Microsoft recently announced Career Coach, a Microsoft Teams app powered by LinkedIn. This new Career Coach app will offer personalized guidance for higher education students. Career Coach is powered by an AI-based skill identifier and LinkedIn integration that aligns a student’s comprehensive profile with job market trends.
When should students get started with Career Coach?
- Discover: Students are starting their educational career and it’s helpful to begin exploring a variety of careers and learn more about individual strengths, interests, and aspirations.
- Navigate: Students have a strong sense of the careers that interest them and need to grow their skills, learn how to share their story, and find real-world opportunities to gain experience.
- Land a job: Graduation is near, and students are preparing to be on the job market.
Career Coach also offers faculty and staff advisors with a deeper understanding of students’ skills and career goals so they can align curriculum development with student interests and job market trends.
