The Career Guidance Manual has been developed to help teachers, guidance
counselors, and career advocates help senior high school students in preparing them for
a career they would want to pursue after senior high. The manual is composed of eight
modules all taken up together to form a handbook. The modules build up one after the
other such that at the initial module, students are presented with different career
choices, slowly developing and intensifying in the next modules that tackle the different
factors affecting the fulfillment of a dream/goal, how to deal with these factors, and the
preparations for equipping oneself with the skills required of a profession including
honing one’s personal attributes and characteristics that are equally essential as the
technical capabilities when applying for work. As such, by the last module, the students
would have been very confident about the career he/she intends to undertake.
In order to sharpen these skills, various activities have been employed and
utilized that will inspire as well as motivate students to persevere in their life goals.
Students are likewise required to have a notebook where they will write their reflections
and assignments for the entire program. Students will also write their thoughts and
feelings after each module.
There are also activity sheets that students will accomplish individually or as a
group, and at times, with the participation of parents or guardians. At the end of Module
8, all activity sheets shall be compiled in the students’ career portfolio for compilation at
the Guidance Office as part of the student’s Individual Inventory Service.
It is hoped that this Manual will be useful and significant as senior high school
students tread the road to their future, a journey they will travel not on their own but with
significant others, including you as their teacher and facilitator of learning.

Entering the Exits
This module is designed for use by teachers. It is intended to help them
facilitate the career decision-making of Grade 12 learners especially in choosing
curriculum exit before they graduate from senior high school. The title of Module 1
“Entering the Exits” means entering a curriculum exit after Grade 12. The learners
will have to choose whether he or she will proceed to college, do business, look for a
job, or develop the middle-level skills.
The module will help learners identify their interests through the National Career
Assessment Examination (NCAE). This is a tool that will help them choose the
curriculum exit suited for them. It is expected that at the end of the module, Grade 12
learners will appreciate their chosen life, career and curriculum exit based on their
interests and personality type.

IV. Lecturette (15 minutes)
In order to guide the conduct of career guidance at the school level and to
ensure the development of skills and competencies required in the world of
work, the Department of Education conducts career assessment to Grade 9
students through the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE). The
NCAE aims to provide guidance to individual learners for their future
educational and career choices. It also provides the basis for profiling learners’
aptitude in the four Senior High School tracks.
There are three domains measured in the NCAE. These are the General
Scholastic Aptitude (GSA), Occupational Interest Inventory (OII), and Aptitude
for Senior High School Tracks. The GSA measures the learner’s reading
comprehension and scientific, verbal, mathematical, and logical reasoning
ability. The OII is a checklist of occupational interests that provides an
assessment of inclinations or preferences for comprehensive career guidance.
The Aptitude for SHS Tracks determines the learner’s inherent capacity to
succeed in the SHS tracks.
A profile chart of the students’ occupational inclinations and preferences
through the identified cluster occupations is provided in the results of the
NCAE. The test is being administered to all Grade 9 learners who are currently
enrolled in public and private schools with government permit or recognition.
Module 1
Page 3
Moreover, learners with special needs may also be assessed provided that test
accommodations are met (per DepEd Order No. 55, s. 2016 Sec. 9).
Helping people make career decisions has been fundamental to
counseling psychology since its emergence as a profession, and it continues to
be central to its identity today (Gelso & Fretz, 2001, as cited in Journal of
Counseling Psychology, 2010).
After acquiring all the knowledge, skills, and attitude and being aware of
their interests and possible career path, Grade 12 learners will now choose the
curriculum exit they will pursue after senior high school. Grade 12 learners may
choose to work immediately since they are of legal age and have the
competencies to perform a specific job, or to pursue a business they can start
to earn money. They may also proceed to higher education and pursue a
degree course or take up any Technical Education and Skills Development
Authority (TESDA) courses for middle-level skills development.
Employment. Any senior high school graduate who plans to work after senior
high school can check with the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) in
their locality for possible job vacancies, or they can browse in the Department of
Labor and Employment website,www.ble.dole.gov.ph for possible local
Entrepreneurship. Senior high school graduates who plan to pursue the
entrepreneurship exit will have to consider many things. They have to be
cautious lest they end up losing money invested in the business. The Philippine
Business Industry (as cited in http://www.biznewsph.com/p/business-ideas-inphilippines.html, 2012) has come up with a list of ideas where prospective
entrepreneurs can start and grow their own business in the Philippines. (See
Appendix 3: List of Business Ideas in the Philippines.)
Higher Education. Senior High School graduates who would want to pursue a
degree course in higher education may directly inquire at any colleges and
universities in their area. They may also inquire at www.ched.gov.ph, the official
website of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) for the recognized
programs of schools per region.
Middle-Level Skills Development. Senior high school learners who may want
to pursue middle-level skills development after finishing a specific track and
strand in senior high school may inquire at their local TESDA offices for the
courses offered in their locality. Those who went to Technical Vocational
Livelihood Track and earned a National Certification Level II may apply for a
higher level of national certification if they opt to do so.
Senior high school graduates may go to any curriculum exit regardless of
the SHS track they took. If a learner took up a TVL Track, he/she can still enroll
in college to pursue higher education. Moreover, after entering a specific exit,
any SHS graduate may proceed to another exit. For example, a graduate who
chooses to pursue higher education and gets employed after graduation may
enter into a business or pursue middle-level skills development while employed.
Module 1

Nonetheless, whatever curriculum exit senior high school graduates
pursue is their own decision. They only have to maximize their talents and
resources in order to be successful. As what author and speaker Mack R.
Douglas said, “You are responsible for everything you do.”
V. Application (15 minutes)

4. Ask some volunteers to share their output.
Processing Questions

2 Discovering the Cs
Your learners are now another step closer to achieving life and career success!
From the previous module, the learners were able to identify their curriculum
exit. Understanding where to start their career whether from employment,
entrepreneurship, middle-level skills, or higher education upon graduation will give
them better chances of success.
In this module, they will learn the relationship of academic achievement to life
and career success. This module will help encourage the learners to strive harder in
pursuing their respective strands and tracks, and consequently improve their
academic standing. The module is also designed for learners to utilize the Labor
Market Information (LMI) for various job opportunities. Finally, they will be able to
identify the seven Cs of lifelong skills that will prepare them to meet both the
occupational changes and changing individual needs associated with life and career.
So, let us now open the door and explore the Cs of life and career!

Motivation (15 minutes)
Guess Who?
A strong relationship between academic achievement and life and career
success has been identified in the lives of some of the most reputable
personalities in the country. In this activity, the learners will be asked to identify
the famous faces of successful people who are academic achievers. These
people who are highly regarded in the different fields of work will be shown to
allow the learners to identify themselves about their possible future life and
career. This activity does not only intend to provide a possible model for their
career but also to encourage them in improving their academic standing.
Note: In case computers and projectors are not available, pictures of the famous
faces should be printed beforehand. Read the descriptions as clues. You may
also localize by including prominent personalities in your community. However, it
is recommended that you refrain from using politicians as examples.
Sequence of the activity:
1. Show the slide deck of the game Guess Who?
2. Divide the class into the four groups. Before the learners go to their respective
groups, make sure that the instructions have been communicated clearly and
all questions regarding the mechanics of the activity have been settled.
Remind the learners to maintain proper decorum and avoid shouting and
disturbing other groups. Tell them that although they are having fun, respect
should always come first.
3. Ask the class to gather their group mates and find a space to settle. The first
group to raise a hand will be given the chance to answer.
4. Play Music 2 to commence the activity.
5. Flash the clues. The name together with the face of the person will be
revealed after exhausting all the clues.
6. The group with the highest points will be declared the winner.

