Career Exploration

We utilize a service called Virtual Job Shadow to help you discover a new career path or solidify the path you’ve been following. We do this through personal assessments provided by the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. The assessments help provide careers that best suit you with each career offering a virtual snapshot or job shadow through video Questions and Answers. This website also offers software to help develop your resume and personal goals. 

For participants looking for proof of skills or enhancing their skills to gain a promotion, we offer workforce readiness through edmentum

For students in grades 9 – 12, this is a fantastic opportunity to begin to understand the possibilities before them. They can choose from several career paths and, with help from their EOC advisor, can develop an educational plan to guide them into their desired career. 

Adult students can take a similar path if they have not completed high school utilizing our GED completion tools. After enrolling in our online educational course (edmentum) to assess their current knowledge base, the program will prescribe online modules through predictive analytics that can be accessed anywhere online. This service is provided for free by the EOC to registered participants. Registration is also free.


A different life is possible.
We can help.

To date, we’ve provided educational services and support to more than 21,000 individuals. We can help you too.
