CAREER LADDERS

POWER-PACKED CAREER PLANNING TOOLS

 

When it comes to career planning - for both students and adults - it 's hard to plan the trip if you don 't know where you 're going!

Without straightforward information about training, advancement, job outlook, working conditions, wages, job description, and words of wisdom from people who already hold a particular career - as well as those who do the hiring - even the best of us can get lost.

The goal is to demonstrate the viability of the following high demand careers and to help area employers build a more-qualified workforce. Why? Because the economic health of our region depends on it! The Career Ladders show young people, unemployed adults, and job seekers a clear picture of how to enter and advance in the following occupations.
