Job Readiness

  When you were a child were you ever asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" We were all pretty creative back in our childhood days daydreaming about being Fireman, Nurses, Policemen, Teachers, Doctors, Cowboys, Princesses, etc. As adults, that same question is sometimes very difficult to answer. Many people enter employment at a young age and expect to retire from that company in 30 or 40 years. In today's job market, this expectation is easier said than done.  As a result of this, many adults are having to think of a second, third, or even fourth career to enter until they retire.

To help you along with this task, we have listed several informational websites that you can search and explore for more detailed information on careers. Just pick a link and begin exploring the careers that interest you.
