FSW Launches ‘Career Coach’ For Students and SWFL Community

Feb 22, 2017

Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) launched “Career Coach” today, an online tool for students and members of the community wanting to explore local and state job listings, wage and salary information, and degrees for chosen careers. 

Career Coach features a short and long career assessment that suggests potential career fields and goes even further by allowing visitors to explore job descriptions, salary projections, growth rates, potential employers, the amount of education required for a specific position and even offering real-time local and state job listings from Indeed.com.

The new service is available at www.FSW.edu/careercoach and can be used anytime, anywhere by middle or high schools, prospective FSW students, current FSW students and members of the Southwest Florida community seeking a new career opportunity.

“Our mission is to prepare students for successful and productive lives. Career Coach not only helps them set goals and stay on track while taking classes, it also assists them after graduation by suggesting options for advanced degrees or leading them directly to local job listings in their field,” said Dr. Laura Antczak, Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Success.

Besides being accessible at larger college events such as the FSW Open Houses, Transfer Fairs and Career Fairs, FSW will expand Career Coach’s reach by servicing alumni, local workforce training programs and community organizations.
