Sure there will be family gatherings, football games to watch and shopping this weekend. However, you might also have some time to consider your future and explore your career choices. Even if you have a job, do you have a career? Is it a job you love? Or are you thinking there might be something better out there for you?

After listening to advice from uncles, aunts and grandparents, take some time to think about what you want. What kind of work would you find rewarding? Do you prefer working with your hands or with your mind? Are you a team player or a lone wolf? Use this Career Interest Questionnaire to identify which career clusters might be a good fit for you and careers you may find most fulfilling.

It’s really simple and won’t take much time. You’ll receive the results quickly. Then you can start digging deeper to learn what education or training you need to pursue those careers. Our website will help you with information about career programs, emerging careers, flexible learning options and types of degrees and diplomas.

You’ll find videos showing what is involved in different careers, possible occupations related to degrees and diplomas and what you can expect to earn in that field. The site will also show you the Wisconsin technical colleges that offer the occupational programs you are investigating.

Start the New Year with a new career goal or by following this process to begin your future career.
