190 Career education profiles to explore

A group of diverse people holding cards that spell the word "Careers"
Students begin exploring career pathways as early as elementary school. By the time they enter middle school, conversations about career aspirations become more focused and students are introduced to the sixteen career clusters via Career and Technology Education.  
Students quickly learn that career choices and options for entering the workforce are constantly evolving. From welding to law to agribusiness, the possibilities are endless! Fortunately, SCETV has strong partnerships across the state that provide an opportunity for us to tell the stories of South Carolina careers.
With over 60 years' worth of content, we not only tell stories about culture, history and nature, but we also share some of the unique and interesting career paths found right here in the Palmetto State.  Are you a parent or a caregiver who wants to help open your child's eyes to various careers? Maybe you are an adult looking for that next career path or dream job for yourself.  Wherever you are in life, our education portal Knowitall.orgoffers a huge collection of career videos. We have hand-picked 190 career profiles and companies for you to explore. 
Be sure to check out our new 360 career profile videos in our Let’s Go Careers series. You should also visit our page devoted solely to workforce topics.  
Teachers, we’ve also compiled a list of lesson plans specific to career and technology education!
