Here’s a link to Exploring Careers Virtually, a presentation that is full of resources and connections for young adults with disabilities and their families. It came from Youth Career Connect, a project of the US Department of Labor. It covers the topics listed below:
- How to connect students to the workplace virtually to learn about careers.
- How to navigate the CareerOneStop, Get My Future portal (structure and uses).
- Other platforms (free platforms; state-focused platforms; subscription sites)
What do you think? How can a young person explore a career like lab science, or office management, or welding, without going into the place where that job happens? Tell us about it.
