This year you’ll take the first steps to think about what kind of career you might enjoy. Learning about your interests and how they fit within one of the nationally recognized Career Clusters is a great starting point to explore occupations. Career Clusters group careers or occupations with common features (like knowledge and skills) together into topic areas. Each cluster includes a variety of career options to show you what you might expect in terms of necessary education as well as an outlook for pay and growth opportunities.
Take the Career Cluster Interest Survey linked below to see which cluster might be right for you. Finding a cluster that interests you can help you map out your high school classes to focus on related subjects. Once you complete the survey, review your results then come back here to reflect on your top three Career Clusters.
