Career Readiness Home

​​​​The Career Readiness Department plays an integral part in achieving the District's mission of preparing career ready graduates. "A career-ready graduate is a student who has all possible options available to them upon graduation from Fresno Unified School District. This student has a strong academic foundation, has completed required courses, and has acquired the workplace skills and competencies necessary for success after high school." By providing opportunities for all students to learn about the world of work through a variety of experiences, including guest speakers, field trips, internships, and job shadowing, students learn key career workplace skills and competencies for success. 

Through rigorous hands-on learning opportunities, students will better understand the relevance of what they are learning and learn early about potential career options.  Elementary students learn about professions from industry leaders, visit local businesses, and visit two and four year colleges to better understand industry sectors and begin to develop their employability skills.  Middle and high school students can select from classes in the following industry sectors: Agricultural and Natural Resources; Arts, Media & Entertainment, Building &  Construction Trades, Business & Finance, Education & Child Development, Energy & Utilities, Engineering & Architecture, Fashion & Interior Design, Health Science, Hospitality, Information & Communication Technologies, Marketing Sales & Service, Public Services, and  Transportation. CTE courses empower students to make meaningful career choices by providing opportunities to explore their interests, develop career skills, and reinforce academics. These courses also offer a wide range of additional educational benefits, including college credit for qualifying courses, industry certification, and internships when appropriate.
