Career info & Planning

Career counseling is an integral part of the guidance and counseling program in the Hanover Park Regional High School District. It is an ongoing process, as interests change frequently throughout the high school years and beyond. The individual needs and abilities of students are recognized as important parts of the selection and exploration process.

We encourage students to discuss their career aspirations with their counselor in addition to utilizing the resources available in Naviance Family Connection. Using this site, students (and parents) can explore a wide variety of career fields. Students can complete the Do What You Are Inventory, Learning Style Inventory, and the Career Interest Profiler. Students should contact their counselor if they are interested in completing or re-doing any of these inventories.
