• Dear Students,

    The Tri-City Workforce Training Resource www.fremont.gov/workforcetraining is an informational website providing useful information on other post-secondary local training and educational opportunities. The website works as an on-ramp for counselors, students, case managers, and career coaches to navigate training and educational options.

    Because Post-Secondary Education is not just a four-year degree, a variety of training opportunities for adults at different points in their careers are included. The site provides informationon training and educational opportunities for Auto-Cad technicians, Medical Assistants, Bank Tellers, Pharmacy Technicians, or Pre-Apprenticeship Construction Programs for the trade industry, to name just a few. The site also includes funding sources to help students pay for classes, resources for entrepreneurs, growth industries, salary data, and Labor Market Information (LMI).

    Best regards,

    The DHS Counseling Dept.

  • Do You Know What the UC System is Looking for in Personal Insight Questions?
    Please find the following powerpoint from the University of California Counselor Conference addressing what the UC System is looking for with respect to the Personal Insight Questions.  All seniors considering applying to any UC campus will want to carefully consider what UC is telling prospective student applicants. 
     
     Here are the slides from the UC conference about what they look for in the personal insight questions. 
     
    Please keep the following in mind:
    • Slides #4, 6, 8-10, 13-15 - Pay close attention for general information.
    • Slides #17-29- Test your own knowledge with sample case studies having specific reasons why UC thought the responses were an "added value" or a "missed opportunity" on the student's application.
    • Slides #31-34 - More anecdotes and suggestions
      
    This is the bottom line: they want to be given context for HOW the STUDENT became WHO he/she is.
