Career Cruising Network is an online program that utilizes information from local employers and professionals as an integral part of career exploration resources available to students. Our goal is to engage and inspire productive career planning by helping students learn about companies and careers in their own community.
Career Cruising Network business partners (employers and professionals) can choose the level of participation that fits their schedule, there is no cost to participate, and registration is easy! We encourage you to take a look deeper into the inspiring roles we have available for our partners.
Students (grades 6-12) and educators at over 60 schools in six counties participate in Career Cruising Network - click HERE to see the full list of CC Network schools.
A Company Profile in Career Cruising Network gives students access to important information such as your location(s), website, history, career opportunities, and other company details. You can also include a link to a HR/Career webpage and feature up to six company videos. By creating a Company Profile, you are not only providing students with great career information, but also getting your company’s name out and sparking interest in the future leaders of tomorrow!
A Career Coach is an online career mentor who answers students' questions for the CC-Network career discussion board. Answering questions will provide valuable insight about what it takes to work in your field and helps them understand what really goes on in their careers of interest!
Work-based Learning Activities engage students in learning activities outside of the classroom with company tours and job shadows. You can also serve as a classroom speaker or career fair representative, provide internships, or offer summer or part-time jobs. These activities give students the opportunity to establish business connections and engage in professional settings.
Approval to participate as a Career Cruising Network volunteer communicating with students via the Career Cruising Network system - the career message board, the company message board, Work-based Learning Activities, and/or the student messaging tool - is pending a national criminal background and sex offender registry check conducted using BackgroundChecks.com at the time of registration.
