Under the “Getting Started” tab there is an area to build your profile and work on occupation matches.
On the “Personal Profile” page you will have to input a minimum of information (First and Last Name, State, and Zip Code).
Also you will be asked to add your education level. The choices range from “Some or No High School” up to “Doctorate.”
Once you complete your personal profile the database will prompt you to complete the “Occupation Matcher.”
On the first page of the Occupation Matcher you will be asked for your preparation level. Levels range from 1: Little or No Preparation to 5: Extensive Preparation
You will then come to the “Occupation Matcher” test. The test consists of 18 “pages” of questions which you will need to state if you would like, dislike, or are unsure about performing a specific task.
After you complete the test, the database returns results with categories showing each interest level in graph form based on the answers to the questions.
Occupations are then selected for you based on your two strongest interest categories and your level of preparation.
When you clicks on a selected occupation, information is displayed about that occupation including recommended skills improvement and available jobs.
The occupation match area of the database also has options to check out secondary occupations matched, in-demand occupations, or search for certain occupations.
By clicking on the “My Accelerator” tab you will find recommended tests and courses. You are able to click on the links to access the tests and skill building exercises.
