The First Step In Starting A Career

This is Print View - Back to Normal View

Our public education (in my opinion) is to blame that there are far too many young people who do not posses the education needed to start a quality career. The first step is education and that education starts with public school. However, the majority of high schools are not equipped with the needed equipment nor work tools to provide such a vitally needed education. Therefore, the majority of students become bored or give up adding to the lack of undiscovered talent.

Thankfully, there is a place people can go to find where their talents lay undiscovered. Many metropolitan cities offer free government sponsored career centers that offer free basic computer skills such as

  • How to use Microsoft Word
  • How to create and use an email address
  • How to use your email address in job searches

A career assistance center can also assist with resumes and job hunting strategy skills. Lastly, a counselor can help you chose as well as help with the process of enrolling in a vocational or college course.

Unfortunately, almost every city that has these centers are named differently from one state to anther.

California: One-Stop Centers 

Alaska: Job Center Network 

Washington: Work Force

Florida: Work Force Innovation 

Texas: Work Source (also called Work Force) Career Center 

For other states go to Service Locater
