In addition to compiling rich, workforce data such as occupational growth and wage information, Co-Lin’s Career Coach includes an assessment based on personality and strengths to help users explore a variety of careers.
“Career Coach is a valuable career guidance tool that will assist individuals in narrowing down a career field through an interest inventory that provides important information such as local wage and labor market data that will help in the decision-making process,” said Co-Lin Associate Vice President of Instructional Services Jackie Martin. “It is vital that we match local students in careers that are needed in our local job market. We want our talented students to know that they can find a great career and still live in Mississippi. Career Coach allows them to explore various career pathways based on results of their from personal interest inventory.”
Transitioning military service members can use their military occupation code to match their current job with civilian occupations.
“We are excited to offer this free online tool to help our students and the general public make informed decisions regarding their career,” Martin said.
