Another excellent website is EnScholar.com which is a free career exploration tool.  It is a depository of various short videos profiling careers and some tools to help you choose which careers might be best suited for you.  For those students interested in a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), they may want to try Try.Enscholar.com .  In addition, to videos on careers, it shows what opportunities are available to get some experience in a chosen field, including scholarships, internships, and competitions. 

If you have any questions or would like some help in what career opportunities are available for you during your high school years and after high school, come into the Careers Centre and have a chat with either Ms. Shaylene Wilson our student counselors, Mr. Ian Watson and Mrs. Langton.
