This fall, Florida has joined Colorado, Tennessee and Texas, in releasing a “Launch My Career” interactive tool called Launch My Career Florida. This tool helps future students identify in-demand jobs and estimate the return on investment for an array of higher education choices.

Launch My Career Florida allows users to pick a career path by showing in-demand jobs and skills. The tool can also help users select institutions and programs by providing information about certificate and degree programs at Florida’s public colleges. This information includes the average cost of attendance, post-graduation earnings, and Gallup survey data about how satisfied students are in their careers.

This tool was created in partnership between the Florida Chamber Foundation, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, American Institutes for Research, and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.

WDQC applauds the states who are making more information about education and training available to students and parents.
