This page provides resources for students (and parents as well) for career assessment and career information. Most are links to online resources.
The Occupational Outlook Handbook
is the best resource that I have found on the Internet that provides information about various careers. A typical description will inform the reader of the nature of the work, education and training needed, starting salary, median salary, physical labor one might entail, projection over the next ten years or so about the career's growth, related occupations and careers, and additional places to write for further information.
"COLLEGE QUICKSTART" is a resource that accompanies students who take the PSAT exam as sophomores or juniors; access to this information continues until the student graduates from high school. https://quickstart.collegeboard.org/posweb/loginbyepl.jsp?daun=uvdfglsczt
is a demonstration link.
Some of the resources include: a personality profile self-assessment, SAT preparation, and major & career & college matches based on the personality profile. Students need an access code that is provided on their PSAT score report. Other tools are available in this "kit."
My Majors is an excellent career assessment link that matches interests with college majors. There are some possible free giveaways associated with the link.
The Junior Achievement link has career assessment tools, job videos, college searches, and a host of other interesting resources. Navigation is user-friendly.
The "Where Do I Start?" link is a government site that is all encompassing for the entire college process. "Where Do I Start?" addresses looking at career options as the first step. A Good link for underclassmen to navigate.
