Career Cruising offers information, guidance, resume building tools, and much more for career development in a single, integrated online resource. It is designed for job seekers, students, or anyone seeking assistance with a career question. In addition to skill and interest assessments, career explorers can listen to interviews with people who are currently working in a specific job. This resource will help its users learn about typical tasks and what to expect in a job they might be interested in.
Active job hunters can create a portfolio, build a resume, and then search for and apply to job postings through Career Cruising. User portfolios are also great for saving completed assessments and tracking career development.
Students in high school and college can develop a personal education and career track that fit their interests. Search for schools in the Education section by program, filter by preferences, and even learn about financial aid options.
