Career Pathways

Recommend career pathways for job seekers and training program participants.


Training providers or talent applications serving students and job seekers wishing to recommend career pathways for users may use our career transitions model to suggest next steps based on user's unique education, skills, work experience and interests.

Our model looks at more than 1,000 potential occupations to recommend best fit careers. It does this by taking in information about the job seeker to infer their skills. Then, it compares their skills to the skills needed to transition into another occupation. Results can be filtered to align with users area of interest.

For more information on how our modeling works, head to the Modeling Approach section.
