First-of-its-kind tool combines career roadmaps with online training recommendations to make an immediate career impact

Simplilearn, the largest provider of online training and professional certification courses, today announced the launch of CareerPlay.com, a first-of-its kind tool integrating your LinkedIn profile, is aimed at empowering professionals with an information-rich roadmap to their dream career. For aspiring professionals unsure of their next career step, or those curious to know what skills are in demand, CareerPlay identifies career paths based on the users’ existing skill sets and experience, and provides actionable step-by-step advice on training and certifications to reach their career goals.

According to a 2014 YouGov survey, 79% of American workers are interested in learning new things to further advance their careers. CareerPlay helps the overwhelming majority of working Americans plan for a career - not just a job - by developing skills to reach their goals.

CareerPlay provides automated and custom career advice to aid in the search process, outlining a variety of different options for users to make informed decisions as they plan their career path. By sharing basic information from LinkedIn, CareerPlay develops several ‘dream jobs’ relevant to the users’ background and experience, each including information such as:

  • Multiple industry-recommended paths to help users define their career goals
  • Key skills required to reach each goal and an actionable roadmap of relevant online courses
  • Salary information at each stage of the suggested path

“We’ve worked with more than two million professionals looking to enhance their careers, and consistently see that the gap between professionals ‘doing good’ and ‘doing great’ in their careers is simply a matter of setting goals and developing a clear path to reach them,” said Michael Stebbins, Head of US Operations at Simplilearn. “The problem we hear all too often is that professionals don’t know where to begin. CareerPlay helps professionals define and set career goals, and provides them with guidance to reach their goals. We believe this will be an invaluable tool for those seeking to take immediate, concrete steps to move their career to the next level and ultimately secure their dream jobs.”

Currently in beta, CareerPlay is focused on information technology, computer software and internet careers with plans to expand into healthcare, finance, marketing, retail and other categories later this year. CareerPlay can be found at http://www.careerplay.com and will be available as an App for iOS and Android devices later this year.
