Now live online, The AlabamaWorks Career SUCCESS Guides website helps Alabama students, their parents and anyone preparing for a new career learn more about high-demand careers and salary ranges, the steps students need to take to reach their career goals, and where to get the resources available to help them get there. The sixteen guides, one for each career cluster established by the U.S. Department of Labor, feature six short bios of Alabamians who share their stories and paths to their current jobs in Alabama companies. These personal stories offer students insight into the school-to-work connection and a realistic view of what it takes to succeed. A downloadable and printable version of each guide is available online along with an all-new interactive version. The interactive tools allow for easy comparison from one guide to another and offers more information not available in the print versions.

To make their dreams of success a reality, Alabama’s students must have access to relevant tools and resources that engage their minds and promote lifelong learning.
