Career Planning & Vo-Tech

Many high school graduates enroll in trade, vocational, technical and business schools for one or two years before seeking employment. Others may go directly to work but continue their training as they work by enrolling in apprentice programs, business college courses, university extension courses, and public school community education courses available in the area.

Just as it is not wise to choose a college without counseling with people who know colleges, it is not wise to choose business or trade schools without complete information about them. The standing of the school with employers, a clear understanding of its costs and its programs, and the placement and follow-up services are all are factors in making an intelligent choice. Students interested in these opportunities should consult with their counselors in developing plans for their future.
