In partnership with Ivy Tech Community College and the Indiana Governor’s Workforce Cabinet, Indiana residents 18 and older can take advantage of no-cost career coaching from the new virtual career coaching program, InsideTrack, which launched on June 14 of this year. This national nonprofit pioneered the use of executive-style coaching for learners, workers and individuals focused on career goals. Career coaches from InsideTrack will assist participants in advancing towards their career goals based on their unique strengths and circumstances. Individuals will gain tailored coaching support to help them plan and take action to either rejoin the workforce or determine what education or training will help them advance their current career.
“This work is about empowering working adults with the sort of skills and support they need to plan their next career move, identify the right training and education options, and stand out in today’s competitive job market,” said PJ McGrew, Executive Director of the Governor’s Workforce Cabinet
The idea is to get participants to focus on their long-term goals — with career coaches supporting them in developing the skills they need to make effective career planning decisions, stand out in a competitive employment marketplace, and provide maximum value to their future or current employers.
“We’re here to work with our students on their career aspirations from day one,” said Joe McMichael, executive director of Ivy Tech Fort Wayne’s Career Coaching and Employer Connections office. “We know that partnerships like InsideTrack help us connect our students with the support systems, coaching, and goal-setting they will need to be successful in the modern workforce.”
