Students can be provided with information concerning work-based learning, current employment trends, and labor market information.
High school students and adults have access to career counseling services, and post-secondary college advisement. Our Student Services Team works to give our area students, counselors, teachers and administrators the needed tools, for preparing, and conducting career development programs. We encourage our area students to explore programs of greatest interest. We provide a variety of resources for career exploration. We help students build online portfolios using OKCareerGuide https://okcareerguide.kuder.com; and OKCollegeStart https://www.okcollegestart.org/Home/Sign_In/Logon.aspx . We use these, State approved, online, career interest inventories to help guide students into viable Career Cluster Pathways.
