GMMS CAREER PLANNING

Entering the workforce after graduation is more than just finding a job.

Making sure your skills match your career choice and the job opportunities available is key to success in the workforce after middle and high school. Students considering job search after graduation should make sure they have the right information about employer expectations, pay and benefits, training opportunities, and industry trends.

Our guidance counselors have compiled a list of resources to help prepare students for the world of work and a career after high school. Whether your next step involves service in the military or a full-time job, use the tools on the left side of the page to gain a better understanding of the path ahead. Use Naviance to explore career information, take interest inventories, and watch “Road Trip Nation” interviews.

As a culmination of our Middle School Career Journey, every 8th grade student will participate in a Career Day in the spring of their 8th grade year to help explore and ask questions of industry leaders in our community.
