“Why do I need to study high school math (or language arts or chemistry, etc.)? What kind of job will it get me?”


While math, language arts or chemistry may feel like a lot of work to you now, it really can lead you to some unexpected career choices.

Take a moment to explore occupations that need that particular subject, or combination of subjects. If one of those occupations appeals to you...maybe it’s time to crack open that textbook!
