Formerly known as “Burning Glass,” Career Launch is a great tool for exploring careers, and internships.
Some of the many opportunities offered by Career Launch include:
- Explore careers by St. Petersburg College programs of study
- Research a program of study, job, employer or skill
- Explore my career and internship options
- See where my experience can take me
Once you click on the jobs/internship search tab you will be able to see job results for your program of study, jobs for which you have been encouraged to apply for, and jobs you have recently viewed. You can start a new search by clicking on “Search for jobs” tab on the right hand side that will take you to a new page. The search job postings page allows you to search for jobs or internships by different criteria such as state/city search, ZIP Code radius search, job posting date, occupation, program of study or resume matching. You will need to upload a resume in order to be able to apply for a job. Career Launch allows you to create or upload a resume. If you do not have a resume, Optimal Resume is another great resource for creating a resume, which can also be found under “My Courses.” Click on a job posting you are interested in, and you will be able to see general information about the position including the job title, company information, location, salary, job description, job requirements, and job qualifications. On the top of the page you will see a “How to apply for this job” link that will redirect you to information about the application process. In addition, a “BOOKMARK THIS INFO” link is available for you allowing you to go back and review the job information later.
Once you log in under student login, go to “My Courses,” scroll to the bottom to the right side of the page, and under “Additional Resources” there is a hyperlink to Career Launch!
