(Rock County, WI)

A report highlighting the use of the County’s web-based career preparation and readiness platform, which is powered by Career Cruising, was released today. The Spring 2016 Inspire Rock County Report provides a snapshot of the activity, engagement and trends generated from this workforce development tool. A brief summary of the report’s findings are provided below.

The number of students and/or young adults actively using or building-out their Academic and Career Plans (ACP) continues to increase annually. To date, nearly 184,000 logins and more than 230,000 page views have been recorded. At the end of the 2015-2016 academic year, student ACP’s recorded more than 6,500 saved careers and nearly 3,000 higher education targets.

Student and career coaching engagements, as measured by message board posts, are rising too. To date, approximately 3,000 message board posts have been recorded. While this year’s posting total was 10% higher than last year, there is plenty of career coaching expertise and experience – ready and available for student use.

With more than 200 work-based learning activities, divided into 12 distinct categories, there are ample opportunities to connect educators and students with area businesses. Whether looking for internships, job shadowing, company tours and more, participants can leverage the Inspire Rock County platform to make those value-added connections.

As preparations for the fall academic period are just around the corner, this Report serves as a general reminder regarding the utility – as well as functionality –  of the Inspire Rock County platform. As districts continually explore ways to embed this career readiness and preparation tool into their overall programming, these engagement metrics are expected to advance, accordingly.
