Career Coach tells students (even potential students) how the education you provide will lead to careers that interest them. This user-friendly web-based tool markets careers and programs to students by providing valuable information on how wages, trends, and careers connect to education and training at your college.
Point jobseekers in the right direction
Once a student or jobseeker finds a job, we make it easy for them to contact you about the appropriate training. In addition, if a jobseeker finds disappointing data for their occupation of choice, Career Coach can use the skill profile of the chosen occupation to generate a list of similar occupations to look for more job openings or stronger regional growth.
Career Coach’s simple interface and quick workflow will help you connect jobseekers to employment and training and gather essential data on the people you serve, so you can serve them better.

Four simple steps
Career Coach generates four pieces of data to help jobseekers find good careers: earnings, the local employment outlook, job postings, and local education and training programs for that occupation.
1. Earnings:Is the job worth the effort?
Career Coach shows the regional wage for each occupation, which provides a general sense of the earning potential of different careers.
2. Employment Trends:What's available locally?
Career Coach displays the total number of jobs and recent trends for the selected occupation. This helps jobseekers understand how many people actually do “X” in the area and if the job is growing, declining, or holding steady.
3. Education and Training:What's the next step?
With Career Coach we can either link our employment data to regional training providers or directly to a college’s program data so that anyone can see available programs connected to the occupations that interest them. This is a very valuable component because it helps establish the need for training once people have found the right career and leads jobseekers straight to your door.
4. Job Postings:Who’s hiring?
Career Coach does this by using Indeed data, a comprehensive database of jobs for your area. This data links to our occupation data, which connects to your programs. That’s what makes this tool so powerful — Career Coach gives jobseekers a new perspective on employment and leads them straight to you.
