    Abstract: The purpose for including the Career Tool and I'm Going 
Guide features is to provide students with real world, relatable 
examples of current college students who were able to overcome 
obstacles in order to reach a postsecondary education. This feature 
builds on's objective to provide students with the 
inspiration and hope to see that a college education is possible for 
everyone (especially targeting underrepresented populations). In the 
I'm Going Guide feature, students can select current college students 
to view their profiles, see why and how they went to college,
and read the college student's advice for high school students. Each 
student's profile would include their first name, photo, major and 
brief description about the student, such as where they are studying, 
and tips for other students. For the Career Tool feature, the site 
would show 24 different college grads at a time, but the goal would be 
to have about 75 that we could ``shuffle'' on the tool's display. Each 
college grad's profile would provide their first name, major, career 
field, and advice for students interested in their field of study. This 
information clearance will enable the Department to college grad 
profiles for including in the Career Tool and I'm Going Guide.
