My Next Move website is a great website by O*NET Online. This site has three search tools:
1.) “I want to be a…” section helps students explore whatever career they type in the search box.
2.) “I’ll know it when I see it…” section helps students browse careers by various industries, which are in the drop-down menu.
3.) “I’m not really sure…” section helps students evaluate possible interests areas by completing the Interest Profiler.
This site is a quick and easy way for students to explore various careers they are interested in, so when they have some extra time with “nothing to do,” have them log on and see what is involved in their possible interest areas.
For example, if you type in carpenter, you get a list of different careers in carpentry. Just one of the career options gives you the information below:
So, bookmark this easy-to-use site for your child/student to explore!
