The Jobs Y’all career exploration campaign and website launched in 2018 to raise awareness about the opportunities and benefits of Texas industries, to inspire and attract young Texans to explore careers, and understand the education and training needed to best position themselves for where the jobs will be when they enter the workforce.
This campaign, initiated by the Texas Workforce Commission, was developed in response to employer and industry feedback that the fast growing industries and occupations are not on the radar of young Texans who would benefit from understanding career opportunities and the education and training pathways needed to enter the workforce with the right skills. This website provides resources to help students, and their parents, teachers, counselors and mentors explore top industries and develop career goals.
Some of these resources include:
- Information on the top eight fastest growing Texas industries
- A Career Explorer page to link to other career exploration websites including Texas Career Check, Texas Reality Check, the Texas Internship Challenge and Texas OnCourse
- Career Success Stories from young professionals
- Information on where to locate activities, events and tours happening statewide
- Links to industry and employer online resources to learn more about specific opportunities and organizations to get involved with
- Industry-specific infographics for download and print featuring career opportunities and profiles
