Career & Employment Information

MHS provides various career exploration opportunities for students. Teachers incorporate career information into lessons while also sharing job opportunities during our Career Share Days. Freshmen students are introduced to Career Cruising in order to assess their interests and then be matched with career options. School counselors then meet with students to discuss their career matches and create a four-year plan based on their future interests. Junior students create a Career Action Plan, discussing interests, abilities, and experiences connecting to potential careers. Students are asked to create an action plan detailing their steps after high school graduation in order to achieve future goals. Both short-term and long-term goals are created and discussed. If students are unsure of their future plans, they have the opportunity to meet individually with their counselor or be a part of a small group in order to explore and connect to additional career and college resources. 


These sites have been used as a tool for career exploration with information about occupations, educational requirements, and future professional growth.

CAREER CRUISING-MHS students have accounts to access personal portfolios including career interests, detailed career information, and programs offered at colleges across the nation.

MAPPING YOUR FUTURE-Free resource for career, college, financial aid, and money management information.


JOB CORPS- Information about career technical (vocational) training, and employability skills along with career opportunities.
