FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) -- The Kentucky Center for Statistics is launching a free online tool to help students and job seekers explore different careers.

The Career Explorer Tool uses four criteria to match Kentuckians with potential jobs: Expected Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities; Desired Salary; Major or Certification; and Desired Occupation.

Josh Benton, the Deputy Secretary for the Education and Workforce Development Cabinet, which houses KYSTATS, said the program can help make a difficult task a bit easier.

“We are excited to provide Kentuckians with a free, online platform to explore the career pathways available within the Commonwealth," Benton said. "Choosing a career can be intimidating, and this tool makes it easier for users to narrow down thousands of occupations to the ones that specifically match their interests and abilities."
