OCIS will transition to OhioMeansJobs K-12
The Ohio Department of Education’s Ohio Career Information System (OCIS) has delivered reliable, up-to-date career information for more than 30 years. Throughout this time, OCIS has evolved and adapted in response to technological changes and has continued to be an engaging tool that’s relevant to users.
Beginning fall 2014, OCIS will evolve once again and will become part of OhioMeansJobs. OhioMeansJobs is already the state’s premiere job and résumé bank. OhioMeansJobs K-12 will offer comprehensive, career development tools, online training and resources specifically for students and teachers. Students will be able to learn more about their career interests and in-demand jobs, build résumés, search for college and training programs, create a budget based on future expenses, and develop meaningful academic and career plans for high school and beyond. OhioMeansJobs is available at no cost, which means we’ll truly have a “home base” for online career exploration and planning for all Ohioans.
What should you do now? Information currently saved in OCIS will need saved or printed outside of the system before July 1, 2014. Below is additional information to support the transition to OhioMeansJobs K-12:
Individual Academic and Career Plan (IACP)
The IACP is a tool to facilitate the college and career planning process. It's recommended that students begin developing their IACP in the middle grades and update it annually throughout high school.
