Not all careers require a college degree. To find out about careers and more, check out this helpful link to the Occupational Information Network (O*NET) https://www.onetonline.org/
"The O*NET Program is the nation's primary source of occupational information. Valid data are essential to understanding the rapidly changing nature of work and how it impacts the workforce and the U.S. economy. From this information, applications are developed to facilitate the development and maintenance of a skilled workforce.
Central to the project is the O*NET database, containing hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors on almost 1,000 occupations covering the entire U.S. economy. The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated from input by a broad range of workers in each occupation.
O*NET information is used by millions of individuals every year, including those taking advantage of O*NET Online, My Next Move, and other publicly and privately developed applications. The data have proven vital in helping people find the training and jobs they need, and employers the skilled workers necessary to be competitive in the marketplace.
The Occupational Information Network (O*NET) is developed under the sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration (USDOL/ETA) through a grant to the North Carolina Department of Commerce" (https://www.onetcenter.org/overview.html).
ACT Prep Course
Stress and anxiety often play a large role in ACT preparation. Ohio Christian University hopes to alleviate some of this stress with an ACT prep course. The course will be offered on Jan. 3 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and is hosted by Teacher Education Department Chair Dr. Valerie Jones. Students from grades 10 through 12 are welcome to attend.
Registration for the class is $75. This cost includes a full day of ACT preparation, workbooks on all four subjects, and methods developed by Dr. Jones. Students who have used Jones’s methods have seen an average of five points increase in their ACT scores. Some have seen an increase of up to 10 points.
English and Reading will be covered in the morning, with Math and Science training taking place in the afternoon. Lunch will be provided between the two sections, the cost of which is included in the registration fee.
The deadline for registration is Dec. 15. Students can register online using the link below. Those who are interested should register as soon as possible as space is limited.
