Career Conversations!



  • 2nd semester 10th grade
  • Her school had a once a month grade level seminar class. Her photography teacher was her seminar teacher.
  • Because she started exploring her careers in 6th grade, Ashley was actually able to take college level courses when she was a freshman and realized right away that she didn’t want to be in Marketing after all, she really loved Criminal Justice!
  • Knowing what websites to go to, what program advisors to speak too and what parts of herself she was confident in, made her a successful Concurrent Enrollment student and an advocate for her learning (some people call this great Financial Aid too)!

Career Cluster Job Projection




  • 12th grade
  • Updated Postsecondary Workforce Goal:
  • Joining the staff of a local Correctional Facility
  • Has 12 college coursework credits
  • In the beginning of her ICAP, Ashley has changed her mind a number of times but still to this day remembers the results of the Cluster Finder during her sophomore year that unanimously declared she was meant for Criminal Justice and Public Safety.
  • Her advisor at the time helped her understand that she could talk to her counselor about scheduling classes for her throughout high school that were related to and best prepare her for having a career in criminal justice.
  • This advisor also thought long and hard about what other experiences she could do outside of school too…She volunteered, mentored youth and shadowed a Parole Officer for a semester.
  • Ashley started applying to college at the beginning of her senior year.

  • Jr. Colorado Mesa University
  • Go Mavs!!!!!!!
  • Postsecondary Workforce Goal
  • Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice
  • Began her ICAP when she was in 6th grade.
  • She was introduced to a free statewide website that his parents and younger siblings used too.
  • She attended a career fair when she was in 8th grade – still to this day remembers how fun it was to leave school all dressed up and for the 7th graders to ask her how it was when she got back.
  • Because she had a plan built by 9th grade, Ashley got to take part in Concurrent Enrollment, student leadership opportunities and researched, applied to and received a Junior year scholarship.
  • She watched her friends struggle financially with paying for school and loosing money after they missed the Drop/Add time. She thinks they would have been much better off had they done some good exploring about their future options earlier. She’s kind of a mentor to them now!
