Some people know from an early age exactly what career they would like to have as adults — and how to get there. Others aren't sure, and that's okay too. This site will help you learn about careers and what education you’ll need to follow your career interests.
 
Your career may change a few times throughout your life, so what’s important now are your interests today.  In addition to taking classes and workshops, one of the best ways to explore your interests is to talk to industry professionals. Apprenticeships and work experiences are another great path to experience a job in your area of interest.
