    Engaging potential. Inspiring Futures 

    People are most successful when they have the opportunity to explore their interests and skills early on in life. By partnering with K-12 educators in your community, you can help today’s students gain exposure to careers, develop employability skills, and build tomorrow’s talent pool.

    Career Matchmaker & My Skills

    District partners will be paired with students based on careers that match your interests, skills, learning style and abilities/capabilities using tools in Xello - our college and career preparedness software. In that system, our students will find one-click access to hundreds of up-to-date, detailed occupational profiles designed to bring the real world into the classroom and inspire imaginations. Profiles include real-life job descriptions, interviews, typical working conditions, required education and training, expected earnings, plus links to related occupations and other useful resources specially chosen to encourage further investigation.
