The Career Path Less Taken from American Graduate, Corporation for Public Broadcasting and CET, ideastream and WOSU Public Media

Against the backdrop of Ohio’s looming skills gap, The Career Path Less Taken travels across the state to innovative career-tech education programs (CTE) that are preparing young people for the jobs of tomorrow. The Career Path Less Taken challenges traditional notions of success by demonstrating that there are many pathways to skilled jobs that do not require a four-year college degree.

The Career Path Less Taken is a half-hour documentary co-presented by Ohio’s public television stations – WOSU Public Media, CET in Cincinnati, and ideastream in Cleveland – as a part of American Graduate: Getting to Work. The three stations are partnering to produce content focused on the changing workplace and the educational pathways to skilled jobs.

Locally through American Graduate, WOSU has created the Rivet podcast to highlight opportunities outside of the conventional career path and follow the next generation of workers as they find well-paying jobs that they enjoy. The second season of Rivet is coming in October.


Watch on WOSU TV on Thursday, September 5 at 8pm or anytime online.
