Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) is launching Career Coach, a free online tool that allows students and community members to explore potential careers. Career Coach can be accessed by visiting the NICC homepage at www.nicc.edu and accessing the “Explore Careers” link in the Quick Links area.
Through a simple keyword search, students and any visitor to the NICC website can learn about the employment prospects of careers they want to research and programs available to help them reach their goals. The real-time information is customized to the College’s district and border area and includes detailed wage estimates and growth outlook associated with any career.
Individuals can also complete short career interest assessments, browse programs and search for a variety of jobs associated with NICC programs.
Career Coach includes a built-in resume builder to help students and job seekers quickly and efficiently put together an updated resume with key skills and job experience highlighted.
This workforce solution is funded by the IHUM Consortium which is 100% financed through a $15,000,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration. IHUM offers resources to the public specifically targeting those eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) for workers, unemployed/underemployed Iowans, and U.S. veterans.
