Find the academic programs that lead to your chosen career by using Anne Arundel Community College’s new online program, Career Coach.
Career Coach shows students, including potential students, how the courses and programs offered at AACC will lead to careers that interest them. This user-friendly web-based tool provides valuable information on wages, employment trends and job availability for careers, as well as the education that will help users reach their career goals.
“People may know what career they wish to pursue, but they don’t always know the educational background and training that are necessary to prepare for that career,” said Patricia A. Casey-Whiteman, interim vice president for learning at AACC. “Career Coach will show them which jobs are in demand in this region and then provides them a pathway to the degree or certificate programs that would prepare them for the career.”
Career Coach is on the front page of AACC’s website. Click on the purple square for Career Coach, then type in the career you want. Several jobs within that industry, with estimated wages, will appear. Click on each job listed to see statistics for the number of available jobs in the region, as well as the degrees and certificates at AACC that provide a pathway to that career.
