Give students a reason to finish their education

When students have a career vision, they’re more likely to complete their program of study on time… and succeed in their careers. Career Coach gives them that vision. This powerful online service uses Lightcast's comprehensive labor market data to help students find careers that match their strengths—and discover programs at your college that will prepare them for success.
