As a parent, I want the best for all of my children. I want them to live a happy, healthy and fulfilling life. As our oldest gets closer and closer to graduating from high school, the challenge of finding a job becomes more real…to both her and us as her parents. The same feelings will follow as each of our 6 kids gets closer to finding a career. I remember being in high school and taking quizzes to see what fields I would be interested in when it came to finding a career. 

Today, our kids are put on educational tracks, where they take classes that would help them get experience and education in the field they would like to have a job in. While that is helpful, there is still something missing. That’s where GraduationSource comes into play.

Many students graduate high school or college with little or no idea about what they really want to do for a career. Ideally, they’d love to find a job that they love! Just as we’re starting to prepare our kids for college, we should also be preparing and helping them think about their future job plans.

If you have students who are looking for where to start here’s a great infographic to help lead the way.

What’s great is that this doesn’t just go for students, but also for moms or dads trying to get back in the work force! After all, it’s never too late to pursue your passions. With enough motivation and determination, you might surprise yourself!

    This is a great idea. I wish this had been around when I graduated. I had no idea what to do with myself when I got out of school.

  8. Bill Sweeney says:

    I’m surprised no one came up with this sooner. There is a real need to help kids find their way after school. It’s a jungle out there.

  9. Marcie W. says:

    Deciding what to do with your life can be tricky, especially for teens or young adults. I certainly changed career paths more than once before finding my passion.

  10. I don’t know where my daughters will go but I know for sure I’ll be their number 1 supporter. Love that there’s help out there for kids that need it.

  11. Joely Smith says:

    Love this! It is so hard to decide for some. Not everyone is born with a “passion”. Some feel like they simply do not connect with any one route. I love that this gives better direction!

  12. Liz Mays says:

    It can definitely be challenging to find direction after school. Graduates can definitely benefit from some guidance!

  13. Pam says:

    It can be hard to decide what you want to do for the rest of your life. I will have to check out Graduation Source. My nephew is in high school so he would benefit from this resource.

  14. GraduationSource seems like a good place for help when you need it! College can be overwhelming!

  15. Lisa Favre says:

    I wonder what choice my stepsister will be taking. I’ll have to tell her about GraduationSource!

  16. Ali Rost says:

    This sounds like such a great resource! I remember being that age and thinking “what should I do with my life?”

  17. Jeanine says:

    This sounds really awesome. I am sure it will help many people! Which I hear they really need, so that is awesome!

  18. This is amazing! Such a good resource for graduates.

  19. rika says:

    Sounds like a great place for graduates. I want to go back to school again, but still don’t have time and energy.

  20. Catvills says:

    This is good to hear. I have a niece who’s still undecided and she’s graduating from high school soon.

  21. HilLesha says:

    This sounds like a great resource! My son has talked about being an archaeologist, but I understand that he is young (11) and has plenty of time ahead of him before he decides what career path to follow.

  22. Karlyn Cruz says:

    Glad to know this! My nephew still undecided what he wanted to be after the graduation, I’ll go to share it with him.

  23. This is a great service to take advantage of. I wish I knew about this when my children were in that stage of life. My daughter however, always wanted to be a banker, so she followed her dream and graduated with a degree in Economics. I think Graduation source will help our youth to find the most appropriate career that would help them develop their talent and hone their skills.

  24. This is awesome! Would love to share this with my mom friends with graduating teens.

  25. I have one about to graduate this year and she has already decided upon her career path and is taking college courses to give her an edge on the competition. The job market is so competitive you need to know where you are going the sooner the better.

  26. Maria han says:

    Thank you for a brilliant idea. This post is very helpful. Nowadays, finding jobs is very hard. One of the reason is, they hard to find a job that suit to them.

  27. This is a very enlightening article. The infographic alone is very appealing and keeps you interested, as it has very good content.

  28. Kathy says:

    This sounds great! What a wonderful service. I’ll have to check this out more when my girls are a bit older too!

  29. uprunforlife says:

    I will have to share this resource with my older son. He is a freshman and wants to go into law enforcement. But depending on some medical results, this might not be the best career move. We shall see.

  30. Rosey says:

    My daughter graduates this year, so this is awesome timing for me. She’s pretty sure about what she wants to study in college, but we’ll see how it goes once it starts. I know many students change their major a time or two once they begin courses. πŸ™‚

  31. This sounds like a great service! It is so hard to find jobs now, especially for those just entering the workforce for the very first time.

  32. Crystal says:

    I jumped right into a career right after college. It was good not to flounder, but I wish I had spent more time getting myself on the right path.

  33. Emma Spellman says:

    I don’t have to worry about that for awhile, but when my kids do get older I just want them to follow their hearts. I won’t put any pressure on them at all. I wish I knew what I wanted to do when I got out of school. I was clueless.

  34. Victoria Heckstall says:

    Wow! This is helpful, I know that my niece still undecided what she want a dream job, this will be perfect for her.

  35. aziel morte says:

    As a parent, you’re always looking out for your children. Although they … graduates get clear on making a career choice and be successful in their job search

  36. Sara says:

    What a great resource for kids graduating college! SO many who graduate do not know what jobs are available to them.

  37. I will check this out. I’ve learned that volunteering teach\es the best lessons about careers. Volunteering really allows us to see what we really like and what we don’t like. – yolonda

  38. Gabriel says:

    Ours haven’t really made any choices yet. My oldest messed around with school for a bit before following me and my father into the military as a starting point.

  39. ellen beck says:

    This looks helpful. So many really dont know what they want to do, and even after they are n a course they decide it isnt for them. This would help parents, kids and even job changers.
