EAC launches online career search tool

By Lori Dugan

Thatcher, AZ—Eastern Arizona College is pleased to announce that it has launched Career Coach, a free online tool that allows students and community members to explore potential careers.

Career Coach can be accessed by visiting EAC’s website at www.eac.edu. Through a simple keyword search, students and any visitor to the College’s website can learn about the employment prospects of careers they want to research. “The real-time information is customized to the College’s geographic region and includes detailed wage estimates and up-to-date job postings associated with any career, on a local or national level,” says Glen Snider, EAC’s institutional research director and administrator of the new search tool.

Users are directed to the College’s programs when searching for specific jobs. “If a career doesn’t look like the right fit, individuals can search for similar jobs and see the largest skill gaps to fill to move to that career. They can also search for careers based on the College’s top training programs — or the program or major they are interested in,” said Snider.

Career Coach includes a built-in resume builder to help students and jobseekers quickly and efficiently put together an updated resume with key skills and job experience highlighted.

For more information about Career Coach, contact the Institutional Research Office at (928) 428-8217, or visit www.eac.edu.
