This prototype curriculum is great for realizing high competitive human resources because students are not required to learn a lot of things, but just superficial. This curriculum provides facilities for students to learn something that is in accordance with their abilities and interests. Thus the introduction delivered by Muya Barida, M.Pd., as one of the speakers from the Education Talk with the Topic of Career Identity Exploration in Optimization Curriculum organized by the UNY FIP Education Policy Study Program, Tuesday (10/5).

Furthermore, Freedom determines students ' interests and desires in learning is good for students, but for students who experience confusion in determining interest due to lack of understanding. , stimulus, association, learning, then understanding is needed related to career identity. Muya explained that the career is a combination and sequence of roles played by a person during his life. "In Super theory with the concept of Life Span Development: The Career Rainbow explained that there are 4 career stages, namely, the age stage of 0-14 years at the growth stage, at this stage. Children do not have a strong career identity, new children learn to know a variety of careers. Age Stage 15-25 exploration (Exploration), Teenagers have been looking for, confused with him, have appeared a commitment to a career later. At the age of 26-45 establishment, have found and made a career in it. At the age of 46-65 maintenance, continue to improve until retirement. At the age of 65 and above, withdrawal" he explained.

This stage of career development determines not only from within itself but from the influence of the environment (job market), the historical situation of socio-economic, personal determinants. "In addition, we must look at Ginzberg's career development theory, children aged 0-11 years in fantasy times, children need adult figures to be used as models, so that he can identify a suitable career for himself. The age of 17- to 25-year-olds is realistic, going from subjective to realistic. At this time the teenager has begun to think realistically, can already determine a career that is suitable for him. In childhood tentative age 11-16 years children in the period of intersisi between fantasy period with realistic time, at this time the child still focuses on his abilities. Suppose the child likes mathematics, then he chooses a career as an accountant. After this transition period is over, children will focus on realistic things," he explained.

"The prototype curriculum will be successful if there is support. Preparation for how to hold screenings, what is their potential, we can develop. We cannot leave career responsibilities only to students, but teachers, communities, social environments, and relationships. I am optimistic that the prototype curriculum, can provide rainbow colors, which shines a light on the future of our learners," he concluded.
