location that you can access anytime and place. Think of it as a career launch pad
for career success.
Why invest time in your Career Rocket?

true for those career seekers who have an identified career goal. Those with career
goals are more inclined to perform well and achieve greater academic and career
success, taking hold of their lives and their futures!

development activities, guide you in the selection of a major course of study or
certificate program, and assist you to secure an executive internship and a career.
What is a Career Rocket E-Portfoliosm?
Career Rocket E-Portfolio is an automated guidance technology designed as a user-friendly
online career development system. Career Rocket technology is a tool to track your
individual educational and professional accomplishments from school to throughout
a lifetime and document those accomplishments in a Career Rocket E-Portfolio, similar
to a resume but with more and better competency-signaling information for people
just beginning their careers. Your E-Portfolio will help employers and/or continuing
education counselors understand not only your state of preparation for career commencement
but also to help match your knowledge, skills, and interests to various career opportunities
and educational tracks. You can access your E-Portfolio at any point in time and
utilize the tool to best suite your needs.
You can customize your portfolio to include assessment scores and results, reference
recommendations, educational information, paid and unpaid work and internship experience
information, special skills, awards, and work samples.
When you register on Career Rocket you can access activities that promote the creation
of your portfolio of personal, career and education-related experiences. Career
Rocket E-Portfoliosm makes this information convenient for you to access and use,
over the long haul.

project, the Executive Internship program, will be able to elect to use this secure
site to link their Career Rocket E-Portfolio (without the inclusion of any of their
personal information) strengths and abilities and interests with a screened and
