ASVAB Career Exploration Program/Test - Wed, March 20, 2p

If you are still figuring out your future, trying to determine what your dream job may be or just looking to identify your strengths, you should seriously consider participating in the ASVAB Career Exploration Program. Before you are scared off by the word "ASVAB," please note that 83% of students who took the ASVAB in the past 5 years were NOT interested in joining the military. However, for those of you who ARE military-bound, the ASVAB can also be used as a Graduation Pathway to meet our state grad requirements, if needed.

We are currently planning to offer the ASVAB on campus at WHS on March 20, 2024 (it's a Wednesday) @ 2:00 PM. The test will be taken on your district laptop and takes about 45-90 minutes to complete (depending on how fast you go). 

The ASVAB will assess your ability to learn new skills, take you through an interest inventory and then allow you to explore careers that coincide with your unique skills-interest profile. After testing, you will get your results and will be able to utilize multiple no-cost options for interpreting your scores and will be able to access several career planning tools. Also, you will be able to choose whether or not to have your scores released to recruiting services (including Military).

If you are interested in taking the ASVAB (it's free), please email Ms. Tang at ASAP to sign-up.
