The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions’ Economic Research & Analysis Bureau (ER&A) announces the launch of the new Career Solutions, www.nmcareersolutions.com, a powerful online career exploration and all-in-one planning website for New Mexico’s youth, high school and higher education students, and job seekers. The website provides access to a comprehensive set of interactive tools that assist individuals in exploring careers, planning their future, and getting the help they need to reach for and achieve their career goals. Today, more than ever, it is important that New Mexico’s students and youth have powerful resources to help make informed decisions about their career paths. Career Solutions seeks to engage students in the career planning process and provide additional resources for the state’s career educators as they work with youth each and every day.
ER&A produces such a breadth of economic data and labor market information, and they are dedicated to providing and packaging all of that rich information in a relevant, user-friendly way to best reach our students and job seekers. Career Solutions provides a central access point that promotes career awareness, encourages students to evaluate their interests and goals, and empowers them to have wage information, education and experience requirements, and much more at their fingertips.
In addition to numerous interactive tools, Career Solutions features four main sections—Build Your Path, Career Exploration, The Job Search, and Education and Training. “Build Your Path” helps individuals to learn what it takes to explore careers and what different career paths might look like. “Build Your Path” summarizes the different sections of the website in a way that shows how to navigate through the career planning process. “Career Exploration” is the jumping-off-point for exploring careers and includes multiple tools developed to assess interests, explore career options, and plan next steps. “Job Search” provides easy access to tips, tools, and information on the job search process including practice interview questions and a resume builder. “Education and Training” includes what to expect when preparing and applying for colleges and training programs, and how to budget for and finance education. This section also assists the student in deciding whether continuing education beyond high school is right for them.
Students, youth, and job seekers can easily create a Career Solutions account that will allow them to access all tools available through the site, save their favorite occupations in an "Occupation Library," and save the results and inputs of the website's interactive tools in their "Career Solutions Toolbox." There is also information and resources available to parents and educators to help students and individuals make decisions about their career and employment future.
