Career Coach

A tool to assist you in finding a major!


“As a community college we understand not everyone has a clear path into what they want to do for work, nor what’s available. This new tool is the first step in the research process. It’s also a great tool for those already in the workforce who want to explore new career paths.”Dr. Kim Dale, President for Western Wyoming Community College

Western Wyoming Community College has partnered with Lightcast to provide you with a new career coach tool. Through a series of questions, this web-based application helps you find a career that matches your strengths and profiles the education you need for those professions.

When you have a career vision, you’re more likely to complete a program of study on time and succeed in your career. Wyoming Boots helps you find that vision. This powerful online service uses Lightcast’s comprehensive labor market data to help you find careers that match your strengths—and discover programs at Western that will prepare you for success.

While exploring careers, you can see salaries, required education, and other helpful information to allow you to make better decisions relating to your desired educational goals. Career Coach also has a resume-building tool for you to begin drafting your resume. This tool includes suggested tasks and skills that you may want to include in your resume based on your work experience.

Wyoming Boots has been mapped to Western’s specific programs and implemented for the next three years. First-time students will learn about Wyoming Boots during their Individual Advising Appointment (IAA). Upon completion, they will discover which major offered at Western matches their strengths and interests early on.
