Make Money Choices: A financial reality check

After high school, you will need to work to pay living expenses, like housing, transportation, and clothing.  Make Money Choices is a tool in the California CareerZone, requiring a free account setup, that will provide the financial information you need to help you make important decisions such as:

  • What kind of occupation will support the lifestyle I plan to live?
  • What kind of education do I need or want?
  • What major should I choose?
  • Where do I want to go to college?

Use the Make Money Choices [PDF] workbook to guide you through the steps to build a budget that supports the lifestyle you plan to achieve as an adult.