Processing Questions:
After the activity, ask the learners the following questions:
1. How did you feel about the activity?
2. From what industry or profession do the famous people come from?
3. What do they have in common?
4. What is the relevance of good academic standing to career and life success?
5. How can this activity help you in your chosen career?
Main Activity (25 minutes)
Labor Market Carousel
Learners need to make informed decisions as they prepare for career and
vocation. With so many industries and jobs available, it is easy to get
overwhelmed and to wonder where to start. In this activity, they will be given a
chance to look into the industries and jobs available in their community
juxtaposed the needed skills to succeed in those fields. This activity will help
them plan and set goals based on the wide range of profession and vocation
available in their community.
Preparation of the Labor Market Carousel:
1. Print or photocopy the Labor Market Carousel sheets from the appendices.
Sheets of the same codes will go together. Paste the sheets on manila
papers or cartolina.
2. Using the four corners of the room, set up four stations each containing the
manila paper or cartolina with LMI sheets. See the appendices for the
sample layout.
3. Post the manila paper or cartolina. It is recommended to set up the carousel
creatively using various materials available at hand.
4. Ready the speakers and carnival carousel background music.
Sequence of the activity:
1. The previous groupings will be used for this activity. Remind the learners to
maintain proper decorum: avoid shouting and disturbing other groups.
Remind them that although they are having fun, respect should always come
first. Make sure that the instructions have been clearly been communicated
and all questions regarding the mechanics of the activity have been settled.
2. Play the carnival carousel background music.
3. Ask the class to gather their group mates and go to the first station. Every
three minutes, the group will move to the next station until every station has
been visited. Have the learners note some information from each station
specially those concerning their chosen profession. Make sure to go around
the class to monitor progress of each group. Provide guidance whenever

The Changing Nature of Work
With the rapid pace of technological advances in the global labor market,
various occupations are continually being created. These demands open
doors to numerous job opportunities today and in the future.
In an article from the Society of Human Resource Management (2013),
five global trends affect the future of the global labor workforce:
Technology. In a highly digitized and connected world mainly driven by
smart devices, work is no longer limited to reporting to the office. On-line jobs
can be done at home.
Outsourcing. Today more than ever, companies try to cut on cost and save
resources. One practice by which they are able to do these is by outsourcing.
Outsourcing is getting portions of work done through outside suppliers rather
than completing it internally. The call center industry is an example of an
outsourcing practice that continues to expand in the country.
Changing workers’ attitude and values. Different generations exhibit
different qualities, attitudes, and values. Recent years have focused on
striking a balance between work and life. Workers need to love their work but
should have other interests outside the office, too.
Demographics and diversity. With better medical care, people are living
longer and life expectancy increases. In the next 10 years, five
generations―traditionalists, Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, and Gen Z―will be
working together. Different generations must be able to capitalize on their
tools while working harmoniously with one another.
Globalization. Companies are extending their businesses on an international
scale. Some companies are on a 24-hour operation scheme to meet the
demands of their clients and the global market. The dispersion of work
geographically makes it possible to get work done.
Module 2

Lifelong Learning
Lifelong learning is defined as “the ability to be responsive to change,
to be inquiring and reflective in practice, through information literacy and
autonomous self-managed learning” (Southern Cross University, 2017). This
may seem complex but in reality, it is a process that everyone needs to
undertake to grow as an individual may it be in life or career.
For the Grade 12 Career Guidance Program, we shall be defining
lifelong learning as the voluntary and self-motivated pursuit of personal and
career development. This pursuit can be applied on any of the different exits.
For example, if you choose to work after graduating, it would mean an
ongoing professional development; for entrepreneurs, it would mean
continuously exploring and expanding business interests; for middle level
skills, it would mean enhancing and upgrading your skills; and for higher
education, it would mean enrolling and exploring the opportunities in college.
This will continue throughout your life. You must be able to exhibit openness
and curiosity, and the willingness to investigate and consider knowledge and
ways of thinking. If you appreciate new ideas and seek new ways of learning
or understanding the world, you are ready for lifelong learning.
Module 2
Page 26
Seven Cs - 21st Century Lifelong Skills
You are now ready to learn the lifelong skills that will propel you to
succeeding in both life and career. These skills will guide you in adapting the
ever-changing demands of life and work. Let us take a look at each one of
Critical Thinking and Doing. This skill requires you to look at a problem with
“discerning eyes.” You should be able to see the flaws and errors and decide
on a solution. In a myriad of information, you have to develop this skill of
discriminating what is important and relevant. This entails research, analysis,
and decision-making. Application completes the steps. You need to follow
calculated steps and manage the implementation of your decision.
Creativity. Successfully turning new and imaginative ideas into reality is
needed to create and design best fit solutions. This includes innovation that
generates unique products and services or even new ways of doing things.
Collaboration. No one lives and survives alone. You need to engage and
work with others to survive. Empathy which is putting yourself in other
people’s shoes is needed for understanding. Compromising and communitybuilding can only be achieved by looking at someone else’s perspective and
situation as well.
Cross-Cultural Understanding. Every day, millions of people around the
globe travel for education, leisure, business, and profession. Keeping yourself
level-headed and respectful of the many differences among cultures will
enable you to live peacefully with the peoples of the world.
Communication. You are not only communicating to be understood but also
in order not to be misunderstood. Therefore, another skill that must be
developed is your ability to craft ideas and messages and deliver them in a
manner that is clear and purposeful.
Computing/ICT Literacy. Effective use of digital devices will enable you to
communicate, collaborate, and advocate. You must keep yourself abreast
with the many advances in the technology to keep yourself relevant.
Career and Learning Self-Reliance. Throughout your life you must be able
to grow, redefine, and reinvent yourself. This means being able to develop
yourself by managing change and adapting to it. Just like what Heraclitus
said, “The only thing that is constant is change.”

Processing Questions:
After the lecture, ask the learners the following questions:
1. What are the five global trends that affect the global workforce? How can
knowing these help you as a Grade 12 student?
2. How will lifelong learning help you succeed in life and career?

Reflection (10 minutes)
Hierarchy of Cs
The learners will create their Hierarchy of Cs by filling in the spaces of the
pyramid with the appropriate lifelong skills. An assessment of one’s self will
enable them to reflect on the levels of their lifelong skills so that they may
highlight their advanced skill while working on the ones that need
development. At the bottom, learners will have to complete the sentences that
would signify their commitment in maintaining, enhancing and improving their
Evaluation (10 minutes)
Shaping Up Slip
Give each learner a copy of the Shaping Up Slip. The learners will be asked
to fill in the shapes with the appropriate responses by group. The heart must
be filled in with the learnings they “loved and enjoyed;” the circle with the
learning they found “essential to know;” and the rectangle with the learning
they found “interesting to know.” This activity will help the learners track their
own learning and the teachers collect data to improve teaching or strategies.
VIII. Assignment (5 minutes)
Ask the learners to bring their Mini Me, Career Information Worksheet, LMI list
of KEGs (from Module 2 Grade 11 CGP), and list of Hard and Soft Skills (from
Module 5 Grade 11 CGP). If the learner does not have the materials, a
session on Grade 11 Career Guidance Program, Module 3 may be
conducted. Finally, instruct the learners to prepare their Grade 11 general
weighted average (GWA) to be used for the next module.

The Choice of Choosing
The choice of choosing is an ultimate freedom granted to all human beings.
This freedom of choosing can be best enjoyed to its fullest when practiced with
responsibility. The choice of a profession is one of the lifetime decisions that every
individual shall make. Self-introspection and careful self-analysis can be concrete
bases for decision making. This module will provide you with an avenue to explore
within yourself and thus enjoy the benefit and freedom of responsible choosing.
Total Time Allotment: 120 minutes
Letter to the Teacher
You have to prepare yourself mentally, psychologically, emotionally and
physically before giving this Module. There is a great possibility of engaging in
“Transference” wherein you are already the one sharing your issues triggered by the
learners’ sharing. The attainment of its purpose, which is to provide an opportunity
for the learners to examine themselves in relation to their chosen profession,
academic achievement, and realities in life, is highly expected. You may also
coordinate with the respective Registered Guidance Counselors for a possible premodule orientation regarding the processing of learners’ responses.
Tips to the Teacher for the conduct of this Module
1. This module can be scheduled to a maximum of two hours only.
2. You must be aware and should practice “traffic” in the course of sharing.
3. You may hold a teacher-student conference if there are many unshared
4. You may use a bell or a buzzer in case the class becomes unruly or too noisy
during sharing.
5. All issues that transpired at the course of disclosure/sharing must be kept
confidential in observance with the law on the protection of learners; if there is a
need to divulge the information for professional help, ask the permission of the
6. Sharing must be confined to career only. Teachers shall refer sensitive, technical
and cases beyond their capability to any Registered Guidance Counselor within
the Division or Region or any proper authority for appropriate action.

