WELCOME TO “CareerTrack”
SOFTWARE DESIGNED FOR CAREER COUNSELORS.
WHAT IS CareerTrack DESIGNED TO DO?
CareerTrack is designed to help students understand who they are and apply that knowledge in an engaging and an actionable way. It enables a counselor to start an evidence based conversation with a student pointed at career clusters, particular career paths and personal goal setting.
HOW DOES CareerTrack WORK?
Schools purchase an unlimited use software license or a per student use license. With the purchase, each participating counselor at the school receives a dedicated and locked iPad for accessing the CareerTrack student records. Student records are secure and only accessible by the authorized counselor. Student assessment results and communication strategies are stored on the company cloud. Counselors gain access to the cloud by scanning a unique bar code assigned to each counselor.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO COUNSELORS?
Saves time, more efficient, uses mobile smartphones for student access. With student to counselor ratios typically greater than 200:1, CareerTrack enables a counselor to quickly identify a student’s career clusters, direct the student to certain exploration strategies and monitor the student’s progress.
WHAT ARE SOME CareerTrack OPTIONS?
A counselor may select “Communication Strategies.” The counselor selects a strategy from a series of CareerTrack options extracted from the Company cloud, modifies the strategy for the student, uses the strategy with the student, records the student’s progress and considers other strategies for different student goals.
IS THE STUDENT INFORMATION SECURE?
Yes, each student expressly opts into the program by inserting a unique school code into the student’s profile. This secure authentication process displays a screen to the counselor with various options. For example, one option displays a list of all the students in the counselor’s high school that have taken the Company assessment tool. The counselor may click on a student’s name and view the student’s assessment results, personality style and an explanation of what the results mean.
WHAT ABOUT CAREER STRATEGIES?
The counselor may select a CareerTrack option such as “Career Strategies.” This selection links the counselor with the Company cloud. Only counselors have access to this information. In this option, the counselors can explore challenges associated with different career paths for each trait and develop strategies to work with the student to achieve defined goals. These challenges and solutions can be added to the student’s record to monitor their progress. With this process, the counselor creates a digital record of time-based assessment results and strategy implementation in real time accessible by the counselor, with the dedicated iPad, for review at any time of the day or from any location.
What is the iPad used for?
Counselors use the dedicated iPad to log strategies and student progress. For example, each student has a record that is accessed by the counselor only that contains all communication with the student and assessment results.
