There are many computer programs and websites that can help you find out more about jobs and careers that may interest you and ones that can help you choose which one’s right for you.
The most common programs available in the Greater Merseyside area are:
Kudos – is an interactive career matching program.
The program asks you a series of questions about your skills and qualifications, your health and your attitude to different aspects of work e.g. would you rather work in or outdoors?
Careerscape – is a companion program to Kudos
and offers careers information on over 1800 careers and includes photos and video clips of many job situations.
Exodus (Careers Abroad) – gives information on living, working and studying abroad including all European Community countries, the US and Canada and Australia and New Zealand among others.
Some of these programs or other similar programs e.g. Jobs Explorer Database (JED) are available in some schools and colleges. Check with your school or college’s careers staff or your Connexions Personal Adviser for which ones are available in your school or college.
(Please note, if your school or college does not have a Career Connect Adviser, you might not be able to get access to these programs)
