Employers are struggling to find the right workers and Solano County students are seeking careers — a perfect match for the unveiling of a new tool called Connect2Careers Continuum Guide, Solano County Superintendent of Schools Lisette Estrella-Henderson announced. It’s based on the knowledge that career-readiness starts well before high school, she said.
“This guide is designed to connect students to careers, at a time when employers across various industries are struggling to find individuals who possess the knowledge and skills necessary for today’s jobs,” she said. To address the challenge, Connect2Careers offers educators resources related to career exposure for all grade levels.
“The guide is divided into four sections, each targeting a different grade span with increasing depth on a career planning continuum from exposure, to awareness, to exploration, and preparation,” Estrella-Henderson said.
