Adding and Editing Career Path items

How to add a Career Path to a Drupal page.

Career paths are presented to the user as icons that show up in a shaded bar on the main.  They can be used to highlight different careers available to students, different aspects of career planning, or for any other use that would benefit from their icon based display.  Clicking an icon will take the user to a page with more details about the item.
