Researching different careers is a key component to developing a post-graduate plan. Students can go online and review the basic components of different professions, including educational requirements, training, earnings, and projected job growth. This information is available through our Naviance program as well as  in the Occupational Outlook Handbook, published online by the US Department of Labor.
