8/26/2014

Teachers and school counselors have an exciting, robust online tool to guide students through job and career exploration. OhioMeansJobs K-12 is a no-cost career planning resource that focuses on opportunities available in Ohio. This tool lets students create a profile of their interests. It also provides career information, a plan and budget for education and training, possible occupations and potential salaries. Get students started at OhioMeansJobs.com and click on the K-12 icon (cardinal with a graduation cap). On the site, click on the “Explore It” menu, which includes an interest survey for middle school, a profile for the student’s interests, a search feature for occupations, earnings and training and a budget tool for living on your own. This tool replaces the former Ohio Career Information System and is available to any student and school in Ohio.
