Virginia Career VIEW

Virginia Career VIEW (Vital Information for Education and Work) is recognized as the Commonwealth's Career Information Delivery System for all students in grades K-8 in Virginia.  We are located at Virginia Tech as part of the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences in the School of Education.  As part of the Office of Education, Research and Outreach, our mission is to inform, encourage, and support the education and career development of the people of Virginia. Virginia Career VIEW is supported by State funds from the Virginia Department of Education, directly through Virginia Tech.

For over 30 years, Virginia Career VIEW has been serving school counselors, educators, workforce development professionals, students, parents, and job seekers through career resources, research, outreaches, and professional development training.

Our efforts combine independent research, engaging activities, in addition to hands-on statewide training and outreaches with the most current data presented using the latest technology.  We share these resources through our website, toll-free career information line, workshops for professionals, and statewide outreach events.
