Harford 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. It can be accessed via the HCC website at www.harford.edu. The tool can be found by scrolling down to the black area at the bottom of each web page. Under resources, click on “Career Coach.”

According to Harford Community College Coordinator for Career Services Anna Berglowe-Lynch, the tool helps prospective students investigate potential career paths and links them back to credit and Continuing Education and Training programs at the College that could help them obtain their goal. She explained that Career Coach offers multiple ways of researching career fields and offers a simple career assessment to help someone uncover their possible career interests. One can also find a widget powered by EMSI on the program pages for the different majors that offers a glimpse at some related careers and the typical salary information for this region. For example, see http://www.harford.edu/continuing-education/computer-certifications-and-training/web-graphic-design.aspx.

Through a simple keyword search, students and any visitor to HCC’s website can learn about the employment prospects in the Baltimore metro area of careers they want to research. Users are directed to Harford’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 HCC’s top training programs — or the program or major they are interested in.

Career Coach is a great new resource offered by HCC for students and jobseekers.
