Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute, in conjunction with Economic Modeling Specialists, Inc., has launched Career Coach, a free online tool that allows prospective students and community members to explore potential careers and training programs at CCC&TI.
The easy-to-use online tool gives users access to up-to-date labor market information for our region including salaries, employment growth projections and job opportunities. Career Coach also connects users to CCC&TI program offerings that can help them train for the career they are exploring, or get started on earning the degree that can land them a job.
Career Coach can be accessed via the college’s website at www.cccti.edu and then clicking the Career Coach logo on the home page or at www.cccti.edu/coach. Through a simple keyword search, visitors can learn about careers, educational options, employment opportunities in the region and local job market data. Users also have access to a free career assessment tool and resume builder.
Career Coach’s real time job search feature is powered by Indeed, the leading international online employment website with free access to millions of jobs from thousands of company websites and job boards. Those with a military background can also enter their occupation codes and Career Coach will automatically match it to similar civilian careers.
Administrators at the college hope that the new tool will help prospective students find fields of study that match their interests and strengths while also exploring current job opportunities in the region. “With this tool, students can consider salary information, job growth and available opportunities for a specific career or field. Ultimately, we’re hoping this information will help them make the most informed decision possible when it comes to their career path and college education,” said CCC&TI President, Dr. Mark Poarch. “Career Coach works seamlessly with our existing website and we hope it will be a tool that helps prospective students set and reach their goals.”
