Career Cruising

Career Cruising is a user-friendly comprehensive college and career search website. Various tools on the site provide valuable information for all students; from the student who doesn't know where to begin as well as the student who has  post-secondary plans in hand. Students can complete an interest inventory (Career Matchmaker), Search for colleges, universities and career programs based on their own criteria (School Selector), research careers including information on job descriptions, wages, future outlook and read interviews with professionals working in the field. They can find college majors, identify high school classes that relate to their career interests, find out more about their personal learning style and even build a resume of activities to assist them in completing college and job applications. All research, assessment results and information can be saved by students to an electronic portfolio that will assist counselors in making recommendations for internships, colleges, and other post-secondary planning options.
