This week, the CareerForce spotlight is on Career Solutions in St. Cloud! Staff at this Leading CareerForce partner offer an intensive and exciting 3-day, 9-hour career exploration workshop called Career Trek that helps job seekers create a vision for their future. Career Trek is making a big difference in the lives of those looking for work now. Here’s what some recent program participants had to say about Career Trek.
“Career Trek got me thinking about other careers I might never have thought of.”
“Learning the different resources and given a ray of hope was helpful.”
“I wish I had this in high school!”
Career Trek helps participants identify strengths and interests, explore careers, and begin setting goals for their employment future. After they successfully complete the 3-day workshop, participants have a clearer understanding of themselves and careers that match their profile, the career paths available to them and how to pursue them, plus the value they have to offer employers.
Career Solutions first offered Career Trek to adults more than two decades ago and added a program for teens this summer after hearing from so many participants that they wished they’d had access to that kind of career exploration info when they were in high school.
Career Trek was recognized as a promising practice early this summer by the Minnesota Association of Workforce Boards.
