Imagining Career Possibilities

Imagining a career path can be quite hard for some students. Since there are so many different types of professions, starting the process of narrowing down the occupational possibilities can be daunting. Parents and local school districts should work together to expose kids to as many jobs as possible.

This will give students, especially those in high school, more information about the type of work they might like to do when they get to the workforce. The reality of our 21st century economy is that some of today’s jobs will no longer be around in 5 or 10 years, but entirely new jobs will be created.

To help us understand things parents can do to support their kids’ career exploration, take a moment to visit THE PARENT TOOLKIT. This week's featured article is on imagining career possibilities.  Read it today and BOOKMARK the site.
