We're Ready!


Dear RU Ready for Work participants,

 Welcome to your page!  We have designed this page just for you.  The links and material were created to assist in preparing you for the transformation that will open up a whole new world on your journey through the World of Work.  From time to time we will update and/or add to the information and -- guess what!  You have access to this page through the next year. 

Objectives for todays session:

1.   Use the Occupational Outlook Handbook,

a comprehensive government source on careers

2. Explore career and college sites in order

 to focus your professional plans


Have fun changing your world!


Best of luck,
