For everyone who’s not sure how their interests and strengths might line up to an appropriate job, the Career Matcher answers that question. By translating user interests and passions into a practical career, it shows people how to get paid for doing what they love. Users begin by entering their best interest, skill or hobby, e.g. “detail-oriented” or “creative.” Then they select a career field like “computer/information technology.” The result is a list of occupations that correspond to the previous choices: in this case, “computer software engineers” and “computer software engineers, applications.”

After finding out a relevant occupation, the next (optional) step is to get contacted by a representative from a school which offers a degree related to the chosen occupation. Once the form is completed, a page will outline that occupation’s description with knowledge, skills, and abilities; detailed work activities; and both national and zip-code-based salary information.

“Choosing the right degree can be critical to a successful career,” says Kevin Herendeen, General Manager. “The team at has created a Career Matcher tool to help people match their strengths and interests with colleges that offer degrees leading to their chosen career.”
