In The Career of Your Dreams, students will get to research and explore career opportunities in the U.S. Department of Labor. They will learn how to find out what’s required, what the responsibilities are, and the salary scales of jobs that are experiencing the most growth throughout the country. The class meets on two Saturdays, Oct. 5 and 12, from 8 to 11:55 a.m. The fee is $48.
