Houston Community College serves more than 70,000 students per semester, making it one of the largest community colleges in the nation. Each of those students — plus any other visitor to HCC’s website — can now access Career Coach, EMSI’s public-facing tool that shows current and prospective students local career information and links to the educational programs needed for those careers.
The unique program marketing tool is used by some of the largest and most influential two-year colleges in the US, including Miami Dade College, Monroe Community College (NY), Lonestar College CyFair, and now HCC.
“We are excited about adding this tool to the HCC web site and providing current, prospective students and our community at large a valuable tool to help guide the process of career selection,” said Madeline Burillo, HCC Associate Vice Chancellor for Workforce and Extended Learning in this press release.
