnaire prior to your scheduled appointment. This is your time to get off to a good start and get your questions answered.
"Do What You Are" - Personality Type
Find out how your personality relates to career choices. In your Naviance account, under the "About Me" tab, in the "My Assessments" section, click on the "Do What You Are" assessment. Please try to answer all of the questions in one sitting for the best results. When you are done, you will see a rank ordering of careers that might fit your personality.
This is another helpful career assessment that will determine what strengths or skills you already have or might like to develop. In your Naviance account, under the "About Me" tab, in the "My Assessments" section, click on "Strengths Explorer". Again, please try to answer all of the questions in one sitting. After completing the questions you will see your top strength themes and how they relate to career pathways.
Career Interest Profile
This is another inventory that will help you get some idea of careers you might like. In your Naviance account, under the "About Me" section, in the "My Assessments" section, click on "Career Interest Profiler". When you have answered all the questions you will be matched with careers where your interests most closely align with people happy in those jobs.
CDH Education Fair
Every April, CDH hosts our Education Fair where more than 100 colleges and universities come to meet our students. Juniors and their parents are invited to come talk with schools about what they have to offer. This is an informal and convenient way to explore college options and to meet with admissions officers.
This "to do" list is also available on your Naviance account, under the "About Me" tab, "Interesting Things About Me" text box, then "Checklist". You can keep track of your progress there.
