Students Taking Career Planning to the Next Level

It's called Florida Choices, and it’s sparking students’ education and career awareness, getting them ready for high school and college.

The program's giving students a chance to make a career portfolio, even offering assessment tests to help teenagers choose what career path best suits them.

"It's great for them to discuss what they know and what they want to do. If they already know they can research that particular job, they can find what the earnings are, the outlook and how much education you need, so it's a great tool," said Kim Brumage, a Chiles guidance counselor.

The program has been used in the Sunshine State for a few years. Leon County schools are catching on even offering workshops for students.
