Today, as you sit in a classroom, slog through homework, or study for a test, your goal is graduation. Your focus is on getting out of school and getting on with your life.
But that diploma is not the destination.
The ultimate objective is a career: turning your education into a paycheck and making a living doing something rewarding and satisfying.
That's where High School Career Connect can help.
The University of North Texas and the Greater Texas Foundation established High School Career Connect to provide career advice, postsecondary planning, and workforce trends to help eighth graders choose endorsements and high school students select college majors.
Through HSCC's one-on-one peer mentors and based on a student’s skills and interests, HSCC maps the primary high school-to-career paths (jobs, certificates, and college degrees), then helps formulate career strategies.
As a result, students possess individualized career paths, suggestions on majors, plans for their postsecondary experience, and increased confidence in their career path, helping them graduate with an enhanced skill set and increased employment potential.
Assess your skills and interests, and see what careers might suit you.
