Career Exploration

Where do you see yourself in Five Years?

In order to determine what career is best for you, it’s important for you to spend time evaluating your skills, interests and work values. It’s not too early to be thinking about a career. This will help guide you when deciding on a college.

Self-assessments can help you find, or rule out, types of careers that sound appealing.  Remember that the career you decide on now doesn’t have to be your life-long career.  The average person switches jobs 10-15 times throughout their career!

Students are welcome to meet with the College & Career Advisor, Mrs. Wright, to discuss steps to guide them through self-analysis, career exploration, and educational goal setting. She can help with:

  • Career exploration
  • Job shadowing with professionals in the community
  • Resume and interview prep
  • Summer opportunities exploring careers in engineering, business, health care, computer science, and more.
