Does this problem resonate with you?
You need to know what occupations your graduates can actually do. But listing 1 or 2 seems to fall short of compelling someone to go to school in this climate. Worse, so many students are taking part-time paths to go to school that they are looking for related jobs while in school.
You and your student advising teams are struggling to expand options.
Our Solution: InfoSurf's Options-based Career Explorers are designed for those first, early reviews of options across an ocean of career choices that connect to your programs with just a few minutes of focus.
Preview this with our free online tools for high schoolers.
All of these other tools take immediate deep dives into particular careers or programs without immediately identifying groups of occupations with overlapping skills, knowledge or education. That's the InfoSurf getting started advantage with career exploration. We compliment whatever tools you already use, or get your clients and students started without those advanced tools.
Our data comes from public, government data sets and always links to the national profiles from O*Net that your advisors already use. You will lovediscovering what you really have to offer!

Your Problem: You and your students have a few minutes to queue through career options. If someone has time, fabulous tools from the likes of Burning Glass, Focus 2, EMSI, or O*Net can take deep dives into interests, skills, and education. Usually, though, that luxury of time is not when anyone is meeting with you.
Our Solution: InfoSurf's Options-based Career Explorers are low cost eBooks and Excel-based eSearchers. These tools provide easy, fast, expansive scans over sets of related jobs that have overlapping skills and knowledge. The information takes a few focused minutes to review and demonstrates multiple careers for any particular path. Students get started with confidence. Other career explorers can deepen or refine choices, but InfoSurf gets everyone started regardless.
Based on government data sets, we include the most important information -- like typical degree level and approximate wage -- up front so that informed choices can be quickly evaluated. eManuals are searchable, printable PDFs with live links to O*Net profiles. Bundles available.

Your Problem: So few candidates seem to fit the open positions. Downsized employees need some hope. Software or data portals can help make decisions, but are often hard to tune or expensive to implement.
Our Solution: A few of InfoSurf's Options-based Career Explorers are particularly helpful for HR professionals to broaden the funnel of possibilities for hiring or transitioning:
- Career Flow is a compendium of 10-20 common occupation changes to and from each of the 1100+ occupation classes -- people moving to and from jobs with little to no additional training. Hires or next steps could come from surprising places.
- Job Title Surfer shows the most common 7700+ job titles grouped by occupations. You can find more job titles that match your hires or your outgoing employees.
- Shoreline Career-Education Browser is particularly helpful when you hire or transition new graduates, or require advanced degrees.
- The eSearcher Excel tool, Career-Education Triangulator, helps when you have lots of lookups on job titles or education paths in a short period of time.
Your Problem: I need a job, but I don't know what I can do.
Our Solution: Get started here with a quick scan of options regardless of where you are in your career arc. You can see what you might do today and where you might go in the future.
Our Options-based Career Explorer eBooks will help you find many more options.
We offer statistical and scientific consulting that allows you to keep your projects on track: grant writing, peer reviews, research coordination and review, producing textbook material, second opinions and review on experiment process, outcomes, and data modeling. You will love collaborating!
