Career Exploration

In order for students to be fully prepared for a successful future, they need opportunities to explore a variety of pathways before they graduate from high school. Exposure to career options – including the military – helps students understand the skills and credentials they will need to achieve their professional and personal goals. Through experiences like internships, dual enrollment and other college-level coursework, and vocational and technical education options, students gain real-world experience and a practical understanding of employment.

If we want all students to #GraduateReadyNJ, we must anticipate what the career market of the future will look like and help our kids succeed in getting there.
