Students will engage in college and career research and exploration.
They will determine which college is best suited for their career choice. They will explore the cost, degree choices, how many credit hours needed to graduate, internship availability, and job placement opportunities.
Through career assessment, personality evaluations and research, students will explore the best career suited for them. They will be looking at everything from compatibility, hiring and salary trends, time commitment and financial investments. Students will be equipped to make informed career choices.
Providing mentoring is an important part of career exploration and exposure. At Project VERB, students will be partnered with a mentor in their field/career of interest to provide guidance, invaluable information, and to serve as a resource. Mentors will work closely with Project VERB coordinators to provide opportunities for career immersion via job shadowing and internships, as well onsite visits and college exploration.
