Hello Class of 2024!
Your freshman year of high school is now behind you. I know that most of you are looking forward to what the next few years bring. As the College and Career Counselor, I will meet with you to discuss the wonderful resources we have to support you: the PNHS College & Career Center website and Naviance, our college and career research and planning tool.
This year, you will complete the Career Cluster Finder in Naviance, which will allow you to match your interests, strengths, and personal qualities with potential careers. From there, you will learn more about those careers, including daily tasks and wages. We will also ask you to “Favorite” any careers that interested you, and then use Naviance to explore potential college majors and colleges with that major (and narrow down your search by criteria such as college location and size). We have more information listed on the PNHS College & Career Center website about colleges, military, and trade schools.
If you are interested in learning more about careers, you can use Naviance to take the Career Interest Profiler or explore the Road Trip Nation. You can also check out other Career Planning Resources we have available on the PNHS website.
For a checklist of tasks we recommend completing by grade level, check out the College & Career Planning Checklist.
As always, the Counselors and I are happy to support you and answer your questions at any time. Please feel free to contact me or the other counselors if there is anything we can help you with.
Have a wonderful school year!
