ABSTRACT

Career planning curriculum will support student in their vocational decision making and
train them about lifelong career management skills. Employee can use their strengths
more effectively and efficiently. They will be able to learn their career tendencies,
skills, strengths-weaknesses, preferred working area, learning styles and occupations
that are compatible with their personal features. It is well-known that making vocational
choices presents the fundamentals of the Holland Code Career Model. Vocational
Choices are based on explanation of six personality types: (1) Realistic, (2)
Investigative, (3) Artistic, (4) Social, (5) Enterprising, and (5) Conventional. Career
Path Planning covers the explanations about student’s features such as; career
tendencies, learning styles, preferred working environment, weaknesses-strengths,
skills. Moreover, when students and teachers know students’ learning styles the
academic success will increase because students will know the better way to study and
teacher will know how to behave students that have different learning styles. Students
will be informed about their personal features and they will be informed how to use
their personal features to be successful in work life. Students will be able to determine
their professional tendencies based on academic study and concrete results, rather than
choosing one that is mostly common or demanded.
