  • Career Cruising: Search for colleges, careers, and save your personal preferences.

CAREER CLUSTERS
A career cluster is a group of careers that share common features.  If you like one job in a cluster, you will probably find other jobs in that cluster that you will like as well  There are 16 nationally recognized Career Clusters.  Visit District 211’s College Majors & Career Clusters to see the District 211 courses that align with each cluster.

HOW DO CAREER CLUSTERS IMPACT HIGH SCHOOL COURSE SELECTION?
Through Career Cruising students complete a career matchmaker inventory which generates two career clusters that align with their individual interests.  Career interest is one factor that can help guide a student’s choice of elective course.  District 211 has identified related coursework for each of the 16 career clusters.
