Sophomore Katie Martin from Roxton, Texas, looks at the new Career
Coach website through Paris Junior College’s website. The site allows
students and the community to explore potential careers, what jobs are
available in the region, what skills they need for a particular career and
what the regional pay level is.
Paris Junior 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.
The new website helps job seekers figure out what skills they need for available jobs and where to get them if they don’t have them.
Paris Junior College is please to make Career Coach available to prospective students, current students, alumni and the community, said Dr. Pamela Anglin, President of Paris Junior College. This is a wonderful tool to allow individuals to see what jobs are available in the region and research employment prospects for careers of interest.
Dr. Anglin added that there is a resume builder included to help students and jobseekers.
Career Coach provides data on wages, employment trends, education opportunities and job postings in Paris, Greenville, Sulphur Springs and in cities within a 50-mile radius.
After a user types in an occupation, the website generates a list of data and charts, including a career preparation tab that shows what applicable programs are offered through one of Paris Junior Colleges three campuses.
The site helps people find jobs and good careers and helps them understand what kind of academic preparation they need to achieve their goals, Dr. Anglin said.
The website, which does not require registration, was developed by University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) in partnership with Metro, the Avenue Scholars Foundation and the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce.
While the website is geared toward students, job seekers from the community and people looking to switch careers also may find it useful. Dr. Anglin explained that users could look at the skills gap analysis and see what is required of them to make the transition from one job to another.
Unlike other job-searching tools, the website offers all necessary information in one place, including a résumé-building feature. It’s also expected to be used in classrooms.
A teacher could use the website in class and just have students explore an occupation, Dr. Anglin pointed out. For instance, a student can type in ‘architect’ and find related occupations, such as draftsman.
Career Coach is a one-stop shop for anyone exploring career opportunities, said Dr. Anglin.
To check out the new online tool, go to www.parisjc.edu. You can then click on Career Coach, located in the left center of the page. This will take you the main page where you can view a tutorial and begin building a resume and check job outlooks, educational opportunities, etc.
Whether looking for new employment opportunities or just starting out their careers, jobseekers need reliable, up-to-date information on jobs in this region. Career Coachs simple interface and quick workflow will help generate the information required for career and education requirements.
