Career Planning

Thank you for participating in this Career Awareness Activity during Career Week. It is always exciting learning new things about ourselves. The first objective is for you to identify your Career Interest. The second is to understand how the Internet is a valuable tool for exploring Careers and assisting you in identifying your educational and employment goals while attending Merced Adult School.


These instructions will guide you through to complete our activity today and for future use for yourself and for your children. It is never too early to identify goals that will assist us in pursuing a positive future. If you would like more information please see Miguel Hernandez, MAS Transition Specialist in the Student Support Services building or call 325-2809.
