CAREER CRUISING: Career Cruising provides access to assessment tools, detailed occupation profiles and comprehensive post-secondary education information to help students move seamlessly through the career exploration and planning process. At the same time, you have access to the real-time information and the statistics you need to track your progress and achievement.

All Grade 10 students at MBCI complete a career project to become familiar with career cruising. They are given a username and password so that they can continue to use the program throughout the high school for career exploration as well as resume and cover letter development.
