Work Experience

Nothing tops work experience for students preparing to graduate, whether they’re entering the work force, attending trade school, community college or a university. 

To start, students can check in with the following resources:

  • If you have an interest in a specific career field, ask you counselor, parent or family friends to connect you with work opportunities in your community. 
  • Check job boards at your school. 
  • Work permits and FAQs about youth work guidelines.
  • Work-based learning. Some students might be able to work during the school day and receive school credits. Students should check in with their school and counselor for work-based learning opportunities. 
  • Summer Work Program through CTE for students who have an open case with Michigan Rehabilitation Services (typically students have an IEP or a 504 plan).
