Congrats on finding your top three career choices!

Now, let's discover what kind of post secondary options are out there for those careers. Post- Secondary options refer to colleges, certifications, military or anything you may consider earning or doing after graduating from high school.

If you've always thought you would attend a four year university after graduating, try expanding your options and look into a certification so you know the pros and cons of both paths! The options that exist are endless and we want you to be able to see that you have so many to chose from. 

For this activity we are going to use the career: Accountant for our example. But, please use your top career choices. 

To complete this assignment please use the Journeys Map Learn More pages. 

TIP: If you know how to navigate there please skip past steps one and two.
