When you were 18, what was your answer when you were asked, "what are you going to study in college?" or "what's your plan after high school?"
Believe it or not, only 45 percent of senior high school students felt positive about being career ready, meaning the majority of high school seniors don?t know what they plan to study or even pursue as a career once they receive their acceptance letter.
According to the ACT's The Condition of College & Career Readiness 2016 report, when high school students were given a list of 294 majors, twenty-four percent indicated that they were either undecided or they did not select a major of interest.
Fortunately, since 2015, more than 300,000 teens have engaged with JA My Way. This online platform engages high school students to start thinking about their career. It helps teens explore possible career paths, discover factors that they should consider when choosing a career, and learn to utilize job-hunting tools.
