Hello!

Welcome to PEDS 110, otherwise known as Career Planning, Comprehensive. That's a bit of a mouthful, I know. (I didn't name it.) Still, I think the word "comprehensive" is appropriate here because this class is not just about planning a career, it's about choosing a career path and lifestyle that's right for you, including all the aspects of your personality, wants, needs, and current situation.

We will begin with defining who you are: your likes, dislikes, strengths and interests. Then, we'll look at what you want your life to look like, not just your career, but what you want your entire life to look ten years from now. Finally, you'll figure out how you can get that awesome life and rewarding career.

You will need access to a computer that can connect to the Internet, and basic computer skills: creating and saving documents, basic Internet navigation skills, and an email address (Cuesta assigns you one when you register.)

This class is a 3.0 unit college class. You should plan to spend anywhere from 5-15 hours per week completing course readings, quizzes, assignments and projects, as well as participate in online class discussions.

The good news? You can complete this coursework at any time of day or night—this class is fully online. However, please be aware that although there are no required class meetings, the course is NOT self paced. There will be weekly assignments with mandatory due dates. You will need to log in and participate in the class several times each week in order to succeed.

I hope that this class will serve you well by helping you design an awesome life. The rest of the sections in this welcome letter/portfolio will tell you more about the class. Click any of the links to the left to learn more. Feel free to email me if you have any questions that these welcome pages don't answer for you, both before or during the class.

Cheers!

Rebecca (Becky) Reid
