Summer Civic Career Program
In an effort to share with students the many municipal career opportunities, The City of Rocklin has partnered with the Rocklin Educational Excellence Foundation and the Rocklin Unified School District to develop the Summer Civic Career Program. This program will allow students to make important contributions to the City while participating in a challenging and rewarding work experience. During the three week program, running from June 13 - July 1, 2016, students will be placed in one of two Departments within the City of Rocklin based upon their skills and interests and will assist City officials and employees with a variety of tasks and projects. Job descriptions can be found here. The program will run daily, Monday through Friday; hours per assignment will be determined. Students will be required to attend a program orientation on Monday, May 16 at 2:00PM in the City of Rocklin Council Chambers. Participating students must be at least 16 years of age; a senior for the 2016-17 school year, not yet graduated from high school, and eligible to obtain a work permit. Students must also have reliable transportation as tardiness and absence will not be tolerated. Students who successfully complete the program will receive a $500 scholarship. Applications for this program can be found here and must be received int he College and Career Center by April 15. 
 
  
There will be an informational workshop on the program for students on Tuesday, April 5 at 12:15 in the RHS CCC.

Check out the "Career Cluster Finder" assessment in Naviance to begin exploring careers that might be suitable to you. Students will complete the Career Interest Profile and Strengths Explorer in class.

 



ROP classes are another great way to "try out" a career that you are interested in. Sophomores and Juniors should see Mrs. Tillery after winter break if they are interested in taking ROP classes the following year. More information on what ROP has to offer can be found here.

The ASVAB Career Exploration Program is a career planning and exploration program that combines a multiple-aptitude test with an interest self-assessment and a wide range of career exploration tools.

The ASVAB was developed by the U.S. Department of Defense. The ASVAB Career Exploration Program was developed with input from a panel of career development experts and designed to encourage students to increase their level of self-knowledge and to understand how that information could be linked to civilian and military occupational characteristics.

The ASVAB Program recently was re-designed to be helpful to virtually all students, whether they are planning on immediate employment after high school in civilian or military occupations, or further education at a university, community college, or vocational institution.

Seventy-six percent of the students who participated in the program did so because of their interest in making appropriate post-high school career and educational plans.
