Career Survey

Career Survey

Hello!

The Santa Cruz Public Libraries is partnering with Your Future is Our Business to bring an exciting panel of three professions to talk about their jobs. Thus, we are looking for teen input! The teen must be in between 12 to 18 years old. 

Below, you will find a survey with 15 job sectors, please choose up to three. From the results, we will gather three individuals from three most voted job sectors to talk about their journey and describe in detail about their respective job. The tentative date for the virtual program will be Wednesday, December 1, 2021.

The Santa Cruz Workforce Collaborative will offer a holistic approach to jobseekers at various levels of need by bringing together information about local workforce programs in the library's Navigation Center, creating a much needed roadmap of services, and providing bilingual, 1-on-1, and workshop-based support to individuals in navigating the career development process. This collaborative is intended to help adults and teens that are looking to find a job or a career, or further their experience.
