It examined available career opportunities and how curriculum content reflects the needs of industry. Data were analyzed using frequency counts and percentages. The result shows that students are not aware of some career opportunities in both the textile and garment industries. Although the content of the curriculum reflected the needs of industry, the students could not connect those to career paths.
