Career Matching

One of our newest features is Career Matching. Using the U.S. Department of Labor's O*NET database of occupations, a user can be matched to a plethora of career opportunities, personalized by their unique personality type and traits.

Each O*NET career features it's own title, description, and image, as well as the education and experience level required for the position. Additional information, such as salary data and employment outlook, are also accessible to be displayed to a user.
