More than 2 million Floridians of all ages rely on MyCareerShines, powered by Kuder®

More than 2 million Floridians of all ages rely on MyCareerShines, powered by Kuder® to learn about themselves, discover the many options and opportunities for their futures, and access the information and tools needed to reach their goals.

A new success story featuring MyCareerShines demonstrates how schools and districts in the state are using the system with their students of all ages, from pre-K through college.

The success story features a student success coach from Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, and middle school and high school teachers from Seminole County Public Schools and Miami-Dade County Public Schools, respectively. Below are excerpts from what these educators shared with us.


MyCareerShines Supports Learners of All Ages

For Postsecondary Students

Stacey Speller, a student success coach for Bethune-Cookman University, uses Kuder Journey® to help students narrow down majors and make career decisions. Speller explained that students found the system “easy to use,” and provides “answers to questions they never took the time to think about.”

For High School Students

“MyCareerShines has resulted in many aha moments for my students,” said Angel Schmiedt, a Workplace Essentials Teacher at Miami Jackson Senior High School. “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.”

For Middle School Students

“Having every middle school student in Seminole County Public Schools use MyCareerShines has had a very positive impact on how students learn about themselves, careers and the future of work, said Michelle Orozco, a teacher in the district who administers the Kuder Navigator® component of the system. “They are able to design their career pathway using this amazing platform.”

For Elementary School Students

“Through Galaxy, I envision a complete culture shift for what it means to be 'college ready,' said Speller, whose two children use Kuder Galaxy® . “Getting our kids, from the time they enter the structured school system, which are arguably their most impressionable years and feeding them information on the many careers, in a language they can comprehend, is absolutely brilliant.”
