What is MyMnCareers?

This website helps low-literacy job seekers and English language learners find career planning and work preparation information. Find out more on the MyMnCareers handout (1.09MB, .pdf).

Unique Features of This Site

  • MyMnCareers has three distinct levels of content: beginner ("I am an English Language Learner"), intermediate ("I am Finishing High School or My GED"), and advanced ("I am Done with High School/GED and Want to Advance My Career"). The intermediate and advanced sections have expanded content and more results in the find careers search tool. Students or customers can re-visit MyMnCareers and use another level as they progress in their careers or education. More about the audience for this site is on MyMnCareers Audience.

Production

The idea for MyMnCareers came from Marc Breton, Career Information Director for iSeek Solutions, who wanted to create easily accessible career information for low-literacy adults.

Content for MyMnCareers was managed by Denise Felder and Shelia Cunningham McComb, and edited by Sandy Donovan, Julie Remington, and Lisa Thompson of iSeek Solutions. It was written by Jennifer Asp, Marilyn Curtis, and DJ Dahl of the Saint Paul Public Schools' Ronald M. Hubbs Center for Lifelong Learning. Project managers were Pat Thomas, Director of Southwest Adult Basic Education; Kristine Halling, Hubbs Center Supervisor; and Marc Breton.
