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:

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.
