Use Case

Military Education Counselors needed to help Service members explore & set a career goal, set a career-aligned academic goal, choose the best school for their goals, and share their goals within short advising sessions. Career Path DECIDE was developed with extensive end-user research and feedback as a mobile-friendly product that helps Service Members discover education and career goals without the constraints of a .mil certificate website. Service Members can see career and education progression within a career field to showcase the long-term impacts of career and education decisions through Connected Pathways. The algorithms are derived from survey responses and underlying competency analysis and creates Military affinity metrics for schools. There is also transparency with an index rating based on nontraditional student outcome metrics and recommended by a Presidential Executive Order.
