Amarillo College recently began using EMSI’s Career Coach as part of its data-based approach to student success. And, while the college’s Career Coach website (which it has branded as StartHereCareers.com) is relatively new, it’s already attracted some very positive attention.
Amarillo’s CBS news affiliate profiled Start Here Careers in a segment that featured both student responses and some great thoughts from Ellen Green, Amarillo College’s chief of communications and marketing.
“It’s really difficult to find the right information when it comes to salaries and also the aging of the workforce and how many people are going to be moving out of the job so that there will be jobs to move into,” Green told KDFA NewsChannel 10.
The college’s version of Career Coach puts all that job-searching information — specific to the Amarillo economy — in one place.
If you visit Start Here Careers, you’ll find this nice introduction to the easy-to-use web tool.
