Connecting Your Students to Career Experiences
Developing a career pathway and gaining on-the-job experience
is critical to the future success of New Mexico's students and our workforce talent
Internships and other career exploration opportunities provide students
with the opportunity to attain essential workplace skills that support career
readiness competencies employers are asking for in their job descriptions.
Some of the most important decisions our youth will have to make involve
their education, occupation and job. Experience in the workplace during middle,
high school and college will not only empower them to make sound choices but
also give them the opportunity to apply what they are learning in the classroom.
Are you interested in pointing your students to resources that will help them
with their future job success and career pathway development?