6. Show or present the guide questions.
Guide Questions:
a. Looking at your Career Information Worksheet, does your academic
achievement affect your choice of the career? In what way?
1) Yes. As a STEM student, I’m dreaming of becoming a civil
engineer however, my grades are below 80. I may survive the
Grade 12 yet I may not be qualified to enter college since there
may be a qualifying average or grade for engineering courses.
2) No. With my current grades, I do believe that I be easily hired
the moment they will look at my credentials.
b. What are your anticipations or apprehensions between your chosen
profession and the reality of your life in relation to achieving your goal?
7. Let the learners share based on the guide questions. (two minutes per
learner for approximately 40 learners per class)
8. Be aware of the time allotment.
9. After the last sharer, affirm the openness of the learners in a creative way
(hug each other, tap each other’s shoulder, etc.)
10. After affirming the class, highlight and consolidate their sharing and
provide a synthesis that will provide a bridge to the next activity.
Sample synthesis:
Thank you for being open and for trusting the group with your inner
thoughts and feelings. We may encounter different realities; however, we must
remain focused on our goals, dreams and aspirations. It is important that when
we make decisions, the choice that we make should be an informed one. In
order to know more about your realities and your directions in life, you will fill
up the Career Analysis Profile.

“Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks. Perhaps this person will
never be disappointed or disillusioned; perhaps he/she won’t suffer the way
people do when they have a dream to follow. But when that person looks
back―and at some point everyone looks back―she will hear her heart
saying, “What have you done with the miracles that God planted in your days?
What have you done with the talents God bestowed on you? You buried
yourself in a cave because you were fearful of losing those talents. So this is
your heritage; the certainty that you wasted your life.”
~Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept
Assignment (1 minute)

Introduction (5 minutes)
As the old-aged saying connotes,
your role as a teacher is to open doors
of possibilities for the learners under
your care. But you must also accept the
fact that you cannot let them trudge the
path you want them to take. You cannot
decide on their behalf. You cannot force
them to chew the chunks of information
you served them. Be as it may, you
have a crucial role in preparing your
learners to pack their individual bags
and take their own journey toward the
realization of what they envision to
This module will help you make your learners realize that their dreams in the
future could be achieved a step closer with the help of people who are in the
profession or business that they envision to be in the future. Your inputs through the
different activities that they will undergo will keep their enthusiasm burning to pursue
their career choice.
Continue the learning journey through this module and help your learners
affirm more their desire of becoming who they want to be in the future.

Brisk Walk Down Memory Lane (5 minutes)
Where are your learners now in terms of achieving their dreams? What have
they already done? Are they already geared up to take a step farther upon
completion of the Grade 11 modules? Have your learners take a brisk walk down
their memory lane. Let them recall various milestones in their plan of action
toward the realization of their dreams. Here is a poem that will help them revisit
their decisions. Afterwards, let them reflect by answering the follow-up questions.
Chasing Dreams
You’ve come this far,
Where else would you want to go?
You’ve reached this far,
What else would you want to do?
Chase your dreams.
Follow your heart.
Keep moving forward.
Always pray hard.
Life offers a lot of choices
But do not make a choice in haste.
Nothing is served in silver platter
Take your time, pray for it.
You’ve come this far,
But there’s more in store.
You’ve reached this far,
Move on…conquer… soar high.
– Jimmie
Questions for Reflection (10 minutes)
1. What is the message of the poem?
2. Which line or lines in the poem do you like best? Why?

Info-Bits (15 minutes)
It has been said that first-hand information can be a very rich source of
information for learners. These are the information (the beliefs, attitude and
skills) and success stories that we get from people who inspire us and make us
feel more enthusiastic about pursuing our goals. This is also called
Observational Learning.
Observational Learning happens when one learns by observing another
person perform a specific task. Observational Learning or the Social Learning
theory focuses on the social context of learning and proposes that we can learn
from another by observation, imitation or by modeling. Albert Bandura (1977)
endeavored to understand the cognitive processes associated with people’s
interaction with one another. Social Learning theorists say that learning can
take place simply by observing other actions and the subsequent outcomes of
those actions.
It is from this context that the Grade 12 learners are given assignment to
observe a person with whom they want to emulate in the future using the
informational interview form (attached in the appendix). By shadowing the
person or the “More Knowledgeable Other” or MKO (Vygotsky, 2014) in his
place of work and by asking pertinent questions based on the observation tool
that was crafted, it is believed that these new information will help them in
cementing their decisions to pursue their chosen career.
Informational observation also strengthens the claim of the creative job
hunting principle (Woodcock, 2014) where it says that the best way to choose a
career is to talk to people doing the job and to try it out via work shadowing and
experience. There is a lot of truth in the statement that you don’t really know
what it’s like until you have been doing it for a while: at least shadowing gives
you a good idea of what’s involved.
The idea of the observation is to promote a learning context where the
learners play an active role and become responsible for their own learning. The
role of the teacher therefore is to closely collaborate with learners to facilitate
meaningful learning experiences they acquired.
Choosing the right course is a big decision and it
is important to get it right, as it can impact future
success. Career awareness and self-awareness go
hand-in-hand. This is the other idea behind why
learners need to have enough information profile about
the career they want to undertake through the
informational observation. In so doing, the learners
could be taken away from the idea that luck,
unpredictable social factor, chance, beliefs and environmental factors play a
major role in one’s success in life as suggested by the Happenstance Theory
(Krumboltz, 2008).
Module 4

As Stephen Covey says from his famous book The 7 Habits of Highly
Effective People, “Begin with the end in mind.” We encourage our learners to
visualize what they wanted to become and they are already on their first step of
achieving their goals.
Relative to this, encourage them to craft their own career road map by
taking into consideration the information they gathered during their observation
and the learning they acquired through the different activities. While we
encourage creativity, do bear in mind that the content and direction of their
career road map plays a more important thing and the visual effect comes only
secondary. Instructions on crafting the career road map follow for a more
specific guide as to how the learners will craft their outputs.
Crafting a Career Road Map (5 minutes)
Having processed the different data gathered by the learners in the field
during the informational interview, they must be aware that there are attributes
of a person that needs to be learned in school and through participation to other
activities at home and in their respective communities. At this point, you may
guide your learners in crafting their own career road map.
According to an article by Cao (2013) a career road map outlines specific
steps to undertake for moving from one step to another in ways that will
facilitate growth and career advancement. This could be an illustration or
diagram that could easily be understood by the individual who crafted it.
Career road maps are flexible enough and could be revisited and revised
over time or as the circumstance warrants in order for the learner to keep track
of his progress or to address issues that hinder the achievement of the desired
The career road map, upon accomplishing should be communicated by
the learners to their parents/guardians or significant people whom they think in
one way or the other will be involved in the attainment of the desired goal. The
learners should specify the kind of help or support they expect from them. It is
also important to remind the learners to communicate to their support group the
specific steps they will take and the projected time frame of accomplishment. In
so doing, the learners will have an active support system that will help them out
in achieving their career goals from time to time.
Below is a sample template of a career road map. A separate worksheet is
attached in the appendix. However you can encourage the learners to come up
with their own designs.

