Career Planning for High School Students: Ensuring Long-Term Financial Wellness & Happiness
Course Information
Content Level: Foundational
NAPFA Subject Area: A-Financial Planning Process
Course Description

Some high school students do not devote adequate time or effort to college or career choices. Yet, the choices they make will largely define their long-term financial wellness and overall happiness in life. With the average college student assuming $32,000 in student loan debt and only 40% of college-bound students graduating on time, there is a need for better career planning programs within high schools. This webinar will outline a process to better prepare high school students to make informed decisions about their chosen careers and college. Better career preparation will lead to lower overall student loan debt, on-time graduation, and an improved capacity to save and invest for long-term goals.

Learning Objectives
  1. Understand the long-term implications of not adequately applying a career planning process during high school and throughout life.
  2. Identify the critical elements of exploring and choosing a “best fit” career.
  3. Learn why relying on interests alone does not ensure career success and satisfaction for high school students.
