Learn. Lead. Change the World.

Career Prep

It’s never too early to begin preparing for your career, and NSHSS is here to help.  NSHSS continues to develop partnerships and programs that expose and enlighten our members to pathways toward meaningful careers. 

Annually, NSHSS surveys its members to ask their opinions in the areas of career choices, employers, workplace environment, technology, communications and educational goals.  The survey helps NSHSS and employers gain insight into students’ career aspirations now that Millennials are becoming the largest generation in the workforce.  Read the 2016 Millennial Career Survey Results here.

NSHSS is proud to partner with leading organizations to offer our members special opportunities to advance their higher education and career goals.
