Texas Career Check: Career Search for High School Students
Texas Career Check’s website includes a career search for high school students and provides a ton of information on hundreds of different jobs—how much they pay, how popular they are, what you need to study in order to achieve them, etc.
The website includes great features, like:
- The "Occupation Trends" sections shows you which jobs are growing the fastest in Texas
- You can sort careers by average salary, popularity in the future, and more
- The "Military Occupations" page shows you different careers you can pursue in the military—and which branches of the armed forces have jobs in that area.
- The "Programs of Study" helps you find college majors you might like and lists colleges that offer that major across the country.
While it may seem early to be choosing a career, performing a career search while in high school is key to helping determine what sort of college debt is worth undertaking, what sort of college might best cater to your needs, and what electives to begin taking as early as high school.
