How do I start learning about careers?

Texas Career Check is a great place to start career exploration. Take a quiz to identify occupations relevant to your interests. Conduct a side-by-side occupation comparison. Learn which occupations will be in demand in years to come. Then, research and compare education options to find the training program, college, or university that's right for you. Finally, create a personal graduation plan to share with your counselor.
