MajorClarity - Exploring Careers & Colleges
Roanoke County Public Schools is proud to partner with MajorClarity. MajorClarity is an organization that connects career pathways with academic planning in a way that maximizes student engagement and saves countless time and money around career and college planning and tracking.
Each Roanoke County student is given a username and password which can be found on their Blackboard account under the Cave Spring High School Counseling News organization - the MajorClarity tab. This will allow the student to log in and explore MajorClarity and all the wonderful resources the program has to offer. On the student's account they are allowed to save their work or research on their profile to help plan their goals.
On this site students have the opportunity to take career and personality interest assessments that can help identify potential plans after high school! In addition, there are over 57 career paths students may explore. Each career path identifies educational requirements for specific jobs in that field and goes into great detail about the tasks, wages, expected job growth, and skills related to a specific job. Students can also build their resume on this program.
Additionally, in the Summer of 2020 Major Clarity has added the Top 100 Professions in the Commonwealth by median pay and the education, training, and skills required for each such profession and the Top 10 Degree Programs at institutions of higher education in the Commonwealth by median pay of program graduates. In order to see these documents students will go to the "My Portfolio" tab of their Major Clarity account and scroll to the bottom to find the documents.
Please encourage your student to utilize this great resource to help better prepare them for life after high school!
