Career Exploration is simply learning about various occupations and their "fit" with your unique career preferences, e.g. the skills, interests and values you want satisfied by your career. Self exploration and research can assist with this process. It allows you to tailor your coursework and education to your post secondary goals.
An excerpt from our Xello partner on “Career Exploration”…
According to e-learning company, Applied Educational Systems, career exploration in education can be defined as, “the process of researching, evaluating, and learning about modern work opportunities and how students can pursue the careers of their choice.”
A career exploration program enables students to gain insight into potential careers. Students learn what skills are necessary for a particular career and what those who are in the profession do as part of their job. With this information, students can imagine themselves in careers that suit them.