Here is a concluding activity that will somehow encapsulate the concepts
needed to be learned by the learner and as a valuable take away when they
proceed to the next modules.
Let them accomplish the task and have a gallery of their outputs either by
hanging them as mobiles or posting them on the walls of the room as collage
for viewing.
The template is provided for this activity. Do not forget to process the
different outputs. The following reflection questions may help in processing and
re-affirming their decisions to keep on track in pursuing their career goals as
they have mapped out in their career road map. You can add more questions
as you see it necessary.
What helped you decide about the visions you made for yourself 10
years from now?
2. How do you intend to surpass the different obstacles that you foresee?
The following questions/items should be accomplished by the learners.
Let them write their answer inside the shoes.
1. I want to be ______________________ who is _______________.

2. What are the challenges that you foresee in achieving your career
Note: When you prefer the outputs to be hung as mobiles, be ready with small
clothespin and strings to be used as clothesline inside the classroom. When you
prefer it to be posted as collage on the walls, assign a specific area in the classroom
where the shoe outlines will be placed.

Assignment (5 minutes)
VMCV of My Future Company
Do you ever know of a company or a business enterprise that never
seems to accomplish very much because of lack of a mission statement, goals
or core values? If so, do you want to work in these companies or at least put
one for yourself in the future? Definitely, you do not want to end up in a mess
because of lack of direction. A company or an enterprise needs vision because
it provides the destination of the business or the enterprise; a mission
statement which is the guiding light of the destination, and so on.
From this standpoint, make a survey of the existing companies or
enterprises in your locality and ask for their own vision, mission, goals and core
values. You may use the template below to accomplish the task.

Informational Interview
What is an informational interview? Is there really a need to do it? What benefits
can you get from it? Read the following information.
An Informational Interview is an activity where you will make an appointment
with a person who has similar career or business that you desire when you finish
Senior High School. You will get information about the job or business including the
company where that person belongs. This is to have a better understanding about
the job or business you are interested to pursue. In the interview, you will be given
the opportunity to seek information from the person about the beliefs, attitude and
skills needed related to his job or business. It aims to make you become more
informed about your career choice. You will need the information you will get to
compare and match it with your own interests, knowledge, and skills. In this way,
you can evaluate whether the job or business affirms to your career choice.
To better understand the job or business, you will also include in the interview
the mission statement and core values of the company or business of the person
you interviewed.
In addition, this interview will also help you develop your communication skills
and confidence as well.
Preliminaries before conducting the informational interview:
1. Interview someone who has a similar job or business with your career choice.
To help you identify the person or business owner to interview, ask assistance
from your friends, neighbors, family, teachers, alumni, or your barangay
officials. List at least three persons as possible interviewees. The first one to
be available will be your final interviewee.
2. Contact your potential interviewee by letter, email or phone. State your name
and that you are a Grade 12 learner. Tell him/her about your intention―why
you are contacting him/her and from whom you received his/her name.
Specify that you will just be asking for the opportunity to conduct an interview
about his/her job or business as a means of exploring on your dream job or
3. If he/she consents to be interviewed, ask for his/her most convenient time and
manner of interview (whether via phone or face-to-face). Request for 15–20
minutes for a phone interview, or 20–30 minutes for a face-to-face interview.
If possible, request for a face-to-face interview.
4. Respect the interviewee’s time by staying within the time frame agreed upon.
5. Assure the interviewee that the information you have gathered from him/her
will not be used for other purpose except for the assignment given. Express
your words of gratitude after the interview.

Future Combo, Activate!
Page 64
“It takes two to tango!”
This cliché emphasizes the need for people to work zealously in tandem with
others to make their endeavors succeed. The same holds true for the career
development of learners. While they consider the personal, academic, and familial
factors in their career development, they must likewise connect their life aspirations
to the pressing demands and trends in the local and global scenario. The word
combo, an abbreviated form of the word combination, signifies the convergence of
personal career choices to the actual needs in the labor market and industries.
By doing so, Grade 12 learners will be guided in fulfilling the vision of the
Department of Education that expects them to “contribute meaningfully in building
the nation.” This also ensures that learners are able to attain their life and career
goals vis-à-vis working for the greater interests of the country at the macro-level. To
help learners clearly determine the direction of their career choices, mission
statements become essential as the baseline of their career plans and actions. This
module intends to facilitate the learners’ ability to make such convergence possible.

Even organizations have their mission statements that define the reason for
their existence. They align their activities toward achieving these statements. Smallscale entrepreneurs and self-employed individuals are also guided by their own
mission statements of becoming successful. Learners must realize that their
personal mission statements must harmonize with the mission statements of their
prospective occupational fields.

IV. Lecturette (25 minutes)
“Where do I go from here?” This question may be posed by learners now
that they are about to complete their Senior High School. To help them answer
this, the personal mission statement becomes very essential.
According to author Stephen R. Covey, a personal mission statement
enables a person to connect with (his) own unique purpose and the profound
This statement provides an individual with a clear direction as to where he
wants to go and what he wants to achieve. As learners are about to embark on
their career in any of the four curriculum exits, such statement will allow them to
focus on the path they will follow with conviction in the face of any challenging
For a personal mission statement to become fulfilling, it has to make a
difference in other people’s lives or organization. This means that a person will
seek his purpose and what he can contribute best not only for himself but also
for his family, friends, prospective employer, the community, and the world in
general. (https://www.livecareer.com/quintessential/creating-personal-missionstatements).
Module 5
Page 69
To enable learners to craft a personal mission statement, the following
contents should be reflected:
1. their values and personal beliefs,
2. goals,
3. things that make them happy,
4. their dreams and vision about their future,
5. what they are good at,
6. what they are passionate about, and
7. how they want others to perceive you.
Although a personal mission statement serves the purpose of directing the
learners to life and career decisions, the process of career development entails
another step. That involves the gathering of information for them to make the
wisest choices.
In Module 3 of the Career Guidance Program for Grade 11, learners
familiarized themselves to government agencies for career linking. This
included Project JobsFit that provides timely, relevant, and accurate labor
market signals for in-demand jobs and skills shortage.
The Department of Labor and Employment assures that there are plenty
of local jobs in the country. It has logged an estimated 200,000 vacancies by
employers in the enhanced Phil-Jobnet, the government’s online job search
(Source: http://www.ro1.dole.gov.ph/default.php).
The Department’s labor market study, Project JobsFit: DOLE 2022,
reflects the regional industries, key employment generators, and current
occupational and courses trends and demands in the local and global scenario
(refer to Appendices 3 and 4).
What the learners must also realize and sincerely understand is that their
mission statements do not end in their personal development and interest.
Rather, it is intricately linked to what they aspire their country to be. Dr. Jose P.
Rizal rested his hopes that the youth will be instrumental in nation building
when he remarked that they are the hope of the motherland. This implies that
when they plan for their career choice, they should also consider factors like the
country’s economy and hence, synchronize their career choices to benefit the
country as well.
The learners are the youth of today who will soon build the nation of
tomorrow. It is very essential for them to realize that even at their young age,
they could embrace their social responsibilities by being aware that they could
already do something to contribute to nation building. By fulfilling their tasks
and duties as children to their parents and as students in schools, they are
Module 5
Page 70
already training to take on roles that allow them to be productive and valueladen citizens.
Now that they are about to exit from Senior High School, they should be
more conscientious that they are critical in contributing to making the
Philippines progressive. As such, the learners are highly enjoined to commit
themselves to live up to their personal mission statement in making a difference
to other people’s lives and give a contribution to the community at large. When
learners collectively align their personal missions to this end, the vision of
nation-building through them becomes attainable.
Needless to say, the parents and relatives of these learners and the
government have invested on them as human capital with the hope that in the
near future, they will partake in the noble mission of building the country and
ushering it to the progress that it has visualized for the people and the nation as
a whole. Being the human capital, it is but fitting that they enhance their skills,
values and interests that would tell them of the most appropriate curriculum
exits they would finally choose. By working to ensure that they work best in
what they will be doing, they become empowered and ready to engage in
activating the most promising future for them, their family, their community, and
the nation at large.
Note to the Teacher-Facilitator: Refer to Appendices 3 and 4 to discuss
briefly the current trends and demands in the courses in the Philippines, and
employment and industries in the region. Explain to the students that they are

Values are a fundamental building block of your mission in life (Clarke, 2012).
Brown (1995) in her Values-Based Holistic Approach to Career Development third
tenet states that values play an important role in the career decision-making process
of individuals more than functioning as this presents the direction to a desired end
state and has a central role in setting goals or expected outcomes. Values also serve
as the basis for evaluating one’s own actions and the action of others, particularly in
terms of how the individual and others must function (Villar, 2009).
Values are acquired as a result of value-laden information from the
environment interacting with the inherited characteristics of the individual. Since
cultural background, gender and socio-economic level influence social interactions
and opportunities, priorities placed on values by people from various multicultural
grouping vary and influence the choice of careers and other life roles. Values that
are influenced by other people’s value systems may not truly represent the
individual’s true values.
This module will let our learners identify the values they possess to keep them
balanced with those values shared by their significant others—school, family, and
community. They may be able to know their selves better as they continue
navigating vast opportunities in their lifelong journey.

