Career Shift is an online resource to better understand the current job market. Career Shift aggregates job postings from across multiple job boards to give students a snapshot of current job openings. Results can be filtered based on geography and/or full-time, part-time, internship, contract, and temporary job types.
Using this resource in the Major & Career Exploration Center can be helpful in better understanding what the job market looks like for career fields that a student may be considering. Understanding the job market may help some students recognize that they can make a career from their passions. Other students may see that the job market is not what they had imagined it to be for a particular career.
For students further along in their career exploration, this resource can be helpful in finding open positions to which they may have some interest in applying. Career Shift can help with locating job openings and researching companies and their contacts.
