Resources for Student Career Exploration

It’s never too early to start thinking about a career. Students who are entering elementary school may already have ideas about a future business or occupation. A federal government website called Career Voyagers offers a resource that is designed specifically with students in mind. Within this site students will find links which may be helpful when researching future job trends and careers related to their current interests.

School based career counselors may find the video library, that is divided into video categories, valuable when discussing health related careers, automotive careers and other emerging career fields. In addition to providing student friendly resources, other resources are available for parents and career counselors.
