Career Exploration During a Pandemic

Career Navigator logoThe 2020–21 school year has been especially difficult for everyone! COVID-19 restrictions have put a halt to interactive, hands-on exploration activities for high school students.
 
In partnership with South Central College, South Central Perkins Consortium and South Central Service Cooperative have created the Virtual Career Navigator program for the 2020–21 school year.
 
For the last several years, Career Navigator has been a hands-on, career exploration event for regional ninth grade students hosted at South Central College in North Mankato and Faribault. This year’s virtual event will start the week of Jan. 25 and run through the week of March 22. 
 
Each participating district will have their own launch week where students can access the Virtual Career Navigator program website and view a keynote address presented by the Greater Mankato Diversity Council, visit the exhibit hall and watch videos created by our industry partners. 
 
These videos are organized by career field which will allow students to explore fields they are interested in and investigate fields they never thought about!
