Career Coach was created to connect State System universities with careers, as well as to serve as a resource for students to find jobs in their field. By ensuring every student has a career plan, the State System is not only helping students achieve their goals, but addressing the needs of the Commonwealth’s workforce.
On Career Coach, students can search for careers and related degrees, build their resumes, and even take a career assessment to find recommendations based on their personality types. Each university’s Career Coach provides results for its geographical area, including hourly wages and numbers of people currently employed in each profession.
This is just one of the tools in the State System’s Workforce Intelligence toolkit, which also includes an academic portfolio, labor market intelligence, and education and workforce alignment. Below are links to the State System universities currently piloting Career Coach.
The State System’s Career Coach pilot was funded through the Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Program, which strives to award grants that have a long-lasting, positive impact on communities.
