Geographic Solutions, in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions, recently launched Career Solutions, a redesigned website that features a fresh new look and enhanced customization options for students.

Career Solutions is an online education solution that provides New Mexico’s youth and educators with a comprehensive set of interactive tools meant to help students plan for their future careers. The popular website includes self-assessments, guided career exploration, education and experience planning, and a powerful job search engine.

The website delivers personalized service by factoring self-assessments and labor market information into career exploration results, allowing students to identify careers that are not only suited for them, but are also in-demand and pay a living wage.

“The Career Solutions website is considered among the best career exploration tools in the country for the breadth of the information available and the user-friendly, interactive and engaging nature of the system,” said Erin Thompson, New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions’ acting secretary. “These enhancements and increased capabilities will serve to provide an even greater and more meaningful user experience.”

Echoing Thompson’s sentiments, survey feedback from student users at career fairs throughout New Mexico have emphasized the impact Career Solutions is having on the career exploration experience, with many of them noting the website’s ease of use and abundance of career information. Other student commenters appreciated the abilities to compare and explore occupations by family or cluster, which can help them discover new opportunities.

Rich in guidance, Career Solutions also provides education and training resources for students to utilize based on their chosen career path, including an intelligent scholarship search and college preparation checklists. For those seeking a job at any step in their educational journey, the website incorporates everything a student needs to land a job, including the ability to save and apply to jobs, create résumés, build cover letters, and practice for job interviews. Users also have the option to create a secure, personal account where they can save interests and personal progress. 

Geographic Solutions, Inc., has been working with the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions for more than 16 years. The Career Solutions website has become a primary destination for students, educators, and job seekers throughout New Mexico since it first launched in 2016.
