So now that quite a few clients have placed Career Coach on their websites, we have been getting some good feedback and, as a result, have three nice upgrades to announce.
We are of course going to keep the same simple interface. However, based on user and client feedback, we have decided to add a sidebar with a few helpful resources.
- First, we have created a quick video so that users can understand what Career Coach is all about and how to use it.
- Second, we have also created a video tutorial on the new resume builder that Career Coach now features. For more on the resume builder, click here.
- Finally, we have added a quick description of Career Coach and who has built it. This gives your college more real estate at the top of the page and helps your users quickly understand what data Career Coach is using.
Many colleges and workforce boards have requested that we add education levels to the occupation descriptions. This is a great idea because it gives the student or jobseeker an approximate idea of how much educational effort they will need to expend if they want to get the job they’re seeking.
You can see an example of what this will look like below.
When we first built Career Coach, we wanted it to provide helpful user statistics so that colleges and workforce agencies could better understand which jobs people in the community were interested in. We are therefore pleased to announce the rollout of a “phase 1” back end that will provide basic statistics on how much Career Coach is being used and what people are looking at. In addition we give you the ability to set your own “top occupations.” This back-end functionality will continue to be developed and improved over time. For now, we wanted to put our initial improvements in your hands sooner than later.
