Career Consortium Resources: General Resources
This guide is designed to connect partnership high schools to FHTC resources.
This resources connects you to a collection of classes that Kansas Technical Colleges, Kansas Community Colleges, and Kansas Trade Schools currently offer virtually and will lead to the successful completion of programs leading to four year degrees, two year degrees, industry certifications, military experience, or high paying jobs.
The mission of HirePaths is to inform and excite parents and guardians about options their child can pursue after high school to quickly and affordably launch a successful, well-paying career. This includes on-the-job training programs, apprenticeships, and technical and community college education.
This program does not duplicate efforts already being carried out in various industry sectors but will connect and magnify the impact of each.
"The mission of Kansas CTE is to provide students with relevant contexts for learning through pathways to college and career readiness. Career Clusters link what students learn in school to the knowledge and skills they need for success in post-secondary education and careers. The Workforce Development unit focuses efforts and resources to prepare workers for careers in Kansas’ highest-priority fields, such as health care, advanced manufacturing/aviation, energy, and health sciences. Education and skills are the keys not only to individual prosperity but also the economic vitality and quality of life for Kansas."

Interest Fields- O*Net
How to use these documents:
Using the description select your main area of interests when it comes to a career. The file will give you a list of jobs with that primary description and then secondary (and sometimes third category) listings based on the first letter of the job category. For example: A-E-R would be primary interest: Artistic, Secondary: Enterprising; Third: Realistic.
Once you have located one or more jobs that fit your interest, you can explore those job categories more fully at O*Net Online (link above) where the interest categories were compiled from.
Conventional occupations frequently involve following set procedures and routines. These occupations can include working with data and details more than with ideas. Usually there is a clear line of authority to follow.
Enterprising occupations frequently involve starting up and carrying out projects. These occupations can involve leading people and making many decisions. Sometimes they require risk taking and often deal with business
Realistic occupations frequently involve work activities that include practical, hands-on problems and solutions. They often deal with plants, animals, and real-world materials like wood, tools, and machinery. Many of the occupations require working outside, and do not involve a lot of paperwork or working closely with others
