    import java.util.Scanner; //allows for input

    switch(option)
    {
    case 1:
    System.out.println("You are now setting the employment category...");
    //can use nested if else

    Please copy the full text of the error messages and paste it here.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Well one problem I can see is that you are scanning for the name and score after the if-statements that test them. The if-statements would have already ran when the variables are filled with the information that is inputted.
