The Arkansas CareerExplorer, powered by Headed2:

  • The Arkansas CareerExplorer is a solution designed for Arkansas, by a team with a long history of highly regarded and successful state solutions, including: the California CareerZone, Pennsylvania CareerZone, and the Nevada Career Explorer.
  • The CareerExplorer is focused on helping to ensure that every student has a plan, not just the ones destined for a 4 year college.
  • The system offers a best-in-class user experience that is accessible, fun, and easy to use.
  • The Arkansas CareerExplorer provides a robust suite of management features including pre-populated lesson plans, easy user grouping, single-sign on (so you don’t have to worry about your students forgetting passwords), integration with Triand (to easily, and automatically, import student data), and our unique Local Opportunities Network, which offers a way to integrate community and local business partnerships directly into the CareerExplorer experience.
  • The Arkansas Career Explorer empowers your students with free access to the system for life. We believe exploration is a lifelong process, so our commitment to you is that for districts that subscribe, students will be able to access their accounts in the Arkansas CareerExplorer even after they are no longer in school.
