College and Career Planning

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any good resources for this? I'd like my kids to take a test that might point them in the direction of careers that might fit them. My oldest is particularly challenging! I know Sonlight sells a college and career planning kit, but is it any good? Any online resources you've heard of? I would like some recommendations.
