Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to fill out the Career Exploration Guide (CEG)?

Whether you are considering training or not, an effective job search requires you know what skills and background are needed for the job, and what the current labor market demand is for those skills. Training involves a significant commitment of your time and resources, so it is important you have good information so you can get back to work in the least amount of time. The Career Exploration Guide (CEG) is a tool to help you make an informed decision about pursuing a specific occupation and to determine if you need additional skills. The CEG will help you ask:  
    • What skills are needed in the current job market? 
    • Is this occupation right for me? 
    • Are employers hiring for this occupation? 
    • Do I have the skills and background to make me a good fit?