IV. Lecturette (15 minutes)
We make choices and decisions based on our values. A value is a
principle or belief that we
1. prize and publicly affirm with conviction;
2. choose from among alternatives; and
3. act on consistently.
There are different kinds of values. These are:
 personal values such as self-respect, self-fulfillment, health, privacy,
peace of mind, financial stability, independence
 family values such as love, close family ties, family happiness
 spiritual values such as establishing a close personal relationship with
God, seeking His will in one’s life, following His commandments,
working for the good and well-being of the less fortunate
 work values such as precision work, power, exercising competence,
public contact, fast pace, change and variety
 career values such as personal growth, advancement, prestige and
status, recognition
 social and humanitarian values such as service to others, helping
people in need, love of country, moral fulfilment
 cultural values such as debt of gratitude or utang na loob, getting
along with others or pakikisama, authority
Conflicts in values may be intrapersonal, interpersonal, or
organizational. An intrapersonal conflict is a situation where one experiences
conflict of values and needs within oneself. (Example: Achievement conflicts
with health; independence conflicts with security.)
People with divergent values but who must live or work together
experience interpersonal conflicts. (Example: Your teacher values
authoritarianism but you value independence.)
Module 6
Page 94
Organizational conflict is experienced by a person whose personal
value system clashes with corporate values. (Example: Your class values
teamwork but you value independence, time freedom, or working alone.)
Value conflicts create tension and anxiety which can lead to stress.
They can make people indecisive, a situation that can confuse the ones they
live or work with. If these behaviors become inconsistent, this can result in
interpersonal problems. So, how do people resolve conflicts in values?
To resolve an intrapersonal conflict, one has to be clear about his or
her priorities. Priorities depend on one’s roles, goals, and personal mission.
Interpersonal conflicts can be resolved through communication in which both
parties try to see and understand the situation of the other. If organizational
values conflict with one’s personal values, there is a choice of either setting
aside the latter or embracing the values of the organization, or leaving the
organization and working for one whose values are compatible with his or
hers. (Santamaria 2009)
Duane Brown’s Values-based Holistic Approach to Career Development
Values have cognitive, affective and behavioral components that
facilitate prioritization of values for decision-making. Each person develops a
relatively small number of values that are prioritized in a value system. Values
are prioritized when a person can rank the order of importance assumed by
his or her values in guiding his or her behavior and when he or she can act
according to that priority.
Authentic values are brought out through an insightful dialogue
involving self-reflection. True values, when fully expressed, are capable of
leading a person toward focus, purpose, satisfaction and happiness.
Furthermore, a value is crystallized once it has a label that is meaningful to
the individual. Once values are crystallized and prioritized, the individual can
go on directly to career choice making (Villar, 2009).

Version of Me 2.0
This module entitled “Version of Me 2.0” refers to the individual who is
discovering the real Version of Me 2.0, that can be awesome in his/her own way and
able to manifest greatness in pursuing a lifelong career. It is a transition from school
to the curriculum exits that the learner will plan for the future job that he/she will be
productive and persistently sustain in the real world of work―that’s the real version of
me 2.0.
In order to figure out how learners will work with Me 2.0, the learners should
understand who they are and how well they function. This will be a great help to
learners to be aware and be guided on what they want to become, who they want to
be, and know where to begin. What traits do learners possess that they can be proud
of? No matter where the learners are or what moment they are in, let us take this
module and learn things forward together.

they have to think―and thinking is always a good thing for everybody. Questions
help learners clarify their thoughts. Questions demand answers and require the
situation to be thought through, to its logical conclusions.
With this process, the learner will be able to decide better about their career
III. Main Activity (20 minutes)
The main activity is based on the motivational activity and from the
modules in Grade 10 and Grade 11. This activity focuses mainly on the process
of transition of the learners from school to the four curriculum exits and possible
workplace that corresponds to their curriculum exit. This is taking into the hands
of the learners the realities they have to face once they set into the real world of
work. In the realm of work, learners will have to recognize work ethics and work
values they have to imbibe, including improving their personality in order to
succeed in whatever career they pursue.
Our hands are very important parts of our body. The hands symbolize how
an individual works. A lot of memories are found in our hands, just like a scar
somewhere in the finger that reminds you of a time when you were chopping
wood for fire, or helping your mother prepare for dinner. Or it may be a scar
from heated oil that scratched your hand while frying fish. It may also be a callus
on the hand that reminds you how hardworking you are, such as when you go
farming, wash clothes, and do household chores for your family.
The brain serves as the master that the hand may follow (doer). This
simply states that our hand acts what the brain commands; as both are working

