Career planning is a process that involves students, parents, teachers, counselors, and the community. The goal is to help students to make informed and thoughtful decisions about themselves and their future. The planning process includes helping students develop and implement an individual career plan.
CFNC, Futures for Kids, and Bridges are valuable websites that have on-line Career Inventories which assess their interests, preferences, values, abilities, and talents in order to identify either general or specific careers. In addition, students may further explore careers by participating in Web Research, Informational Interviews, Job Shadowing, Internships, Summer Programs, Part-time Jobs, and Volunteering Opportunities.
