SDMyLife helps SD youth navigate academic and career interests

Posted by Laura Dimock on

SDMyLife is an online program assisting students with navigating the career development process since 2008. With the support of teachers, counselors, and parents, SDMyLife's goal is to help students better understand themselves and how their interest, skills, and knowledge relate to real-world academic and career opportunities. South Dakota students use SDMyLife to research, select, and plan their careers. To find a good match, students take interest and ability assessments. They can explore by career cluster, keyword, or school subject. Students can also research postsecondary education and training options, build a portfolio, study with Method Test Prep and find out about scholarships opportunities.

As they progress through high school, students can map their education careers and build a Personal Learning Plan. They can also save assessment scores, log career planning activities and extracurricular involvement, and even build a resume!

SDMylife is brought to the students of South Dakota by the South Dakota Department of Education.
