"The worst thing about today's educational culture is that students are encouraged to decide what they want to 'be when they grow up' but aren't given an accurate representation of what that really means," commented Jennifer Charleston, spokesperson for CareerToolKits.com. "Students need to know more about the work environment and the nature of their future responsibilities when deciding what major to concentrate on in college. That is why CareerToolKits.com provides so much information about such a variety of fields—we want our kids to know what they are getting into and love the job they get after graduation."
The information that is presented on CareerToolKits.com explores several different aspects of a long list of professions. From legal careers to those with a more creative bent, CareerToolKits.com provides data on work environments, educational requirements, salaries, and more. In fact, the website will even help interested individuals find schools that have programs in their desired field, as well as financial aid.
"It is important that students know exactly what they are getting into," Charleston said. "Many of the students in college tend to romanticize their future jobs, even if they do not realize it. Being a medical professional is not always like a scene from a movie or popular television show. Likewise, being a lawyer does not always entail giving riveting speeches in court and celebrating big wins. Students know they need to work to be successful, but they need to know more about that work they will be doing before committing to their studies. By understanding the amount of money they will be making, the conditions in which they will be working, and the education they must receive before they can gain the certification they need, students will be better prepared to embark on their professional journeys. We hope that this will also allow them to choose careers that they enjoy."
Many students have opted to stay in school because of the down job market and difficulty that professionals are facing finding jobs. By using the information available at CareerToolKits.com, students can use this time to gain the proper certification and/or degree before trying to find a position in a down economy.
