OhioMeansJobs offers new K-12 Dynamic Pathways Tool

4/8/2019

Exploring occupations in OhioMeansJobs has never been easier. The Phase I release of the Dynamic Pathways Tool in OhioMeansJobs now is available in OhioMeansJobs K-12.
 
Using national data from the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), each occupation offers a snapshot of salary, education and labor market information, with links to more detailed workforce data from the OhioMeansJobs occupation webpages. Career pathways are typical paths individuals might use to become employable in certain occupations. The tool lets users easily see career clusters by viewing 16 career pathways.   
 
The Dynamic Pathways Tool is available from several access points in the OhioMeansJobs K-12 website, allowing educators to develop lesson plans for different exploration scenarios during the career awareness, exploration and planning process. From the tool, students also can sign up for backpack accounts to save different career plans they have developed, as well as other information.
