5 Career Readiness Projects with Top Colleges Parents Need to Know About

In today's world, where competition is fierce and time is of the essence, it's more important than ever that parents help their children prepare for college and their future careers.

A survey of over 500 students revealed that the majority, 75%, did not have the tools to make informed decisions regarding their college and career paths.

To assist parents in helping their children make educated decisions, we have put together a list of the top college and career readiness projects they should be aware of.

Help your child gain real-world experience and build their resume by supporting their search for an internship. Many colleges and universities have their own programs and companies offer internships directly to students. According to the NSCI 2021 report, internships are becoming more popular, and summer 2023 internships will see a 9.1% increase.

Uncover the key steps to building the best resume for high schoolers searching for internships in our blog.  

  • Career and Technical Education (CTE) Programs

CTE is a great way for your child to explore potential careers, from welding to nursing. It can help them get a head start on their education and future. 12 million students have already joined the program in the US.

  • Dual Enrollment Programs

They are a great way for teens to get an early start on college-level courses while in high school. Not only do they get a jumpstart on their college education, but they can also save money on tuition. 88% of high schools offer this opportunity, and 34% of U.S. students take advantage of it—perfect for those who are academically advanced or want to try college-level coursework before committing to a four-year degree.

  • College Preparation Programs

Transitioning to college can be tough, but don't worry. College prep programs can make it easier with test prep, college apps, financial aid help, and advice on choosing the right college and major. You can find them in high schools, community organizations, and colleges/universities- great for first-generation students or those who need extra help.

Our blog can help you make sure your child is ready for college and life after school.

  • Career Exploration Programs

Support your child in finding the right career path; explore different options with professional agencies like InternMart. Their career exploration program can help you understand your child's interests and abilities, and provide advice on job opportunities and the skills needed. Plus, it can help them get in touch with employers and apply for jobs. A career exploration program can ensure your child is making the right choices for the future.
