C-Note Instant Poll results—Career
Ninety-one percent of the respondents to the C-Note Instant Poll work during the summer and about 40% work in fields related to their potential career paths.
Students have good reason to make career plans carefully. Point them to "Choose the Right Career" to help them navigate today's challenging job market.
Vote and comment on this month's poll question by visiting the front page of C-Note (lower right). Even if you prefer not to vote or comment, click "Vote" and then "Archive" to view the archive page that contains comments along with the results of past months' poll questions.
Here is the most recent instant poll question* and responses:
Q: How will your summer job/volunteer work relate to your career plans
1. It’s in one of the areas I’m exploring for a career.
2. It’s completely different from anything I hope to do.
3. It’s mixed because I’m doing more than one thing.
4. I don’t know yet.
5. I don’t work or volunteer in the summer.
Instant poll questions capture your high school members’ attention. On which issues would you like to learn more about what they think? Use your imagination and send your poll questions with possible responses to Rena Crispin.

* Instant poll results reflect an unscientific sampling of Googolplex readers.
