The Social Problem
The route of this problem is a need for a raised awareness in careers guidance (see Appendix A-0000000000). Industries do not make themselves accessible to all students nor are they involved with the journey of a student. So it is up to us to fix the above 10 points.
A Micro Analysis (surveys, informal interviews, people I trust to give an accurate reflection)
Despite knowing that careers take a different direction upon graduation…..and it was up to me to find my passion and abilities….I myself felt a shortcoming with:
And so, I felt misinformed, helpless and a little embarrassed at times – but nothing felt wrong….I was still alpha….creating my space….making things happen….
To summarise this analysis – without a constant personal interaction on this front to go to – without something physical to touch and feel – without having a face for this front with others – without an eye on this front - without recognizing these skills and events as important development phases (past and present) - without seeing your lectures from whiteboard, to the application, to the actions, to the home, to the status quo, to our tree of knowledge – then I was just playing with what was hot...unproductive. And a lot of people go this route. And so I ASK, what pace have I been setting, if my untrained eye was due for a brick wall + setback scenario, which is inexcusable as alpha male. Didn’t I already know all of the above? Who understands the journey of alpha males ? I want students to be able to take control of this because they can, and more.
Another important point I want to make is that without hobnobbing, others can affect the ‘yellow brick road’ and hence your innate potential to do bigger and better things.
Tackling The Problem From All Angles
My theory of change is interactive careers guidance and having eyes around the campus, reason being, to be situated to bring justice to students to control their outcomes, produce results and offset bad undercurrents that are evident in the confusion and inconsistencies of life. We are the active participants. The factor of change in a student’s life.
Keeping end products in mind, the highlight of my results would be to see justice for the most timid of students. I’ve seen alpha males and queen bees let problems drop, all because it is out of their way, a stigma is involved and easier for them to serve as examples - although this is natural, the straight path, it’s careless - this presents the problem of “is letting someone die the same as killing someone”. Again, we are the active participants. The factor of change.
