Find Your Future - Step by Step

 

Career Assessment

Students are encouraged to have their career assessment results from school or to spend 15 minutes in our MEDCO Community Promise Career Planning Kiosk to discover which career pathways fit their future. To take the assessment ahead of time click here and then select Uncover Career Interests.


 

 

Career Exploration

Area business and industry leaders will identify career opportunities according to Career Clusters so students can follow their assessment results to the pathways that align with their interests, values, and skills. Talk with employers about growing career opportunities, industry expectations for skills and education or training, and learn the ins and outs of potential future careers. See what businesses are representing the Career Clusters.


 

 

Education and Training 

There are many options after high school and you can explore them all in one place. Once you know your pathways and the requirements of your future career, find an education or training program that helps you earn the credentials and skills to be successful.

  • Colleges and Universities
    Visit with a diverse and wide-ranging list of colleges and universities from across the U.S. More than 70 colleges and universities are expected to attend. See who's registered to exhibit and make plans to talk with them about potential programs and majors.

  • Apprenticeships/Building Trades
    For students looking for a more hands-on post-high school training experience we will have members of the Building Trades Registered Apprenticeship Programs on hand to discuss their programs and the career outlook for their professions. See the programs planning to attend. 

  • Military Options
    Each branch of the military offers unique programs and career opportunities for students. Each branch has been invited to attend the fair and share their outlook with students.
