Microsoft's Career Resource for Students

Microsoft has created a FREE (love that word!) online course that aims to prepare youth for 21st century job. How cool is that!

This course, called Career Forward, is all online and is organized into four modules. The course can be given in a classroom type setting or the students can complete individually and the project aims to get students thinking about what they want to do with their lives. It also gets them thinking about their career path and the skills they need to have to succeed.

I will be honest, I haven't take the course, but on first glance, this looks to be like a great resource for student's to realize what job field they may want to look into and what skills they need for that job field. The course is free and available to any U.S. student.

Anyone who may have used the product, I encourage you to leave comments about the quailty of the course.
