Career Resources for Young People
With the youth unemployment rate hovering around 16 percent, there’s a national need for resources that help teens and young adults explore careers, identify education options, and search for jobs. There are many general career and job search resources available. However, young people have unique career planning needs not always met by adult-focused materials. For instance, while adults often have a good idea of the types of careers they want to pursue, teens are candidates for step-by-step assessments and career exploration. Similarly, adults often have past job search and employment experiences to draw on, while young people benefit from more detailed information about the job-search process.
The U .S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (DOL/ETA), provides resources specifically designed to meet these needs for youth.
CareerOneStop's Students and Career Advisors section is designed for high-school students, parents, and career advisors. The website includes four key topics with links to relevant resources and information:
- Identify your Interests helps students understand their skills, interests, and talents — and see how they fit with specific careers.
- Explore Careers enables students to research occupations and industries and ask critical questions such as: What fields are likely to have the most openings? Which jobs might be the best fit for me? and How much money could I make?
- Get Work Experience offers resources to help plan a successful job search with a focus on resumes, interviews, internships, and more.
- Find Education Options includes information on how education pays off, where to find the right programs and schools, and how to pay for college or training programs.
- "I want to be a . . ." lets users search careers by keyword;
- "I'll know it when I see it" prompts users to browse careers by industry;
- "I'm not really sure" leads users through an online interest profiler and then suggests careers at match their interests and training.
