Career Center Tips & Timelines 17 September 2021

Greetings Hornet Family,

Welcome back! Here we are into week three of the school year. I will be sending monthly, sometimes weekly depending on deadlines, tips and timelines to prepare for beyond high school. These monthly (weekly) reminders will provide you with information regarding:

  • Career Planning
  • College Process
  • Military Entrance
  • Testing
  • Financial Aid
  • Scholarships
  • Apprenticeships
  • Career Fairs
  • College Fairs
  • How to make an appointment to see the Career Specialist?
  • How to sign up to visit a college, career, or military recruiter?
  • And More!

There are a lot of deadlines and requirements to the college process, so often the emails will be heavy in the college information.

Here are some tips and timelines to consider.

8th & 9th Grades

  • Begin exploring careers regarding what training or education a career may require to get hired into that career
  • Explore careers and colleges on SchoolData (this is a program we use at the school to assist in career and college exploration)
  • Think about what classes you can take in High School that will help you land that career or assist you in getting into college
  • Sign up for RaiseMe as early as 9th grade to start scholarship savings from participating colleges

10th & 11th Grades

  • Continue your career exploration on SchoolData to help you decide what type of education you will need beyond high school
  • continue to maintain or improve grades
  • start applying for scholarships
  • Sign up for RaiseMe to start scholarship savings from participating colleges enter in all your information from grades, classes, to sports or community activities
  • Sign Up for Big Future on College Board to search and apply for scholarships

12th Grade

  • Complete college applications: 4-year colleges have multiple deadlines, 2-year colleges have different deadlines
    • Example: the University of Washington is 15 November 2021
  • Every college has its own requirements and deadlines for applying. Make sure you are checking the website from that college/university to keep up on deadlines.
  • Complete your Financial Aid to be eligible for financial assistance to pay for college, trade schools, and some apprenticeships
  • Many scholarships require Financial Aid to be completed including merit scholarships and college-bound scholarship
  • Complete your CollegeBoard CSS Profile
  • Sign Up or Update your RaiseMe account to see what colleges will offer you to attend their institution
  • Use Common App or Coalition for College to apply to multiple colleges with one application

Phew….that was a lot.
