Career Search is a versatile tool that lets you quickly look up careers. This is an excellent place to start your career research if you already have an idea of what careers interest you, or if you have already favorited careers and/or completed the Preferences and Interests surveys.
As with other pages, click on hearts to save a career to your favorites, or click on a career name to learn more about it.
To get to the Career Search page, click "Research Careers" in the left-hand menu and then "Career Search".
Searching and Sorting
You can type all or part of a word in any search box to find a list of matching careers. In the example below, typing "nurse" in the Career search box returns all careers with "nurse" in the career name. Note that "Nursery Workers" is included because "nurse" is part of the name.
Careers are automatically sorted A-Z by career name, but you can also sort by any other field, like Personality Type or Pathway, by clicking on the header. In the example below, clicking the "Cluster" header has sorted all careers alphabetically by Cluster.
There are several different filter options to quickly narrow down your list of interesting careers. For example, if you want to see just the careers that you've favorited in other parts of Career Planner, toggle the heart column filter to "Favorited".
Another example is if you want to see the careers recommended to you in Review My Traits. Recall that the strongest matches in Review My Traits were those that matched your results for both the Preferences and the Interests surveys. To see these careers in Career Search, selecting "Yes" for both "Suggested by Preferences" and "Suggested by Interests" will give you a list of your two-star career matches.
To clear a filter selection, just click the "x" at the bottom right corner of the header.
