Energy Career Interest Exploration
Select one of the following options to complete with your students. On your post-program evaluation to receive your stipend, you will be asked how many students completed one of the career interest inventories.
Option #1: Ohio Means Jobs
This is the most extensive search and includes 80 questions to help students identify interests in 16 different “career clusters.” The Career Clusters Inventory takes about 10 minutes. Completing the virtual backpack allows students to save their results and research specific careers in their identified interest clusters.
- Careers Cluster Inventory (does not require the student to create an account)
- Ohio Means Jobs Guided Tour & Virtual Backpack (requires students create an account with an email address and phone number)
Option #3: Electric Power Job Openings at Ohio Utilities
Students can explore current AEP job postings, learn about alliances with technical schools, and take a sample CAST (construction and skilled trades) test.
- Current Job Postings
- Learn about technical school alliances
