When you’re looking for your first job, or what you’d like to be the first job on your own stairway to success, it helps to know not just where to start, but how to get from Point A to Point B. That means using career navigation to explore your options and make a plan.
While local career centers—and your local Goodwill — can help you navigate, there are plenty of resources online that you can use to explore careers, develop skills and even earn credentials. Here are just a few.
To follow up on your work with GoodProspects and to take the next step in your career journey, contact your local Goodwill.
You may also be able to find career navigation resources and platforms by searching for resources for your state; these will likely be supported by the state university or community college system and will be more specific to the local labor market and employment needs of your community.
Using these resources, and the host of others out there, will help you pinpoint the next steps to take, whether you are simply exploring your options or you’re ready to begin applying for your first job.
