New Futures launched its interactive, online tool, New Futures Career Navigator, in December 2013 to much acclaim.
The Career Navigator focuses on the careers that can be obtained with a shorter-term post-secondary degree or credential, and features the following components:
- Career Assessment: the Career Cluster Inventory determines the user’s top three career clusters based on their interests
- Seventy in-demand careers and information about them including job outlook, pay potential and the amount of education or training required
- Local, post-secondary educational pathways to those careers
- Local success stories
- Additional related resources
The Career Navigator was funded in part by the DC Office of State Superintendent of Education (OSSE).
