Explore Career Interests

Do you want to start a new career but not sure where to begin? These steps can help you achieve your goal of finding a new career.

  • Identify what your interests are and what you enjoy doing. Take an interest survey at My Next Move. This survey will match your interests with possible new careers.
  • After you have found a new career you’re interested in based on your interest survey, take a look at the employment prospects for that career. You can search your chosen career on O-Net to see the average wage for that career and if it is one in which you can expect to find a job.
  • You can also check the local market information on the WorkForce West Virginia website to see if your chosen career is in demand in your area.
  • It’s also a great idea to talk to people who are already working in your chosen career to see what it’s like working in that career and to get a better idea as to the job prospects in that field.

If you need assistance in this process, contact your nearest WorkForce West Virginia office and our staff will be happy to help you.
