A Career Advisor Using Career Voyages - Copyright © Justin NavarroCareer Voyages has lots of information to help you learn about different types of careers and the knowledge and skills needed to enter these careers as well as information about education and training opportunities to help you for a chosen career. A good resource to help with students still in high school is our Career Clusters section.

Career Voyages exists to help you find out which occupations are in-demand. To learn more about how these industries and occupations were selected, click here. This web site identifies those high demand occupations-many of which do not require years and years of schooling. In fact, there are lots of alternatives to a 4-year degree, including 2-year degrees, apprenticeships, vocational certificates, and work experience.
