The U.S. job market is evolving at its fastest pace in history. Emerging technologies are creating new career opportunities that seemed unimaginable a few years ago. One thing hasn’t changed, however: the need for a college education to land a high-paying job in STEM and other growth industries. A person with a high school diploma makes an average salary of $35,580 compared to an associate’s degree ($58,240) and bachelor’s degree ($68,190).

In this session, participants learn how to help students identify strengths and weaknesses that will be key in narrowing their job focus to lead them down a successful career path.
