Figuring Out Your Future
June 25 2012
Take control of your future: it’s easier than you think, we promise! How can we make such a promise? At myBlueprint, we strive to enable Canadian students to make the most informed decisions about their futures…it’s our number one goal at all times (and you better believe it’s a S.M.A.R.T. goal!)
The proof is in the pudding: according to our recent study of Toronto District School Board students who recently started using myBlueprint, 88% felt more confident about making good decisions for their post-secondary plans, resulting in more than three quarters (77%) experiencing reduced stress when thinking about their future.
As you read in our previous blog post: Stressing Yourself Out, you’ve got enough to be stressed about during your high school years and on top of it all you have a bright future ahead of you that requires decisions to be decided and plans to be planned. Let’s cross “planning my post-secondary pathway” off your list of stressors and figure out your future. Here’s how with myBlueprint:
Forward-thinking: Select and re-plan the courses for your entire high school career and you’ll uncover the pre-requisites you need before you need to take them, and not when you’re selecting your courses for next year and it’s too late. Taking our Discovery & Explorations quizzes results in suggested high school courses and post-secondary programs based on your interests instead of providing you with an occupation you would be well-suited to and leaving you on your own to plan how to get there.
Visual Planning: It’s much easier to plan when all the information you need is laid out neatly in front of you. Select all your high school courses in an easy-to-read chart and visible on one screen. Researching post-secondary institutions or potential careers? View a wealth of information on up to three options, also all on one screen – no scrolling or additional web pages necessary.
Goal-oriented: We probably mention S.M.A.R.T. goals in every blog post (and in this blog post’s case, more than once) but we wouldn’t talk about them if they weren’t important. The goal setting feature in our Education Planner is one of our favourite (and one of your favourites too – 90%of students created significant goals after being introduced to myBlueprint.) This is a crucial time in your lives to be creating goals, working towards them, meeting them and, in some cases, exceeding them – and we’re here to help keep you on track!
Organized: myBlueprint provides a clean, easy to read, user friendly website – we’re organized to help you be organized. Being organized is key to any sort of planning, reaching goals and an asset in any job – all things that will definitely contribute to figuring out your future.
