Job Explorer Database

Careers education and guidance is at its best when it taps into the user's natural sense of curiosity.

C+K Careers presents Job Explorer Database (Jed), making careers information understandable, interesting, and engaging. It has information on 840 jobs (over 2500 career titles) presented in a clear and lively way that students of all abilities can understand. Jed has a 'get clicking' attitude with lots of pathways through the program, including over 340 high quality video case studies, pictures, quizzes, 'top tens', career facts of the day, and text. Jed's quizzes take minutes to do, not hours, so that users can get on with exploring careers and thinking about what will and won't suit them.
