Career Coach is a FREE online tool that allows students and community members to discover majors and in-demand careers and education based on the individual's interests.
Find local job opportunities, data on wages, career paths, and market trends for hundreds of career paths. Through a simple keyword search, students and any visitor to the College’s website can learn about the employment prospects of careers they want to research. The real-time information is customized to the College’s geographic region and includes detailed wage estimates and up-to-date job postings associated with any career. Users are directed to the College’s programs when searching for specific jobs.
If a career doesn’t look like the right fit, individuals can search for similar jobs and see the largest skill gaps to fill to move to that career. They can also search for careers based on the college’s top training programs — or the program or major they are interested in.
Career Coach has a built-in resume builder to help students and job-seekers quickly and efficiently put together an updated resume with key skills and job experience highlighted.
