    Career Key and TeenLife Media Announce Partnership

    November 3, 2020

    Career Key and TeenLife Media are excited to announce a new partnership! As the industry leaders in career decision making and teen academic/enrichment experiences, we have teamed up to help students learn more about themselves via the Career Key Discovery Personality Assessment for Students, so they can find "best-fit" summer, school year, and gap experiences that prepare them for success in college and life beyond school.

    What TeenLife and Career Key Hope to Achieve Together

    Juliet Jones-Vlasceanu, CEO of Career Key, says:

    Experiential learning is a cornerstone of clarifying career interests in preparation for college and beyond. For young people new to the world of work, trying new activities and test-driving interests is exciting, fun, and practical for improving confidence and direction. It’s a natural step, then, for us to partner with the leading expert in teen enrichment and academic experiences, TeenLife. For many years, they have been parents’ and school counselors’ “go-to” resource for teen programs and we are excited to partner with them to promote teens’ long-term career and education well-being.

    Marie Schwartz, CEO of TeenLife Media, is a passionate supporter of helping teens to become more self-aware and independent before they graduate from high school:

    Too many students have no idea what they are best suited for and choose colleges and jobs for the wrong reasons. By taking the Career Key Personality Assessment, students will learn which work environments and careers are best suited to their personalities. They can use this knowledge to select a few summer and school year programs that match these interests and "try-out" careers before making an expensive mistake. The college applications from these students will be that much stronger.
