College Information
Planning Your Dreams
This is the website that I use with 8th grade students to explore careers. They have usernames and passwords to access this site. They use it to complete assessments on what careers would be good based on interests, skills, and work habits. They can also explore careers, colleges, financial aid information, and more. It is a very helpful website that I would recommend using. There are tools that each student can use. For example, a student can begin to build a resume using this website.
