As a part of a student-centered career exploration and goal-driven strategy to connect with a person or an entity that does what they desire (as a career option), I present the old concept of Show and Tell. Using Show and Tell, adult learners use communication, research, technology, network building, and career exploration to identify an agent who collectively employs the career skills they desire to execute. Students conduct introspective research to determine their goals, beliefs, attitudes, values, schedules, skills, and employment strategies to find, connect with, observe, interview, and share (with the class) this agent and what they have learned about their selected career path or a closely related field.
