The World of Work: Career PathWAYS

What Career PathWAYS connect to my interests, strengths, and skills? What are the most in-demand careers in PA?  How much will I make in my first job?  Should I attend a 4-year college or university?  What will obtaining a degree really cost me?  What are all my options after high school graduation?


As students contemplate these important questions, we encourage them to explore Start the Conversation Here, the PA Chamber Foundation’s workforce-focused website designed specifically for Pennsylvania middle and high school students, and their parents.


The tools and information available on the Start the Conversation Here website are FREE and designed to help students make informed decisions that lead to future success.  On the site, you will find an array of valuable information including:  Insight into the 33 most in-demand careers available in Pennsylvania.  A career calculator designed to help students and parents understand the financial implications of their desired career path – from expected entry level salaries and estimated college expenses to the length of time it will take to be debt-free following their educational investment.
