Two years ago, the U.S. Department of Labor launched GetMyFuture.org, a mobile-friendly web application that helps youth plan their careers, explore education and training options, and search and apply for jobs. The app is one of many resources found at CareerOneStop, a website to help people plan and achieve their career, education, and employment goals.
Developed with input from young adults and program providers, GetMyFuture.org includes career interest assessments, interactive informational videos, job search engines, and tips and best practices. The app also connects young people to in-person career services and resources to overcome the challenges of addiction; homelessness; criminal conviction; or a lack of financial, family or community support.
The GetMyFuture app enhances the existing CareerOneStop site, which receives more than two million visits each month, by increasing accessibility to disconnected young people and providing new customized content for those seeking career services.
