About WIN Atlas Virtual Career Coach
WIN Atlas: Virtual College and Career Coach
WIN Atlas is designed for homeschoolers or students who may not have easy access to a guidance counselor and makes planning and exploring for a career path engaging, relevant and exciting. Users of the mobile app can begin with a quick selection of three primary options. 1) I just can’t narrow it down; 2) I know what I want to be; and 3) I have no idea what I want to be. From this initial question, students can quickly and easily engage in narrowing their career interests and plan for road ahead.
Develop Goals and a Plan for Next Steps to College & Career Success
