Maybe my final project of the term (unless I burn some needles tonight...)

House; Ravenclaw
Project
The "brother's girlfriend is a fairly rare species, and the subspecies "that Vikki likes" is rarer still, endangered some would say! Thus, when found, they must be cared for and shown love, and few things achieve thus aim better than handmade gifts! These knitted wristlets should do the trick

What could be better during a long hot walk than a dip in a lake? I made this on-the-go swim kit by sewing together two travel towels to make carry pockets, and added a little sunshine sashiko for decoration!

It's a new term, and so we welcome new alumni students to our ranks!

Also, some new employability challenges have been posted, including some pop-up challenges which you will only be able to collect if you complete them this term

I've had a bit of a shift around of information to try to make it clearer, and easier to find to refer to, so please let me know if you think I've missed anything or confused the matter Smiley

Welcome to the Careers Advisory Office

Time to choose your profession!

Once you have completed 7 terms of the HPC and become an alumni, it's time to start training for your career. Careers Training is two stranded;
- Career Pathways: You should choose a job-specific career pathway to follow, and build a resume with each requirement (listed below). This will take at least 7 terms, but there is no upper time limit so work at your own pace and craft to your best. Let us know what career you're aiming towards so that we can cheer you along
- Employability Challenges: You should also complete any 7 'employability challenges' (more on these below) to demonstrate your non-academic skills and convince someone to give you a job! Add these to your resume too.

Professions are only open to alumni (that is, students who have already completed 7 terms at Hogwarts)
Current alumni are...
jenleahlynn, Mamaneedles, Mistress Jennie, tiamatfire, WhistleFish
Moonflame
Audania1, Fibrealchimist, noodle-bug, pottermouth
ErinAquaheart, Naantje, Ant Bee, Technicolouraquaheart


~~Career pathways~~
The requirements for each career pathway are listed in the Career Record Office. You can only follow 1 pathway at a time.

If an alumni student wants to propose a profession we don't have listed, they may request a pathway be built, or present a course of study that the headmistresses & career' officer (Mistress Jennie & Noodle-bug) will review for approval. Once a new profession path is approved, it will be added to the list.

~~Employability Challenges~~
Some of these challenges are ongoing with no time restriction, but some are pop-up challenges with a limited time window. More challenges will be added over time
You must complete any 7 employability challenges and add them to your resume to qualify for any career.
Employability Challenges don't earn house points, but may be combined with other classes or challenges
Employability Challenges are listed in the Careers Record Office including new challenges for the winter semester, and our first pop-up challenges

J-kivet, my understanding is that you can use any photo as inspiration for your craft piece; it could be one a friend posted on facebook, or that you saw in a magazine. Just pick your photo, make your craft, and explain in your post how the picture inspired the project.
It would really help mistress jennie if you could add your house to the projects you posted, just edit it into your post Smiley
