Websites for College Prep and Job Searches

  • BestColleges.com partners with HigherEducation.com to provide students with direct connections to schools and programs suiting their educational goals. They also host a wide array of free college planning, financial aid, and career resources to help all students get the most from their education and prepare for the world after college. 
  • College Prep 101 is another great source for all levels of college prep, from help on the standardized tests to checklists on what to pack for your first semester. It’s also an extremely well-built and easy-to-navigate site.
  • CollegeBoard is a fantastic site to look up colleges, test prep, financial aid information, and all sorts of articles related to college prep. It’s definitely worth clicking through. (Their college prep section is called “BigFuture”)
  • Discover Business Guide provides information on accredited business schools in the US. Included are tips on how to choose a business school that fits your needs as well as a breakdown of popular business school rankings, and how to best use that information. And lastly, you will find more in-depth business school information by state.
  • Jobs for Teens HQ is a new site dedicated to helping teens find jobs. Getting a job is tough, but getting a job when you have little or no experience is even tougher. Jobs for Teens HQ is working to change that.
  • novoresume.com asks "How do you record your Work Experience when you have never had a job?" Actually, making a High School Student resume with no experience is much easier than it sounds—if you brainstorm thoroughly and know some tips and tricks.
  • Peterson’s is one of the classics, and there’s a reason it’s persisted all these years. It’s a good starting place for when you’re still trying to figure out your next step. For more in-depth information, they also publish books.
  • StudentAid.ed.gov (formerly College.gov) is the federal government’s website explaining all kinds of financial aid, including the kinds you might be eligible for, how to apply for it, and how to deal with student loans.
