Here is an excerpt from the segment:
For years, employers and educators have worried about the local brain drain. Now Monroe Community College thinks it may have an answer — Career Coach, a new Web site it plans to launch on Monday.
“It’s very very comprehensive,” Sophomore student Corey McMichael said. “You can look at one page and it will show you everything you want to know about your job.”
McMichael wants to be a teacher. He thought he’d have to leave home to find a job.
“I know Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas they have a lot of openings down there,” he said.
After getting an early look at MCC’s Career Coach, he now expects to stay in Upstate New York following graduation.
“In the next couple of years, specifically around my graduation year, there will be a lot of teachers approaching retirement age and I think that that allows me to find a job,” he said.
Career coach provides local employment statistics from national, state and private sources.
“It gives them a snapshot of what’s actually available in the market,” MCC V.P. Of Economic and Workforce Development Todd Oldham said.
Everything from average wages, current openings and future job outlooks for our area.
