What is Career Coach?

Career Coach is a powerful online tool that uses comprehensive labor market data to help you find careers that match your strengths—and discover study programmes at The Sheffield College that will prepare you for success.

If you're not sure what you'd like to do in the future, you can use Career Coach's assessment tool to find out which careers are linked to your skills and interests. Or if you already have an idea of the career you want, you can use Career Coach to find more detailed information about specific job roles, including common daily tasks, salaries and job opportunities in your local area. Once you have a career goal in mind, Career Coach can match you up with study programmes at The Sheffield College that will help make your career goals a reality.

You can also use Career Coach to browse live job vacancies, so you can see the kind of skills and qualifications employers are after, and even use the platform to build your own profile and CV.

How do I use Career Coach?

Career Coach has a variety of different functions, but essentially these can be divided into

  • Careers quiz - the online questionnaire will help you to figure out which careers you're best suited to based on your skills and interests
  • Labour market information - detailed information about a variety of job roles, how many openings there are in your area and even some live vacancies
  • Courses at The Sheffield College - find out which of our courses can help you get the job that you want

Accessing Career Coach

Using the Career Coach tool is really simple, just start by clicking this link to head to the Career Coach website.

You don't need to provide any details to use the site, however if you want to save any of your quiz results or course matches you'll need to create a profile (you can use the same profile later if you want to create a CV or apply for the job vacancies!).

Getting started

If you don't know what you'd like to do in the future, you can take Career Coach's 6-question quiz to help you figure out what areas you would be well suited to. By answering the questions about what you like and dislike you can discover your most prevalent personality types, and which broad career pathways relate most to your personality traits.
