IREC WEBINAR: Career Maps, Powerful Tools to Engage Students in Energy Topics, September 22
When done right, career maps are an ideal way to showcase the breadth of employment opportunities in a given industry and help students connect topics they’re learning about to careers they may be interested in. They can describe diverse occupations across an industry, chart possible progression between those occupations, and identify the sorts of training, skills, and credentials necessary to do them well. This IREC webinar will explore how educators and career/guidance counselors can utilize career maps as a powerful tool to coach and guide students on career pathways, and get them excited about what they’re learning.
The webinar will share insights from three popular career maps focused on clean energy and energy efficiency—the Green Buildings Career Map, the Solar Career Map, and the HVAC Career Map—but will include lessons that can be applied to the use of other career maps as well.
