North Carolina’s Career Information System

The world of work is changing fast. Occupations, work environments, and employer’s needs have significantly shifted, and many students and workers aren’t aware of today’s best career opportunities or how to prepare to win these jobs of the future. North Carolinians now have a unified, quality source that will provide the knowledge people need to power better futures and economic development in our state. North Carolina’s new career information system, NCcareers, aims to solve the career information gap - offering everyone a one-stop solution for career resources in the state. The breadth and complexity of building NCcareers has taken years of collaboration between many North Carolina agencies and institutions, and it continues to grow daily into one of the best career resources available on the Internet.

It's worth a look if you haven't already visited the website. Please enjoy your e-Update!
