"It was like shadowing someone at work without actually having to go to their work"
Don't waste your time and money pursuing a college degree, attending a trade school, or taking online classes only to find out that the career you were shooting for isn't what you thought it was.
Why Career Documentaries?
How can listening to people talk about their careers and daily responsibilities help YOU?
Learn from the experience of others.
Have you ever noticed that people who have already done something in life can give some great tips and advice about that journey?
It's usually because, along the way, they made some mistakes. By listening to what they have to say about their career path, you can learn from their mistakes and hear about the things they would have done differently if they had to do it all over again!
Understand what matters!
Everyone that attends school knows that when it comes to formal education, there are things that you will use and things that you won't.
In most post high school education systems, it's the same way. But by hearing from the people that have already gone through the process, you can understand what will matter when you start your actual career.
Know where the school system falls short
An experienced engineer can tell you that if you go into this industry, you will most likely need to learn Skill A (could be Matlab, Excel Macros, AutoCAD, etc.). An experienced welder can explain that having a good toolbox of different welding skills will make a huge difference in your career. An experienced teacher will explain why having a good relationship with parents is important. Mentors are game changers and can help you understand how to supplement your education.
Experience from the comfort of home.
Trying to find an internship before going to college / trade school or finding a job shadowing program that offers multiple different careers can be both costly and time consuming.
And shadowing or interning when you have multiple interests can prove to be even more challenging. Why not get some exposure to the different fields at home first before deciding on higher education?

See what real students had to say about Career Conversations!
Walking through the different schedules of people in different jobs helped break down what it is exactly that I'd be getting into if I majored in fields like that. Watching these documentaries helped me think more about the job I want after college, instead of just thinking about majors.
High School Class of 2021
The documentaries were helpful to me. They gave me a better idea of what it was actually working like in those fields. They we're very informative. I was interested in Marketing but it helped me to realize that's not something I actually wanted to do since it's not what I thought it was.

Career Conversations was a big help in deciding what I want to do in the future. Watching these (documentaries) was kind of like shadowing somebody, without actually going to their work and following them around all day.

Why is job exposure important?
Because interests are different than careers!
One of the biggest misconceptions out there when it comes to choosing a major or trade school is that studying what you are interested in is the way to go.
This is a very, very sneaky trap that many people fall into. You have an interest and you go down a path towards a career around that interest.
But then one day you start to see what the jobs are like in that field. You quickly realize that even though you still have your interest, this sort of work is NOT what you signed up for!
How Are The Documentaries Different Then Youtube Videos?
Career focused Youtube videos have some nice production but seriously lack when it comes to informational depth.
What you end up with is the the simple, generic definition that you get from a Google search.
Our documentaries are aimed at going much deeper so that you can:
Relate to their career journeys
Understand what their everyday responsibilities are like.
Know if a similar career is right for you!
Why are job documentaries
the way to go?
Isn't that what
internships are for?
Absolutely! And internships are actually great experiences. They give you that real world experience that can tell you that what the job field is like.
The only problem is that most internships are only available to students in their sophomore, junior, or senior years of college usually after they have chosen a major.
Also, most students typically only do 1-2 internships max!
Why not get exposed to a bunch of different work before choosing a college or a major?
