Abstract Text

Innovative technology allows counselors to be more efficient with their time with data-driven information to engage students and parents in a way they haven’t been able to do before. The new tools help students discover the intersection of their aptitudes, interests and career opportunities to confidently set a direction for education and career success. Employers’ workforce needs today are disconnected from students at their critical career and education decision points.

The implications include:

  • Critical shortage of qualified candidates for technical careers
  • Low Post-secondary graduation rates
  • High individual education debt: $29,400
  • High under- and unemployment: 49% of college grads
