Courses In High School To Take For Certain Jobs

What do I put for degree courses for high school on a job application?

I'm still currently in high school and I'm applying for a part time job. The job application says degree courses for education information and I'm not sure what to put since I'm still in high school.

On a job application, what do I put for "course of study" in high school?

If I were preparing for college in my high school years, I would have put “College Prep” in the blank.If I were taking more of the trade school preparation, I would have entered “Vocational Technology toward XXX”.If I were taking the bare minimums to graduate and wasn’t in one of the other categories, “General Studies” or “N/A”.When I filled out a job application a few months ago, they asked for my high school course of study. I entered “College Prep.” Unfortunately, they allowed only two blocks for college studies so I could enter only 2 of the 5 schools I attended. The schools that got listed were for my MS in Engineering and my PhD in Engineering Systems. The undergraduate degree went undocumented.

How do I find out what high school courses to take to get into a specific career?

Well firstly think of what courses your school offers that might be useful to someone in the career you want. Without any research you could probably guess that a fire fighter benefitted from a Fire Tech class, and a nurse from Anatomy.More importantly though, research. You can probably find suggested courses for any career with a simple search. Way back when I was in Freshmen Seminar, our final assignment was to do a PowerPoint on this exact sort of thing for any career of our choosing.

What high school classes should I take to become a computer programmer? (10 points best answer)?

I'm thinking about becomming a computer programmer. I'm a senior in high school right now and am thinking about taking classes to prepare me for college courses in computer programming. My school offers electives for Computer Programming 1, 2, and 3. But I was reading about college and it said you'd have to take Calculous 1 and 2. The only 2 math classes in high school I can take right now is either Trig or Probability and Statistics.

Which classes would you guys suggest I take? A math class or the computer programming classes?

Can you get a good job with a high school diploma?

Well, not really. Most jobs no longer want just a high school diploma and depending on how the job market is in your area, you may have an issue finding a job altogether. My friend had issues finding a job because the job economy sucked here. His mother's friend who is a manager at Pizza Hut told her he wouldn't hire my friend because he had people with bachelor's degrees trying to get a job when my friend had no work experience and no college coursework completed.

You may be able to find a job as a firefighter or police officer, but even then those are becoming more competitive. You can also usually take a few classes to become certified in some form of healthcare, but you probably won't make close to 80,000. It also depends on the area you live in too since 50,000 here is different from 50,000 in Nevada.

I'm a current freshman in high school, and I'm looking to land a job at Apple or some type of engineering job. What courses should I take, inside and outside of school to achieve this?

Good luck.There are three ways to get a job at any company, Apple included.Attain the proper education.Attain the proper experience.Attain the proper connections.You're looking at method 1 by asking about courses for an engineering job. You will need to finish at least a bachelor's degree at an accredited college before any company will consider your education. Listing “completed several courses at a nearby community college” will get your resume laughed straight into the trashcan.You can bypass education if you have the proper experience. In this case, you need to have a portfolio of several software projects completed to industry-standard quality. Otherwise, your experience won't amount to anything next to other degreed candidates. This would essentially require starting your own company, at which point you won't need a job if your products are successful.And lastly, you can take advantage of contacts and connections in a company. The person in question can vouch for your talent if you don't have any formal education or experience to show. The company would most likely hire you as an intern and pay for your college.So, to answer your question. Look into taking college-level courses that will count towards a bachelor's degree in software engineering. Research the programs of colleges that interest you. Most list the curriculum on their website. You can then hope to complete a bachelor's degree much sooner after graduating high school than would be typical.Here's the curriculum for Penn State's distance learning program for a BS in Software Engineering:Penn State World Campus

How long will it take me to get my high school diploma in Job Corps?

It depends on a few things (I got mine while at job corps). 1. How many credits do you currently have, 2. How much work you actually do (self paced), and 3. If you have high school all day or only part of the day. Because it's self paced it's possible to get all of your credits and graduate in a matter of months (I graduated in 5 months, didn't have many credits when I entered) but I was constantly on my work because wanted to move on to my vocation. There were people in my class that had been in the class way before me and didn't graduate until after me just because they only did one or two assignments a class or even a week. It really just depends on you.

Can a high school dropout get a certified college degree based on work experience?

No, for two reasons.First, I don't think there's any college that will (can?) issue a degree without a high school diploma.  They'll let you take a certain number of classes as a non-matriculating (not enrolled) student, but after that clock runs out, they need you to enroll (which requires the diploma) or leave.Second, accredited institutions are accredited because they follow an established, approved curriculum.  A school may allow you to test out of some classes, but they're generally not very liberal in those tests, the tests where they'll permit it is restricted to classes they believe can safely be taken anywhere, and accreditation still requires some minimum number of classes taken with them.You can overcome the first problem by getting a GED.  The second will require calling the schools that interest you and asking what placement exams they'd be willing to offer to undergraduates (again, this won't be many), and make the comparisons.If it's primarily a matter of cost, by the way, there are a handful of (I'm told) decent colleges with inexpensive online programs.  I found The 20 Most Affordable and Cheapest Online Colleges of 2015 on a quick search, for example.  A lot of them look like they'd cost less than twenty-five thousand dollars, total, assuming they're four-year programs, and a lot of them are at least regionally accredited.  If there's a flat rate for full-time students and you're willing to work (and can place out of introductory courses), in some cases, you can trim that to about three years, which would be substantially cheaper.
