Watching on-line videos or reading a book is a good start to learning about jobs, but it is not enough to empower your teen to choose a career path that will lead to long-term satisfaction. Even though a profession sounds interesting, it may not align with your teen’s strengths or lifestyle goals, or they may find out they don’t enjoy the work environment. For example, many teens want to become a professional athlete because the pros make a lot of money and it sounds really fun. However, not everyone has a realistic shot at making it in professional sports. However, they may have other skill sets and interests that allow them to work within the professional sports world – just maybe not as an athlete. We’ve done a lot of research, organized it into a step-by-step road map, and provided assessments that connect your teens interests, lifestyle goals, strengths and work culture preferences to careers. Quick on-line videos about various careers do not provide a clear understanding of what those careers are really like. They also fail to help your teen understand that key factors that lead to career satisfaction are different for each individual and affect life choices and the required salary. That’s one of the major reasons we developed these resources. We wanted to make a complete set of career resources that are practical and really help teens understand all the aspects of choosing a career, including whether or not that career will still be viable in 10, 15, or 20 years.
