Career & Technical Education Database
The Forsyth County Public Library has a great online resource that provides us a wide range of helpful career information! Proquest’s Career and Technical Education Database is one-stop database for career information.
Not only does it provide basic descriptions, recommended educational pathways, and salary information for hundreds of specific job titles, but it also offers access to full-text articles/chapters from over 700 sources.
In addition, users have access to the full text of more than 30 ebook titles on career exploration. So, if you search for “Sous Chef”, you’ll get not only excerpts from reference books about that career, but also magazine interviews with famous sous chefs, industry news from trade publications, and interview tips for those seeking culinary careers.
The CTE Database covers Automotive, Building Trades, Computing, Cosmetology, Graphic Design, Healthcare, Photography, and many more career areas. The Career And Technical Education Database is available from FCPL’s Online Resources page under “Jobs and Careers”
