WA Career Bridge
The site (www.CareerBridge.wa.gov
) is Washington’s public-facing career and education exploration platform—and includes over 6,500 postsecondary programs in one place. Launched in 2009, Career Bridge is recognized nationally for providing details on how much jobs pay in Washington, whether employment is growing in a particular field, and where to get the education and training to land the job. Career Bridge also includes performance results on employment and earnings outcomes for thousands of Washington postsecondary education programs. This includes everything from registered apprenticeships to short-term, career focused training, to two- and four-year degrees at Washington’s colleges and universities. The site is in the process of a significant nearly $1 million modernization effort that will make it mobile-friendly, add a digital portfolio feature for students to save their career and education searches, and integrate it closely with High School and Beyond Planning.
