Career Exploration

Career exploration is the process of discovering what careers match your skills and interests and then mapping out the education or training needed to get there. Career exploration also includes understanding the process of finding and obtaining a job.

Career Exploration Resources

Use the resources below to learn more about and explore different career clusters. Determine which clusters seem interesting to you and learn how much money you could make, future demands, and what training you need to enter that career field.

Skill Building

Understanding what skills are needed to get a job is critical, but what happens if your skills and experience don't entirely match what employers are looking for? 

Unpaid work like volunteering, job shadows, and internships are excellent ways to not only gain relevant job experience and put your skills to the test but it also communicates to future employers that you are serious about working (it also looks good on college applications and scholarship applications).

Resumes and Interviewing

Communicating your skills, abilities, talents and, personality is the job of resumes and interviews. Resumes and interviews are two critical parts of getting a job. Through the resume and interview process you will share how you are qualified for a job and what makes you unique. It is also your chance to see if the job or company will be a good fit for you.
