Elevating Your Career Exploration with AI: Journeys Map’s Latest Advancements

Author: Rich Portelance

2023 was certainly a year to remember. From a technology point of view, there was no bigger story than the advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its myriad uses. While controversy exists, there is plenty of quality work being done to properly harness the technology for the betterment of all. We feel the advancements to our underlying systems fits this profile. 

As many know, Journeys Map leverages Education and CTE (Career and Technical Education) Standards to power our career pathways system. Like GPS guidance does for your car trips, Journeys Map works when a person provides their ‘current’ location (school, career, interests and/or skill base), and desired outcome — to map a path to the stated destination. The mapped directions include career information and the training and skills needed to reach the destination and find success. A challenge our technology team has faced in developing the map is finding a way to integrate the millions of existing CTE Standards while keeping up with the continual flow of updates and changes to them. In the past, there was lots of hands-on work required to make this happen, meaning it would be impossible to add all existing CTE standards to the system. However with machine learning and AI, that’s about to change.
