Career Center Director: Mr. Hosey
The Career Center, located in the
north side of the library, serves as a doorway to college
admissions and career pathways. You can quickly find information
for most any occupation or school. What's out there? How do you
decide? What sort of education will it take? How can I find the
money to get the education I need for the job I want to do? You can
learn about planning your career path, making your career decision,
measuring your talents and skills, and find many resources to help
you get started.
Students may utilize the CHOICES
software program to assist with their research. CHOICES engages the
student in an interactive process which heightens self-awareness,
helps set priorities, and develops career decision-making skills.
This program also connects information about occupations to related
programs/majors and to schools offering those programs. Students
are able to access an interest inventory, skills inventory, and
information on financial aid and scholarships. CHOICES has a direct
link to the Internet where students may apply on-line to schools,
and they may also access information about current job availability
and the world-of-work.
In addition to occupational and
educational information, community service information is available
in the Career Center. This includes the forms to record your
community service, as well as places to volunteer.
Whether you need information about a
particular occupation, college, university, vocational school,
financial aid or scholarship information, test preparation
materials, or anything else to help you prepare for your future,
the MHS Career Center is the place to check out. The center is open
during the regular school hours or appointments can be made for
other times by calling 601-484-4438.
