Mapping Your Path to A Career

We are fortunate that we live in a region that is flourishing with jobs in a variety of industries and provides many opportunities to find your career fit.

But how do you find those jobs? Where can you get the education and training to meet those job requirements?

This is where Mapping Your Path comes in.

Mapping Your Path is a planning tool that will help you understand the best pathways to build the career you want in the Charleston area. Explore the pathways listed to learn which jobs require shorter or longer education programs, to know what skills you will need and to have an idea of how much you can expect to earn.

The pathways selected represent high-growth occupational clusters for the region. Skills required in each pathway are adapted from the Chamber’s Common Skills in High Demand and each pathway’s validity has been endorsed by the employers referenced in each sector pathway.

Below are the Pathways identified in the booklet:

Healthcare Occupations

Construction Occupations

Culinary/Hospitality Occupations

IT/ Technology Occupations

Business Occupations

Manufacturing Occupations
