Career Cruising Acquires Futures for Kids (F4K) Platform
Career Cruising has announced its purchase of the Futures for Kids (F4K) software platform, positioning the company to integrate corporate and community connections into its industry-leading career exploration software.
Futures for Kids (F4K) is an online career exploration program based in North Carolina that incorporates virtual Career Coaches and local business connections. This complements the wide range of career and education planning tools available within Career Cruising that are used by students across North America. The combined program will not only deliver career assessments, career information, and individual planning portfolios but also connections to real people and companies to help students verify their career interests.
“We’re very excited about working with the F4K team,” said Matt McQuillen, President of Career Cruising. “F4K has spent the last 5 years leveraging corporate participation in a meaningful way, for both students and for long-term workforce development. This acquisition positions Career Cruising to take this model to scale.”
North Carolina educators and business leaders lauded the innovative partnership as offering added value for both students and business communities.
“We are extremely excited,” said Brenda Deese, Director of Student Services for Robeson County Schools. “I’ve seen our students become interested in school after talking with Career Coaches on F4K. The high school course planning available in Career Cruising will add greater relevance to the advice they’re getting from these coaches. It’s a win-win for our students!”
