Video Explanation of How D.O. Works
“It helps to see someone doing something they like and enjoy. I have different interests but I do like working hands on. Learning this story shows me I can do what I want.”
Why Career Exploration Matters
When you explore a variety of career videos and learn about the pathways to them, you get a broad sense of what is “out there” and over time, you can determine which career path makes sense for you. The goal is for you to find a career that fits your skills, interests and personality! The O*NET Interest Profiler can help you find out what your interests are and find out how they related to the world of work.
