What is the Career Project?

The Career Project is an interactive career profile database that allows students and job seekers a personal and uncensored look into thousands of real careers and jobs through the eyes of the people who work them.  Each career profile has three sections; an extensive interview with the participant about their job, a detailed personal account of an average day on that job, and a question and answer section titled "Ask Me" where you can ask each participant any additional questions about their career.

Can I use The Career Project Questionnaire for my class? Where can I get it?

The Career Project Questionnaire is now available for educational and personal use! It has been popular with our younger students to use it for career day or any assigned career research project. Please email info@thecareerproject.org and we would be happy to send you The Career Project Questionnaire.

 

Do you offer a free trial?

The site is now FREE! Job seekers and students can register free through Facebook connect or through our online registration system. 

 


How does The Career Project recruit mentors?

The Career Project began as a grass roots effort! We started by contacting family, friends and co-workers in a variety of fields and word of mouth quickly spread across the United States.  Once a mentor's profile has been verified as complete we compensate our mentors with specialty coffee cards. We are proud that we have thousands of profiles of mentors from all walks of life in  hundreds of different professions. We add 200-300 profiles monthly of only quality, complete profiles.

 
How do you screen them?

The director has the final approval regarding all profiles.  We do not accept profiles that do not meet our criteria; criteria includes but is not limited too, participants being at least 23 years of age, having at least an associate degree or having worked a minimum of three years and worked at least 25 hours per week in their chosen profession. We do require mentors to use their work email, and if they do not have one, they must provide a contact phone number for work verification.  To register as a mentor please visit www.TheCareerProject.com.

 
I have seen grammar errors on the profiles, will these be fixed?

We do not alter the mentor's content. We do not want to alter their voice, message or information in any capacity. This includes spelling and grammatical errors. We do ask them to review their profile before submitting it to be live on The Career Project.

 If we register our school how would it work?

Students can register through Facebook connect or through our online registration sytem.  They will have to confirm this email address via a confirmation email that is automatically sent after registering.
