Entering the Workforce

  • If it is your intention to join the work force upon graduation, there are a number of things you can do to explore your options:

    • Review your career results from Naviance Student. Throughout your years in Counseling Seminar you took a Career Interest Inventory, Personality Type Assessment, Multiple Intelligence Assessment, Career Cluster Finder, and Strength Explorer- all of which provided you with a list of careers that may be of interest to you based on your results.  They provide detailed information on what skills are expected in a job, amount of education required, typical salary and more.
    • Schedule an appointment with Mrs. Stern- BHS College & Career Counelor. She is a great resource on jobs available to students during and after high school.
    • Visit the Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) online at http://www.bls.gov/ooh/ . The OOH is a career resource offering information on hundreds of occupations.  Each occupational profile describes the duties required by the occupation, the work environment of that occupation, the typical education and training needed to enter the occupation, the median pay for workers in the occupation, and the job outlook into the next 10 years for that occupation.


    There are many careers that are in great need of skilled employees - check out some of the resources below!
