What is Roadtrip Nation?

Roadtrip Nation is a career exploration organization that helps people turn the things they like into work they love—and they partnered with the College Board to help you do the same! That's the idea behind Career Finder: Start with your interests and strengths, get matched with compatible careers, majors, and leaders (thousands of professionals across industries who really love their jobs!), then build a plan for your future that's true to who you are.

Can I take the quizzes more than once?

Yep! Although you can only have one result set at a time, you can retake the Interests and Work Style quizzes as many times as you want! Just hit the "Edit" button below any of your results to retake that quiz.

Can I make more than one plan?

You can only have one plan at any given time. However, you can always use the left-hand sidebar to go back through your plan and edit any part of it. If you want to start over completely with a blank slate, the easiest way to clear out your plan is by removing all of your planned careers.

How do you use my PSAT/SAT scores to match me with careers?

If you have the premium version of Career Finder and you agree to share your College Board assessment information with Career Finder, your most recent, covered PSAT/SAT scores will automatically be synced with your profile.

The College Board, in partnership with the Human Resource Research Organization (HumRRO), created a linkage between the PSAT and SAT Math, Reading, and Writing and Language test score metrics and occupational knowledge, skill, and ability (KSA) requirements identified in the Department of Labor O*NET database. The purpose behind establishing this linkage was to place test scores and O*NET KSA level ratings on a common metric. Your academic readiness based on your scores, combined with other components such as interests and work style, can help you explore career paths that may be a fit!

FOR EDUCATORS & COUNSELORS:

Who should be using Career Finder and how can they get started?

Career Finder is available to any student with a College Board account. Students can get started at the College Board score reporting portal or at roadtripnation.com/edu/careerfinder. Once a student consents to link their account with Roadtrip Nation, they will answer a few quick questions about what they like and start exploring careers based on those interests.

The premium version of Career Finder can be purchased by a school, district, or state as an add-on to an administered PSAT and SAT assessment. If you’re interested in purchasing the tool for your students, visit College Board here.

What's the difference between the free and premium tool?

The free Career Finder tool provides students and educators who have a College Board account access to the extensive Roadtrip Nation video archive. The new premium version of the tool includes everything in the free version, and also provides students a personalized experience based on their assessment results, work style preferences, and localized job market data. The premium version also generates skill-building activities and course recommendations based on students' preferences.

If you’re interested in purchasing the tool for your students, visit College Board here.

How can educators use the tool to guide students?

Educators with the free version of the tool can view Roadtrip Nation videos at any time through the College Board administrator portal. For students with premium access, we recommend that educators sit with students as they log in to their accounts and build their plans. Or, encourage your students to share their plan with a caring individual who can help answer any questions they may have. The tool is optimized for mobile and desktop devices.

How long do I have access to Career Finder?

The free version of Career Finder is available to any student with a College Board account, for as long as they have a College Board account. Career Finder Premium users who gain access in 2019 will have access through June 2020.
