Career Spotlight features people like you from Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens counties who are successful in growing, exciting career fields right here in the upstate of South Carolina. Many featured gained valuable information about their careers while in high school by taking occupational courses, and/or by participating in work-based learning experiences like job shadowing, internships, cooperative education, or apprenticeships. They then attended a technical or community college and earned an Associate Degree or Diploma in an occupational program. These are bright, successful people who have great futures ahead of them! All of them know firsthand about the value of good, solid career planning. Read their stories. Your child just may be interested in one of these careers one day!

We have organized the Career Spotlights by Career Cluster so that you can read a Spotlight in a career field that may interest you or your child. We hope to keep adding to our Career Spotlights. So read a Spotlight now, but donít forget to come back soon to see what other careers are highlighted!
