Helpful Resources


After signing up for an account on CareerStarter make sure to check your inbox for the registration email you will be sent shortly after. Your educator account will not be officially set up until you complete the process noted in that email.


Have students register here then verify their email address. It’s highly recommended for them to use a personal email rather than a school email so they will have access to notifications and their accounts after graduation.

Find lesson plans, customizable flyers, PowerPoints, and walkthrough videos to share with students and make implementing the program into your curriculum that much easier.


Here are step by step instructions on how students have their resume automatically formatted and download it after.
