The CodeHS Career Center is a curated list of resources that shows real world computer science connections and encourages students to explore different career pathways. With the Career Center, students can learn how computer science is used across careers, read about the experiences of industry professionals, and complete lessons tailored to their areas of interest.
Using the Career Center in Your Classroom
There are many ways to use the Career Center in your classroom. We recommend using the resources as supplemental curriculum, as a project resource, or to assist with recruitment for CS classes.
Each pathway offers Career Lessons that are a great supplemental resource to your CodeHS courses. You can assign the lessons to your students or allow students to explore and complete lessons on their own.
Students are able to view resources about different types of careers and can utilize each article or lesson for projects assigned to them.
The Career Center shows students some of the many pathways in the industry and allows them to visualize how computer science can relate to their future careers. Students can learn about different industry professionals' career journeys with the articles included in each pathway.