explain how?
Note to the Teacher:
Ask the learners to volunteer to answer the three questions and synthesize this to
connect to the lecturette.
Senior high school is a transition period or passage from one stage to another
until the learners reach their chosen career goal. There are important factors to
consider in reaching the chosen career goal. One is by exposing oneself to the world
of work in order to get a taste of what it takes to be working and to become workers.
By exposing themselves to the real world of work through work immersion, learners
slowly learn and develop within themselves the work principles and work values. As
such, once they themselves are in the realm of real work, they would know the rules
and become exemplars of other coworkers in terms of practice of work ethics and
work values.
Note to the Teacher:
The definitions that follow are for the consumption of the teachers in preparation for
the lecturette.
Definitions of Terms
Conformity is a type of social influence involving a change in belief or behavior in
order to fit in a group.
Motivation is literally the desire to do things. It is the difference between waking up
before dawn to pound the pavement and lazing around the house all day. It is the
crucial element in setting and attaining goals—and research shows you can
influence your own levels of motivation and self-control. So figure out what you
want, power through the pain period, and start being who you want to be.
Personal development covers activities that improve awareness and identity,
develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability,
enhance the quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and
Personality development is the relatively enduring pattern of thoughts, feelings and
behaviors that distinguish individuals from one another. The dominant view in the
field of personality psychology today holds that personality emerges early and
continues to change in meaningful ways throughout the lifespan.
Expectancy theory (or expectancy theory of motivation) proposes that individuals
will behave or act in a certain way because they are motivated to select a specific
behavior over other behaviors due to what they expect the result of that selected
behavior will be.
Module 7
Page 103
Two-factor theory (also known as Herzberg’s motivation-hygiene theory and
dual-factor theory) states that there are certain factors in the workplace that
cause job satisfaction, while a separate set of factors cause dissatisfaction.
Trait theory (also called dispositional theory) is an approach to the study of human
personality. Trait theorists are primarily interested in the measurement of traits,
which can be defined as habitual patterns of behavior, thought and emotion.
Operational Definition:
Work ethics is the guiding principle of correct working.
Work values is imbibing the guiding principle of correct working.
Goal motivator is a personal or hygiene motivation adopted from Herzberg’s
motivation theory.
Return of Investment (ROI) is the human capital with work ethics who became
productive and efficient toward work.
IV. Lecturette (30 minutes)
“A life that not lived for others is not a life.” – Mother Teresa
The activity “My Hand Version 2.0” has something to do with the individual’s life,
the learner’s future career. The symbolic hand interprets how the individual works.
The realization of the learners chosen career with its work ethics, work values and
personality that fits him/her to their career goal.
In the future workplace, it is important for the learner to know the duties
and responsibilities of both employees and employers. (Refer to appendices 1
and 2.)
As the learner experiences education from the school, his interest is in
future career progresses. According to Gestalt, (here and now theory) the
experience of the learner has a strong influence that he could learn and develop
his work ethics and work values in the process of learning specific knowledge
and skills towards his chosen career. These are the factors that employers are
looking for in an applicant (learner). Aside from the intellectual part of the
learner, another important aspect to consider in the lifelong career planning is
the personality of the learner.
The learner’s personality is an asset not only in the future workplace, but in
everyday living. Most employers highlight “pleasing personality” from an
applicant. Personality is progressive and developmental. The personality of the
learner has been recognized from Module 1 to Module 6. And as the modules
progress, the learner’s personality also improves as it is enhanced in every
Module 7
Page 104
module. Whether the learner will decide to be employed, pursue college degree,
make a business, or just stop moving forward for career advancement, that
learner has his own unique personality.
Personality Development essentially means enhancing and grooming
one’s outer and inner self to bring about a positive change to one’s life. Each
individual has a distinct persona that can be developed, polished and refined.
Improving personality and Image is a reproduction or a mental picture of
you as seen as others. People react to you based on the way you present
yourself, the way you look, speak and behave. If you act defensively, you invite
attacks. If you act strong and confident, people will respond to you with respect
and deference (Santos, 1984). Some Filipino men and women generally appear
overly modest and shy. Instead of behaving assertively, they behave too
submissively, they let the situation appear to be controlling them.
According to the study of Bencsik, et al., on the relationship between
motivation and personality type, it is proven that there is a significant
relationship between the known and accepted (attractive) goal of work, its value
and employee satisfaction. These relations are factors that reinforce intrinsic
It is significant to note that the factors that the learners have considered in
planning for life and career such as the goal motivators of the learner have to be
recognized since these are the aspects that could lead him to his career
success and eventually address the needs of the society or could halt him from
advancing his career and fail to meet the needs of the society.
Here are some factors that made the learners what they are now: Where
are they from, the city or a small town in a province? What were their past
experiences, particularly in the family? The way they respond to people is a
result of the way they respond to their family members specially their parents in
their formative years.
The learners in this module would recognize their motivators as intrinsic
and extrinsic motivators in order to move forward to the next level and even to
sustain their lifelong career goals. Intrinsic motivators are internal variables
within the individual that give rise to motivation and behavior. Example is the
Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory.
According to Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, an individual first
have to satisfy the basic psychological needs (food, shelter and clothing) before
the individual takes the second step up to the next need level which is Safety
and Security, then the need for Belongingness (to love and to be loved), the
need for Esteem (Self-esteem) and Self-actualization which is the highest need
of a person.
A process motivator emphasizes the nature of the interaction between the
individual and the environment. Examples of valued outcomes in the workplace
include pay increases and bonuses, promotions, time off, new assignments,
recognition, and many more.
Module 7
Page 105
Another external motivator to consider which focuses on environmental
elements to explain behavior is the motivator itself. Motivators are more
concerned with the actual job itself. For instance, how interesting the work is
and how much opportunity it gives for extra responsibility, recognition and
promotion. According to Herzberg, hygiene factors are factors that ‘surround the
job’ rather than the job itself. For example, a worker will only turn up to work if a
business has provided a reasonable level of pay and safe working conditions
but these factors will not make him work harder at his job once he is there.
To relate the chosen career to the needs of the society, the learner
requires to process himself/herself to change and take the balance in order to fit
in and address the need of the society.
The individual in the society is the learner who carries with him/her the
factors that will enable him/her to fit to the needs of the society. The learner’s
factors are his/her work values, skills, knowledge, personal qualities, enhanced
personality, work ethics and not limited to friendliness, approachable,
genuineness, warmth and many more. An individual develops and functions
within the environmental context.
It is also important to note that as the learners move forward to their career
goals they need to recognize their own core work values and work ethics as well
as recognizing other learners work values and work ethics to work harmoniously
as one team (senior high school). The learners will encounter themselves in the
same situation as they exit to work, to have a business, to college, to middle
career job and even if they halt to advance their career. The learners have
already learned how to cope and adjust themselves with the changing career
The process of this module is for the leaners’ goal is to recognize one’s
knowledge, skills, qualities (personality), values (personal values) and work
ethics is to get the desired career goal and to learn how to sustain in his/her
desired curriculum exits to be able to address to the need of the community and
to the society as well.
Module 5 mentioned about ROI (Return of Investment) as not being limited
to monetary investment only. The individual learner with work ethics and work
values in the future workplace may sustain and even be promoted to a higher
position. As the quote goes, “As long as you’ve got passion, faith and are
do anything and have anything you want in this world.” – Unknown
It is important to note that, while the learners’ work values play an
essential role in their career choice, they should not consider them in isolation.
Learners may also look at their other traits including personality type, interests
and aptitudes. When learners find themselves in a better job that success anst
equals better success and satisfaction that sustain them in the position (Frank
Parson, 1908).
Version of Me 2.0 then is a process that the learner will become ready not
just in the workplace but in everyday encounter. The learner then is ready to fit

in himself to an organization. Consider the My Version 2.0 – will now be a
marketable person with a lifelong career.

In our everyday life, we often encounter unique personalities who can inspire
our day or just make our day. The Knots symbolize our everyday life struggles. To
make things easier for us to handle, it is suggested that we take our day one at a
time, stay positive, and avoid toxic people if you think these people will just put you
The choice is with you to take. Remember, life is wonderful when we live
joyfully and harmoniously. By sharing our blessings with other people, success is in
our reach.

Appendix 5
Positive Work Ethics
Work ethics can be defined as a set of values, which involves the right
approach, attitude, precise behavior, respect for others and lively communication.
Basically, work ethics normalize what an employee would do in different
situations in office premises.
The habit of following good work ethics is inherent―it comes from within. It
involves our morality and other values, apart from what our parents have taught us.
Workers revealing good work ethics are considered suitable for better positions and
more responsibilities. Hence, it becomes important to be honest, responsible and
Positive Work Beliefs
Honesty: The old adage, "honesty is the best policy" is true today more than ever.
Any job assigned to a person should be done with utmost honesty, without doubledealing, untruthful or larceny. Employee business ethics manuals from most
scandalized corporations are likely to contain slogans touting its commitment to
honesty and integrity at work.
Integrity at Work: Integrity implies strength and stability. It means taking the high
road by practicing the highest business ethics standards. Representing integrity in the
workplace shows wholeness and reliability in a person's character and in an
organization. It shows that person have solid workplace behavior ethics that matter in
the real world that promote positive work ethics.
Dependability: Those who are dependable are considered reliable as well. Hence, it
is necessary to develop the quality of being a responsible person. This will, in turn,
nurture brilliant results and set you as a good example for those around you.
Responsibility: Accusing others, claiming victimhood, or passing the buck may solve
short-term crises, but refusal to take responsibility corrodes respect and unity in an
organization. Ethical people take responsibility for their actions. Workplace stress
issues are no excuse. Likewise, actions show the ability to be responsible both in the
little and big things. Good work ethics show a deeper promise to personal
Trust: There’s no free drive to good work ethics. Trust is hard to earn and even
harder to get back after you’ve lost it. Everyone who comes in contact with you or
your company must have trust and confidence in how you do business ethics.
Conflicts of interest in the workplace must not be on your detector display.
Respect: Respect is more than a feeling but a demo of honor, value and admiration
for something or someone. We respect the laws, the people we work with, the
company and its assets and ourselves.
Module 7
Page 119
Teamwork: Always remember that you are a part of the team, no matter what role
you play in it. Do what is not only good for you but also beneficial for the team as a
whole. It is a business necessity to work openly and supportively in teams whether
formal or informal. You need each other for effective problem solving in the
Efficiency: Efficiency is vital for a person’s own growth as well as the improvement of
the company he is working with. It is very easy to spot inefficient employees, who
waste a lot of time and resources. However, efficiency is still a hallmark of good
Quality: Quality should be more than making the best product, but should extend to
every aspect of your work. A person who recognizes quality and strives for it daily
has a profound sense of self-respect, pride in accomplishment, and attentiveness that
affects everything. From your memos to your presentations, everything you touch
should communicate professionalism and quality. Do not let workplace stress issues
rob you of striving for quality in everything you do.
Modesty: Humbleness and modesty are among the essential elements of good work
ethics. Only a dupe is arrogant, while a wise person always shows behaviors of
Leadership: A leader is out front providing an example that others will follow.
Problem solving in the workplace must be your first response. The real test of these
values comes from the resulting action. It takes a concerted, company-wide effort,
beyond inserting these words in an employee manual, to make it happen.
Positive Work Habits: Inculcate good working habits that will impress the people
you are working with and your superiors as well. Coming to work late, dressing
inappropriately and shuffling jobs are considered as signs of not following good work
Initiative: To be successful in whatever you do, it is vital to take initiatives on your
part. Do not wait to be told what to do. If you are doing the right thing in an
acceptable manner, do not hesitate to take initiatives.
Positive Attitude: Maintaining a positive attitude at work is very important to
complete your tasks successfully. This is because your coworkers get affected by
your trait and respond accordingly.

