What is Destination Occupation?
Destination Occupation takes a complex problem (making a career choice) and solves it in a concrete way. We create relevant and relatable videos using “authentic story telling” to educate about and attract people into career paths that are a good fit for them. Video is the perfect way to communicate complex content in a clear and concise way because the brain processes visual information 60,000 times faster than the speed of text!
Employers featured on our site tell their employees’ stories and educate people about who they are, what they do, and why a career path to their company is desirable.
Educators and job coaches use our videos and resources to help people make better informed career and education choices. Our videos and associated resources connect students and job seekers to education and career planning resources. Teachers can earn Professional Development contact hours towards re-certification simply by learning how to use the Destination Occupation website, videos, lesson plan templates and resources.
Everyone is busy and, for that reason, career exploration videos are an efficient use of time. In under 2 hours, students and job seekers can get an insider’s view of over a dozen Maine companies and learn about dozens of different careers. The videos feature stories from real Maine people talking about their job and the skills, interests and personalities that make each job a unique fit. Our videos feature dynamic employers who are hiring for jobs that are in high demand all over Maine.
