GPS for Success is a new multi-platform website that students and underemployed adults will use to learn about career opportunities, income potential and education/training requirements in 16 career clusters identified locally and nationally as experiencing a shortage of skilled workers entering the workforce. The website features digital content showcasing the careers as a distinct group of occupations and industries based on the knowledge and skills they require.
The goal is to help educators and students of all ages explore different career development options and better prepare them for college and/or a vocational career. The website will be used by education providers, employment and training agencies, students and underemployed adults to learn about the identified career opportunities, income potential and education/training requirements, in all 16 of the career clusters in our area, where there is a shortage of skilled workers.
