Career and College: A new way of thinking



Career and college may seem like a long way off but it is not too early for students to be exploring interests and talents and learning about career fields in those areas.

Bloomington students start exploring careers in middle school and have opportunities for internship or mentorship experiences in high school. By aligning high school courses and activities in a career pathway students can choose the education or training that best fits with their career goals.

Many in-demand jobs don’t require a four-year degree -- in fact, in Minnesota, only 22 percent of available jobs do. There are many postsecondary options including traditional four-year colleges, technical or trade colleges, apprenticeships, on-the-job training or military service.

Bloomington Public Schools is committed to helping all students make informed choices for high school, develop a post high school plan and graduate prepared for college and career success.
