Explore Careers at Home With Your Child: A Resource for Connecting Interests to Careers
The process of exploring career options and interests begins in childhood, continuing through adolescence and into adulthood. In fact, middle school is the perfect time for children to start thinking about what they like, what they’re good at, and how their interests and skills relate to career options. Children who have begun exploring career options are in a good place to make informed choices about coursework and plans for the future.
O’Net online provides an activity you can do at home with your child to explore their interests and related careers. This activity helps children to learn about their interests and then provides them with a list of careers related to their specific interests. You can then learn more about these careers, including job responsibilities, salaries, required education, etc. The interest profiler only takes about five minutes to complete and provides a fun way for children to learn about themselves and new careers.
