This section was designed for use in counseling students as they prepare for college.  Feel free to print and share any of the pages with your students and their parents.

Your students' skills and interests will play a major role in their career-decision process, or in their decision to advance their careers. Encourage students to think about different skills, talents, activities, interests and personality traits that are unique and important to them. These can then be used to determine possible career opportunities that utilize their skills and talents, and are professions they think they might enjoy. Have the student research these careers to better understand them and help them match their interests and personalities to different jobs.
