What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

Do you have the feeling you are in the wrong career field but are unsure what new careers to explore?  Are you just starting out and are overwhelmed by career options? Do you want in on the secret to improved job satisfaction?  In this 90-minute session we explore personality type and how

it relates to career choice and career satisfaction.  Job satisfaction depends on matching your career and work environment to your preferred personality traits.  During this session we will take a short personality assessment, explore the results, and investigate resources which will help you discover career fields based on your assessment results.

For more information or to sign up for this session, contact the Peterson Education Center at 719-556-4996 or email 21fss.fsde@us.af.mil.

TGPS – also known as Transition GPS (Goals, Plans, Success): Accessing Higher Education Track

The Accessing Higher Education track is for those transitioning members pursuing higher education. It assists Service members in identifying the education requirements that support their personal goals. This track focuses on topics such as how to achieve academic success, how to research and compare institutions, and how to finance higher education. After completing the Accessing Higher Education Track, Service members will be prepared to complete an application to an accredited institution, schedule a session with a counselor from an academic institution, or meet individually with education counselors, as needed.

Funding Your Education

This briefing is for you if you are a student using Tuition Assistance and haven’t yet explored other funding opportunities to limit out of pocket costs or if you have a dependent going off to college soon.

We will have a special briefer from the TRIO program offering an in-depth briefing on all things educational funding related such as, Federal Financial Aid, Scholarships, and grants.  This will be followed by a briefing to help you understand the details of your GI Bill benefits so you can make the most of that benefit. 

High School to Higher Education

This course is designed for high school students (and their parents) who are college bound.  We begin by offering an assessment to help students match their choice of college major and career goals to personality type in order to achieve greater satisfaction.  We then offer information on the college search and application process from cradle to grave.  A detailed Financial Aid Briefing exploring FAFSA, scholarships, and grants will be given.  At the conclusion of the session, a GI Bill briefing will be offered for those who have transferred VA education benefits to dependents.
