Cerro Coso Launches Online Career Search Tool

Cerro Coso Community 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 Cerro Coso's website at http://www.cerrocoso.edu and clicking on the scrolling banner ad or via the Career Center page.

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 College's geographic 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 largest skill gaps to fill 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 jobseekers quickly and efficiently put together an updated resume with key skills and job experience highlighted.

"I'm very excited about this new resource that our college is providing to our students and the community, free of charge. This tool is designed to help jobseekers find good employment opportunities in the communities we serve," stated Valerie Karnes, Dean of Career Technical Education at Cerro Coso.

"The best part about Career Coach is that we worked closely with Economic Modeling Specialists Int. (EMSI) to connect all the job opportunities to our college's training programs. So, after a jobseeker identifies a promising job opportunity, they'll know how Cerro Coso can help them achieve their career goals," said Karnes.

Career Coach was designed to be a self-guided resource for jobseekers that requires zero staff assistance to navigate.