Duties and Responsibilities of Employees and Employers
Mechanical engineers create solutions and solve problems, playing a central role in
the design and implementation of moving parts in a range of industries.
Mechanical engineers provide efficient solutions to the development of
processes and products, ranging from small component designs to extremely large
plant, machinery or vehicles.
They can work on all stages of a product, from research and development to
design and manufacture, to installation and final commissioning.
Most industries rely on a form of mechanical systems and mechanical
engineering is thought to be one of the most diverse of all engineering disciplines.
Because of this, there are employment opportunities in a range of sectors, including:
 aerospace
 automotive
 biomedical
 construction
 manufacturing
 power
 railway
Mechanical engineers can be involved in the management of people, projects
and resources, as well as the development and use of new materials and
Projects that mechanical engineers work on can vary significantly, from
researching and developing medical products (such as mechanical hearts), to
improving production processes in large oil refineries or designing services within
buildings. Across all sectors, the tasks generally include:
 designing and implementing cost-effective equipment modifications to help
improve safety and reliability
 developing a project specification with colleagues, often including those from other
engineering disciplines
 developing, testing and evaluating theoretical designs
 discussing and solving complex problems with manufacturing departments, subcontractors, suppliers and customers
 making sure a product can be made reliably and will perform consistently in
specified operating environments
 managing projects using engineering principles and techniques
 planning and designing new production processes
 producing details of specifications and outline designs
 recommending modifications following prototype test results
 using research, analytical, conceptual and planning skills, particularly
mathematical modelling and computer-aided design
Module 7

considering the implications of issues such as cost, safety and time constraints
working with other professionals, within and outside the engineering sector
monitoring and commissioning plant and systems
Working hours
Working hours typically include regular extra hours, but not usually weekends or
Self-employment and freelance work are possible for qualified engineers with a good
track record and experience. Short-term contract or consulting work is also possible,
often arranged through agencies.
Mechanical engineers can find employment in a huge range of sectors;
mechanical engineering has usually played a part in almost all the products and
services we see around us.
Employers of mechanical engineers include:
 aerospace and automotive industries
 the armed forces and the Ministry of Defense, e.g., the Defence Engineering and
Science Group (DESG)
 construction and building services
 energy utilities, including nuclear
 engineering consultancies
 government agencies
 manufacturing industries
 medical engineering
 oil and gas industries, including petrochemical industries
 process industries, including pharmaceuticals, food and cosmetics
 the public sector, including the Civil Service, local authorities, hospitals and
educational institutions
 research establishments, both academic and commercial
 sports engineering
 transport, including road and railways
Recruitment agencies advertise vacancies and handle contract vacancies,
particularly for experienced engineers.
Professional Development
It is possible to enter the engineering industry through a graduate training
scheme. If you do this, you will complete a structured course of training, which
usually involves working within a variety of disciplines.
It is likely that you will work towards gaining chartered engineer status (CEng),
which is an internationally-recognized qualification awarded by the Engineering
With CEng status you have higher earning potential and improved career
You will need to be a member of a professional institution so that you can apply
through them for professional registration. Relevant bodies include:
Module 7
Page 122
 IMechE.
The process of becoming chartered is more straightforward if you have an
accredited bachelors degree, along with a Masters or an accredited integrated MEng
degree. To see which qualifications are accredited, see the Engineering Council.
Some employers will offer opportunities to study for a part-time MSc in a
relevant subject.
You will also need to demonstrate that you are working at a particular level and
have the required professional competences and commitment.
Most large firms offer structured training and encourage continuing professional
development (CPD). Usually, firms offer in-service training and short courses for
specific needs. This may include placements in different departments to widen your
Some employers are unable to provide broad training opportunities themselves,
and it is worth checking what arrangements they have in place.
CPD can be aided by joining one of the professional bodies, such as IMechE or
IET, which offer support through structured CPD programs. They also run events,
courses and conferences.
Career prospects
Most careers in engineering lead to a senior position with responsibility for other
staff or larger projects and budgets.
Gaining chartered status (CEng) is a significant help in career progression. It will
be proof that you have met a UK and international standard of experience and
knowledge in the engineering profession. More information is available at
Engineering Council - Chartered Engineer.
As companies operate in an increasingly international market, the European
engineer (Eur Ing) status and additional language skills will become a distinct
advantage if you wish to progress further in the profession.
All chartered engineers are eligible to apply for Eur Ing status. See Engineering
Council - European Engineer.
You may decide to develop additional skills, such as business or management,
so that you can get involved with larger projects and take on greater responsibility.
Good commercial awareness is essential for career development, as well as
developing people management skills, as it is likely you will be required to lead teams
or manage projects.
You may be able to move into business functions, such as procurement, sales
and marketing or human resources (HR). Once you have developed your technical
skills, you can move into senior engineering posts, such as engineering director.
Module 7

Appendix 7
Improving One’s Personality
Early in life, one’s personality is already revealed. However, experiences,
education and situations modify them at such length. It can be improved by
constantly evaluating and checking one’s behavior and accepting challenges and
opportunities to modify a personality for the better.
Techniques to improve it:
1. Know yourself. Make an honest to goodness personality check.
2. Be willing to develop a strong desire to change for the better.
3. Set a checklist of the good and bad or strong and weak points and make a plan on
how you improve on the weak points. The plan must be made in a step by step
4. Follow up and evaluate progress of planned implementation.
Poise and Grooming
How you look can make a difference not only regarding the way you feel inside
about yourself, but also on your on-the-job performance and in your interpersonal
Check your bearing and body movements. Rigid or relaxed, the way you walk
reflects how you feel:
 a tired shuffle
 a nervously hurried pacing
 a relaxed stroll
 a proud strut
Correct any negative mannerism like:
 Fidgeting with hair, jewelry, belt or belt buckle
 Twiddling thumbs
 Touching face
 Sniffling
 Scratching yourself
 Picking your teeth
 Foot tapping or foot rocking
 Clearing your throat or swallowing air
Wear appropriate clothes. The image you should project is one of
Responsibility, Respectability and Trust.
Module 7

