Students can save their results from the Career Matchmaker interest inventory and return at a later date to explore more. Students receive a list of 40 career suggestions, by KY Career Clusters, that are ranked in order of personal suitability

8 My Skills My Skills is an inventory assessment that asks students to rate their level of skill in 45 areas. Once students have completed the assessment, icons indicating the level of skill suitability will appear beside the career names in the Matchmaker Career Suggestions.

9 Career Exploration Students can search careers by title (alphabetically), school subject, career clusters, military careers or use the career selector to input a variety of criteria ie. Make selections for each of the above options.

10 Career Exploration The Career Exploration component provides educational requirements, possible career paths and video interviews of two people in the career. Students can save and/or print information about specific careers. Links are provided to post-secondary institutions that offer programs that support the career.

11 Career Exploration Students can see the questions and responses that created the Career Matchmaker list. Photo files and video interviews are available for all careers.

12 Search by Index There are multiple pathways for students to research careers. Students can also search for a career using the alphabetical index.

13 Career Exploration-Related Jobs
Additional related jobs are listed for all careers. Students cruise from these hotlinks to explore more careers.

14 Career Exploration-Education
Students can view the educational requirements for each career in which they are interested. This is powerful information as it provides a “heads up” to students regarding their ability to guide themselves on a career path.

15 College Exploration Students can see which colleges offer programs that will support their career goals. With this tool they can begin their college search from their computer by identifying programs that meet their size, location and cost criteria.

16 Employment Guide To further enhance the career exploration of students Career Cruising has added an Employment Guide provides students with valuable advice for all stages of the work search. From developing a job search plan, to writing a resume and cover letter, to preparing for that important interview, through to the first day on the job, our Employment Guide will lead students step-by-step along the way. The Employment Guide was developed in partnership with University of Waterloo (uWaterloo) Center for Career Action, and contains elements of uWaterloo’s Career Development eManual. The eManual is a comprehensive, 6 step exercise and activity guide that will prompt you to evaluate your professional skills, interests, values and personal characteristics, as well as your employment and lifestyle goals in order to map out a career path that is right for you. Find out more about what uWaterloo’s Career Development eManual can do for you, and how to subscribe.

Schools can use this section to help students to create a course schedule that meets their career and educational goals School courses are linked to Kentucky’s universal course codes to allow reporting at the school, district, and state level. Data from the Education Plan can be used to forecast course demand.

22 Career Cluster Interests
Kentucky’s 14 Career Clusters have been integrated in a variety of ways. Clicking on the name of a cluster takes students to a page with a brief description of that cluster as well as links to related career profiles. Students can indicate which clusters are of particular interest and record personal perspectives.

Related files, such as a letters of reference or timesheets, can be uploaded and linked to particular records. Students can also enter their work experience in the same fashion

26 ILP Completion Standards
ILP Completion Standards clearly define the objectives and expectations for students. With the ILP Completion Status Bar, students can view requirements and track their progress towards meeting those specific objectives. Completion Standards help ensure that students keep their ILPs up to date. Each year students must review and revise the required sections of their ILP and reflect on the changes they have made to achieve completion. ILP Completion Standards are set on a grade by grade basis. The ILP is a progressive experience for students as they build their plan over time.

27 Resume Builder The ILP also includes a Resume Builder, which takes information students have already entered and helps them create a customized resume. Students can select a variety of styles and can select the order in which the sections appear, allowing them to create chronological, functional or combined format resumes. The resume can be printed from a web browser or exported as a Word, text, or html file.
