BCIS, otherwise known as Business Computer Information Systems, is a required course that teaches students how to use the Microsoft programs Excel, Power Point, and Word. The class also includes sections on basic computer vocabulary and different functions, showing how the system works.

A brief glimpse into the employment process is also taken. Here the making of resumes, selected letters, and a job application is done.

  • My name is Emily Zoscak and I am going to be a senior at Allen High School. I have lived in Texas my whole life with my mom, step-dad, step-brother, and my father. They are all very supportive of me. Acting is my passion, along with cooking, traveling, gardening, and writing. Someday I hope to be either an actress or a travel writer.

  • Research is the keystone to discovering which career will fit your personality and needs. It is imperative to know the ins and outs of what you will hopefully spend a good part of your life doing.
  • These facts can be gathered from many places including the internet, which supplies objective information, or from an employee in that career field, giving you a first-hand account and the ability to ask in-depth questions.
  • On my self-evaluation quiz I had results ranging from an Aquatic Biologist to a Radio DJ. I chose to research a journalist, because that is something I would like to be in the future. I want to help America see the world from my eyes.
