Career Interest Inventory

All 8th grade students at MILA completed an online career interest inventory administered by their school counselor. See details below.


Each year, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools conducts a career interest survey of 8th-12th graders that asks for your student’s name, address, and student ID number. The purpose of this survey is for local businesses and community organizations to recruit students to join the Exploring program, which is done through mailing invitation letters to join their business’ Exploring program. This program is a not-for-profit organization whose goal is to give students career experiences that help guide their decisions when choosing what to do after high school. These businesses and organizations participate voluntarily and receive no monetary compensation for their services.
