The solution is positioned to offer access to 3.3 million students entering higher education and 32 million existing higher education students. We provide the tools, resources and services using a comprehensive student centered platform, enabling the students to make informed decisions and map out their degree and career goals. These services include, personality assessment (Holland Code), degree and college selection, student networking as well as group learning. Features also include access to college resources (student portal, academic support, instructional technology) and collaboration with companies and recruiters.
MyColLife is a highly practical, user-friendly tool that helps guide students toward careers that they will find fulfilling. MyColLife provides the resources that allows students to conduct self-analysis and career exploration with assistance from professionals and parents or independently. I was pleasantly surprised by MyColLife’s allowance for the user to build a personal portfolio of credentials and experiences. In my 20 plus years of youth development I have never seen a comparable service for students. My sincere congratulations to Sam Kann and the entire MyColLife team on developing such an innovative strategy to assist students at such a transformational time in their lives!

MyColLife.com is a world class online resource for students, parents and school counselors interested helping to define a student’s career direction. The application is very robust, taking the student from career assessment, finding the right job and identifying education alternatives. It is a must have application for all school counselors. And in this time of tight budgets, it is free to use.
