MyCareerShines Best Practice"MyCareerShines has resulted in many aha moments for my students." 

I teach the course “Personal, Career, and School Developmental Skills,” which is designed to assist in preparing high school students with the soft and life skills practices needed to prepare them for future careers and further education. While learning the skills and practicing is extremely important in laying the foundation for success, the implementation of MyCareerShines, powered by Kuder® has proven to be the missing link my students needed.

Whether it was after completing the career assessments that gave students insight to career paths aligned with unspoken passions, or when they learned how to explore, compare, and contrast educational costs, or maybe when they gained the ability to seek employment opportunities according to “trending up or down” job feature, the impact of MyCareerShines has resulted in many aha moments for my students.

Educator uses MyCareerShines in classroom with students.

But so much more goes into it. We have a large population of students who start their college journey minimally prepared and uninformed. .

Wasn't there a software out there that could identify what these particular students liked to do, and what they might excel in to start the conversation and lay the groundwork for the student? That's where MyCareerShines, powered by Kuder, and Maggie Miller, lead trainer for MyCareerShines, came in. Here it was, this free software that would do what my team and I envisioned – help our students in their major exploration and career decisions. It was truly an answered prayer.
