Website offers career research tool
The Future Ready Iowa website, www.futurereadyiowa.gov, is a one-stop shop where students and adults can research and evaluate career opportunities in Iowa and plan their path to landing a rewarding job.
The website also identifies the education and training needed to pursue those careers as well as financial resources that might be available to attain that education or training.
The mobile-friendly site features a clearly defined menu that makes navigation easy.
Iowa’s Career Coach tool, www.iowacareercoach.gov, is a main feature of the site and is a resource for career exploration that allows users to find high-demand, high-salary jobs and related education/training providers. Career Coach also includes a career assessment, military to civilian occupation cross-walk and resume builder.
The Future Ready Iowa site was created to support the Future Ready Iowa initiative and its goal of 70 percent of Iowa’s workforce attaining education or training beyond high school by the year 2025.
