CareerOneStop Launches GetMyFuture.org

ST. PAUL, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GetMyFuture–CareerOneStop is pleased to announce the launch of GetMyFuture.org, a
mobile-friendly web portal connecting young adults to career, education,
and job search resources.


Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training
Administration, the site serves young people providing special resources
for those experiencing barriers to success such as involvement in foster
care, addiction, homelessness, teen parenting, or a lack of financial,
family, or community resources.

GetMyFuture.org was developed with input from young adults and youth
program providers in order to ensure it offers culturally relevant and
effective tools and resources. Several unique resources were developed
for the website, including:

  • Interest Assessment – an easy-to-use 30-question assessment that
    matches users’ interests to potential careers. Powered by O*NET’s Mini
    Interest Profiler, GetMyFuture’s Interest Assessment provides a quick
    way for youth to explore their interests and link to fully-developed
    occupation profiles using their phone, computer, or other device.
  • Occupation Profile – a revised graphical display of key occupation
    data including career descriptions, tasks, skills, wages, employment
    projections, education requirements and related training information
    such as certifications, and other occupational information.
  • Videos – First-person success-story videos of young adults who have
    overcome barriers to achieve education or career success.
  • Search tools to find local:

    • Job postings
    • Training and education options
    • Scholarships
    • Benefits assistance and relevant social service programs
    • Apprenticeship opportunities
    • Local businesses and employers
    • American Job Centers
  • Tips, worksheets, and other information designed specifically to help
    youth overcome barriers, explore careers, access education or training
    options, and find, apply for and keep employment.