You and Your Wardrobe
Your clothes/accessories should suit you according to:
Age… and more
Do not overdress specially at work. Clothes should not be so conspicuous as to
distract attention from the business at hand.
Jewelry―any piece of jewelry to be worn should be functional, or should add
For women: use scarves to peck up simple designed outfits.
Rules for Accessories
 For business dressing, moderation is the key.
 Your accessories should suit the occasion, age and personality of the wearer.
 It is a right to mix real, fake and ethnic jewelry, provided the fake jewelry is not
blatantly plastic.
After you have clothes and accessories together, take a final glance at the
mirror. If you have some doubts, take something off.
 Invest on a good pair. If your feet hurt, your face will show it.
 Shoe color should generally be darker than the color of your hemline.
 Strappy sandals, open-toed and heels, extremely high heels are not appropriate
for office use.
 Shoes can match your bag in color or texture but not both.
 White shoes look good only for casual worn with white skirts or white pants.
 Preferably made of leather; condition of shoes should be satisfactory.
Wardrobe Turnoffs
 Wrong color of the underwear for the clothing so that it shows through
 A skirt with a slit worn with slip that shows through the split
 Bare feet in open-toed shoes in a business atmosphere
 Open-toed shoes with reinforced toe nylons
 High-heeled shoes in need of heel repair
 Buttons opened below the bust line
 An excessive amount of jewelry
 More than one ring per hand
 Clothing worn top too tightly

Instruct the learners to review their Grade 11 Module 8 Goal-Setting Activity
output and assess their accomplishments vis-à-vis their target goals. This will
lead them to acknowledge their shortcomings and encourage them to desire
knowing other lifelong learning strategies which they will need upon they exit
Senior High School and grow in their chosen careers and lives.
Procedure for the activity:
1. Give back the Grade 11 Module 8 Goal-Setting activity sheets to their
respective owners.
2. Instruct the learners to take a look at their Grade 11 Module 8 Goal-Setting
Activity Sheets and review their long-term, mid-term, and short-term goals.
3. Distribute 3 meta-strips (1 blue, 1 red and 1 yellow) to each of the learners.
4. Instruct the learners to write on the blue meta strip the goals which they
have already accomplished since they targeted them in Grade 11; on the red
meta-strip the goals which they were not able to accomplish but which they
think they really need to accomplish in 1to 5 years; and on the yellow metastrip those goals which they still want to pursue in 6 to 20 years. Inform
them that they are allotted 10 minutes for this activity. Mount the Career
Destination Plot on the board/wall.

Now that you are very certain about your preferred life and career, you
might wonder, what is next after landing on your dream job or getting your
desired profession or vocation? Learning should never stop once you became
employed, you need to continuously improve and undergo lifelong learning
activities that can help you grow in your chosen profession and reach your
ultimate career goal. Lifelong learning is composed of different strategies or
activities that can help you improve continuously in knowledge, skills and other
competencies that are important in your life and career. Lifelong learning
strategies include, but are not limited to the following programs or activities:
1. Graduate school programs (e.g. Master of Science in Criminal Justice,
Master in Business Administration, and Doctorate Courses)
2. Adult learning courses, distance education programs, and online webinars
(e.g. TESDA Online Courses, UP Open University and Livelihood Trainings)
3. On-campus training events (e.g. seminars, workshops, special speakers,
4. Off-campus conferences, conventions, and workshops (e.g. National
Conferences for Educators, Nurse Practitioner Conference, and others)
5. A personal structured reading plan focused on a particular area of
development (e.g. Reading plan for improving leadership skills)
6. Mentoring or coaching by immediate supervisors/managers
7. An in-house action research project.
8. Social networking (e.g. LinkedIn)
The Lifelong Learning Plan
It is a human nature to desire progress. According to Victor Lipman of
Forbes, the possibility for “career advancement is an especially powerful job
motivator. Writing a plan on how you want to progress in your career will give
you a clear path on how you can grow in your chosen life and career.
For you to grow and become successful in your own chosen life and
career path you need to develop a plan for your life and career advancement.
Lifelong Learning Plan is a written plan that will serve as a road map to your
voluntary, ongoing and self-motivated pursuit of development for either
personal or professional growth. You need to set goals for your improvement,
set time frames to accomplish these goals and identify resources and key
persons that can help you achieve these goals.

The Three Aspects of Your Lifelong Learning Plan
The career aspect will give you a structure on career advancement that
will guide you on the things that you need to do, to go where you want to go in
your career, like your transition from entry-level position to managerial position.
In the social aspect of your LLP, you will be guided on how to establish social
linkages in your career and expand your network. While in the personal
aspect, you will identify key areas for personal growth and will make you
prepared for important transitions in life, like setting a plan to marry and have
your own family. This is based on the notion that your personal life will affect
your career.

My Lifelong Learning Plan
Name: ____________________________________
Track and Strand: ___________________________________
Though there is no prescribed procedure in creating a Lifelong Learning
Plan, the following are the suggested steps that one can undertake to come up
with an effective career progression plan:
1. Start by identifying your areas of improvement
After being employed or hired in your desired profession or vocation, you
can still advance in that career and aspire to reach a higher status. The initial
step is to identify areas of improvement in knowledge, skills, competencies,
and values that you need to prioritize in achieving your career goals. This
can be done through a Career Gap Analysis, wherein you will compare
your current situation to your career goals, then describe what you need to
accomplish in order to achieve them.

Below is how you should accomplish your Gap Analysis:

2. Set objectives based on your gap analysis
Restate your gap description into objectives. Remember that goals and
objectives must be SMART, which means specific, measurable, achievable,
relevant, and time-bound. Restate your gap description into objective as
shown below.

3. Write your plans to bridge the gap.
Now, let us work with the main part of your Lifelong Learning Plan. The
objectives that you set will bridge the gap in your career progression.
However, to ensure the accomplishment of these objectives, you need to
identify lifelong learning activities, key persons and resources involved in
achieving your career and life goals. It is also important to make your
objectives time-bound and set mode of verification as proof of your
objectives’ attainment:

the best activity that will close the gap between your career goals and your
present realities.

No man is an island, the cliché goes. To achieve your career goals, you
need key persons that can help you accomplish your objectives for personal
and career development. Your family, friends, colleagues, mentors or
coaches, department heads, supervisors, even spiritual or financial advisers
can actually be part of the key persons involved in your career development.
Career advancement is also an investment, you need to allot financial
or materials resources to accomplish doable tasks that will help you
achieve your set objectives.
Your LLP plan should be time bound, setting time frame for each
objective to accomplish will somehow help you monitor your progress and
achieve your goals on time.
Mode of verification is an actual evidence of your outcome after doing
a particular lifelong learning activity. It can be a certificate of participation in a
training or workshop, a coaching or mentoring form, or Transcript of Records
after finishing your Master’s degree.
For sample output, refer to Appendix __.
VI. Evaluation (10 minutes)
Write a Letter to Your Future Self
After setting a clear path of career progression through their Lifelong
Learning Plan, the learners will write a letter about their future self, five
years from now. Instruct the students to consider the following questions in
writing their letters. They can use their mother tongue language to feel more
comfortable in expressing themselves:
1. What do I like about myself right now? (Ano ano ang mga magagandang
katangiang meron ako?)
2. What do I think are the things that I need to improve in my life right now?
(Ano ang mga katangiang kailangan ko pang paunlarin?)
3. What are the things that I should have accomplished after five years? (Ano
anong mga layunin ang dapat na makamit ko na limang taon mula ngayon?)
4. What are the goals and dreams that I want to achieve in my career and life?
(Ano ano ang aking mga pangarap at layunin sa aking karera at buhay?)
5. Why am I passionate about my chosen career and life? (Bakit lubos kong
nais ang aking napiling karera?)

Sulat para sa Aking Sarili
Mahal kong Gio,
Gusto kita kasi ikaw ay nakatuon sa iyong mga pangarap at masikap
sa iyong pag-aaral. Hinahangaan ka ng iyong mga kamag-aral at guro, dahil
sa iyong husay sa pakikipagtalastasan. Gayunman, kung may isang bagay na
dapat mo pang paunlarin, ito ay ang iyong pag-sasaayos ng mga gawain at
time management. Sana, ngayon ay isa ka ng Master Teacher sa isang
pampublikong paaralan, na gumagabay sa mga mag-aaral ng ika-21 siglo
gamit ang mga makabago at mas epektibong pamamaraan ng pagtuturo.
Alam ko na mahal mo ang propesyong ito, dahil naniniwala ka na mahalaga
ang gampanin ng guro sa paghubog sa mga kabataan upang sila ay
magkaroon ng magandang kinabukasan.
