Career Exploration

Career Cruising

Career Cruising is designed to help students become aware of themselves and explore how their unique patterns of interests, skills and values can be applied in their career.  It also helps them become aware of the relevance of how their current educational experiences serve as the foundation for future career aspirations and life path so they can develop the job-seeking skills needed to acquire meaningful employment and make successful transitions into and throughout the world of work.
