Career Assessments

Naviance-Students can use these Naviance tools to explore their interests and strengths, and to research possible careers and postsecondary schools. The following items will help guide students as they explore their strengths, skills, possible occupations, and colleges. Naviance is used in part to help guide NHS students in their individualized plan of study.


Careers-Learn about salary expectations and occupation licenses to better prepare for next steps.


Career Navigator-The Kansas Career Navigator is an intuitive dashboard intended to aid in the selection of education and training programs, access workforce training providers, analyze performance information and labor market information. Additionally, by navigating this site, a user has real time access to high demand, high wage occupation opportunities by county or local area selection.


Hire Paths-HirePaths has three primary goals, all focused on building a positive discussion around post-high school options: 

  • To inform parents and guardians about the variety of educational paths available to their children for achieving successful careers.
  • To broaden parents’ viewpoints about their child’s future by informing them about well-paying, in-demand careers that do not require a bachelor’s degree.
  • To reinforce that a young person going straight to work or attending a technical program is not in any way a failure – quite the contrary! Kansas needs young people pursuing all paths in order for our state to thrive, and wages for in-demand careers keep going up.



O net-Match your skills with possible occupations. Review job descriptions for various occupations. The Occupational Information Network is a free online database that contains hundreds of occupational definitions to help students, job seekers, businesses and workforce development professionals to understand today’s world of work.


Occupational Outlook Handbook-The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) is an online publication that has information on hundreds of occupations in the United States.
