As we go through life working various jobs, trying to find the one that best fits our strength and weaknesses as well as our likes and dislikes, it can get confusing. After attending training and pondering a question that the instructor asked, what is the main reason we go to school? This question comes up many times throughout the school year, asked by students and teachers alike. Sometime with all the math, science, and communication arts it’s easy to overlook that career readiness is probably the most important. After all is said and done in a child’s education, they need to be able to find employment in an area that they can succeed. A great place to begin the career process is with Missouri Connections and using all the features of http://www.missouriconnections.org. Missouri Connections is place where a user can create a profile of interest inventories, job search activities, post-secondary planning, and overall career planning. One neat feature is the reality check where a person can chose a career; analyze the salary, requirements to do the job, and see if they can support the lifestyle they want with the chosen career. The site is for students and adults as well. If anyone is interested exploring the site more or has questions, feel free to contact me. It takes an active approach by students, school, parents, and community for career readiness to reach its full potential.
