Northeast State students now have access to King  University’s Career Matrix

BRISTOL, Tenn. — King University is helping Northeast State Community College students select potential career paths.

King has entered into a partnership agreement with NSCC that enables Northeast State to use King’s proprietary web-based resource, Career Matrix, to assist students in selecting potential career paths.

“This web-based resource was developed through the collaborative efforts of King’s IT department, the four school deans, department chairs and program directors, along with career development and career service staff,” King President Greg Jordan said in a news release. “We have extended this collaboration with Northeast State Community College as a means to provide students of both schools a resource to assist them in their educational and professional development.” 

Jordan said both Bristol, Tenn.-based King and Blountville-based Northeast State, which have multiple campuses, “recognize that identifying and planning a career path early on is of great benefit to his or her academic persistence and success after graduation.” 

Career Matrix produces a range of career opportunities for the student based on his or her responses to four sets of interest-related questions. The profile matches the student to possible career paths, producing a list of potential jobs.
