Career Assessment & Planning

 Review the websites listed for helpful information about your area of need or interest. 

Virginia Career View provides up-to-date information on post-secondary education, occupational outlook, work requirements, salaries, military training, apprenticeship information and licensure.

The Occupational Outlook Handbook is published by the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It describes what workers do on the job, working conditions, the training and education needed, earnings, and projected job outlook in a wide range of occupations.

Virginia’s Education Wizard helps students navigate the process of selecting careers, finding majors, estimating the cost of college, finding and applying for financial aid and scholarships, and planning for transfer from a community college to a four-year institution. The VE Wizard can help you identify occupations that match the skill sets you have and the skills you plan to attain.
