Career Clusters and Pathways

With so many career options available, where do you start?

Career Clusters

Use the 16 career clusters to organize your career search. Look at occupations, industries, and fields of study with common knowledge and skills before narrowing your search.

Career Pathways

Career Pathways are small groups of occupations within a career cluster. Explore the nearly 80 different pathways available and see how more education and training might help you move within a pathway.

Career Cluster Interest Assessment

Everyone has a different way to describe themselves and what they like to do. The career cluster assessment lets you rate activities you enjoy, your personal qualities, and school subjects you like. Then you can see which career clusters are a match for your interests.
