The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated from input by a broad range of workers in each occupation.

Next Level Jobs - The Workforce Ready Grant is designed to remove financial barriers that may prevent Hoosiers from getting the training they need for a job in one of Indiana’s 5 high-demand fields. The grant pays for all tuition and regularly assessed fees for qualifying high-value certificates. It can be used at any eligible training provider and covers all courses required to satisfy the qualifying program. The grant is available for up to two (2) years.

University HQ - One of the hardest parts of your career is choosing a profession and then figuring out how to get where you want to be.

This should help give you an idea of what opportunities are available so you can decide what you want to be.

IN Reality - What will it cost to live the way you want? Most of us don't consider this when we think about our future - and rarely in terms of matching up what we "want to do" with the way we want to live.
