For more than 30 years, HIEC has provided programs and services that support students as they prepare to transition into high school, allowing them to imagine a post-secondary pathway that will set them up for future success.

Our interactive Career Lab provides students and educators with access to current information on a wide range of career options for a variety of learners. The Career Lab complements and extends career/life planning beyond the classroom and is designed to support students as they prepare to make the transition to secondary school and beyond.

What Can Students Expect from the Career Lab?

  • The Career Lab workshop helps students identify their skills and abilities, and gives them the opportunity to investigate areas of occupational interest
  • Students will use a four-step inquiry process commonly used in career/life planning: knowing yourself; exploring opportunities; making decisions and setting goals; and achieving goals and making transitions
  • Students and teachers have the opportunity to request material and participate in the simulation program, The Real Game, which provides them with a better understanding of working conditions, salaries, future trends, an post-secondary pathways for the jobs that interest them
