New DECA Product Will “Guide” You to Success

DECA Images is proud to release a new product – Competition Prep Guides – in each of the career cluster areas: Business Administration, Finance, Hospitality and Marketing.

This innovative product provides DECA members with career cluster vocabulary, business administration performance indicator definitions, career cluster performance indicator definitions, industry trends and presentation tips.  This laminated, folded handout makes it easy for your members to prepare for their competition exam and role-play or case study.

On the front cover, have members review the trends related to the industries that their competitive events are in; challenge them to find performance indicators that could be related to those trends and role play how to work that information into a role-play situation. Featured in the bottom right corner are trade associations that are related to the career cluster that students can use to further their research.

The next panel features cluster specific vocabulary with definitions for students to review. These terms can appear in either an exam question or performance indicators in a role-play situation.

On the inside, students will see performance indicators and definitions from the business administration area that is incorporated into each competitive area.  Next, there are career cluster performance indicators definitions that are specific to their competitive area.  Like the vocabulary, these may be seen by competitor in either an exam question or interview situation.

The Competition Prep Guide is a great resource for students and advisors because the information needed to study is provided in an easy to review format.  We hope this will help your chapter prepare for success and an opportunity to step on to the International Career Development Conference stage.
