VC launches free online career exploration tool
Dec. 8, 2012 at 6:08 a.m.
Victoria College is pleased to announce that it has launched Career Coach, a free online tool that allows students and community members to explore potential careers.
Career Coach can be accessed by visiting Victoria College's website at VictoriaCollege.edu and clicking on the Career Coach graphic on the right-hand side of the homepage.
Through a simple keyword search, students and any visitor to the college's website can learn about the employment prospects of careers they want to research. The real-time information is customized to the local region and includes detailed wage estimates and up-to-date job postings associated with any career. Users are directed to the college's programs when searching for specific jobs.
If a career doesn't look like the right fit, individuals can search for similar jobs and see the essential skills needed to move to that career. They can also search for careers based on the College's top training programs - or the program or major they are interested in.
Career Coach includes a built-in resume builder to help students and job-seekers quickly and efficiently put together an updated resume with key skills and job experience highlighted.
Career Coach complements the array of career and transfer services already offered by the college's advising and counseling services office, including career fairs, workshops, an online career assessment resource called MyPlan, transfer days, academic and transfer advising, and job postings for VC students.
