Careercruising.com is designed to help students discover the career pathway that’s right for them, whatever it might be. Using personal assessment and career matching tools, students learn more about themselves and are better able to identify careers that fit their interests and aptitudes. The Living Portfolio tool is an Individual Learning Plan that grows with each student. It’s where they store and share what they’re doing, with teachers, counselors, parents and friends.
