Getting Started
Login to MajorClarity and head to the Work-Based Learning section in the left navigation pane. You'll notice (3) different tabs available for WBL Opportunity Exploration:
  • Local Opportunities (available only to districts with the WBL License): These opportunities are provided by community employers who have partnered with your school or organization to post directly in the platform. If your district is licensed, you can search for, favorite, and apply to these opportunities within MajorClarity.
  • Internships by Indeed (available for all Students): To help you understand what internships are available, we pull opportunities from Indeed that would be relevant for students. For most districts, this list is populated with jobs posted to Indeed with the job type of "Internship" and will first display those opportunities that can be found near the district.
  • WBL Partner Profiles (available only to districts with the WBL License): These are exclusive WBL partners offering opportunities through your school or organization. The list includes current/active partners. If a partner doesn't currently have any live opportunities, be sure to favorite them to keep them on your radar.


Searching for Opportunities
When first navigating to this tab, you'll see all available opportunities in your area. You have the ability to filter and search for specific opportunities based on your interests and needs. Here are the current options:
  • Opportunity: search for the name of an opportunity by typing the name in the box.
  • WBL Partner: search for the name of a current WBL Partner of your district by typing the name in the box.
  • WBL Type: filter all opportunities by a specific WBL Type, such as internship, apprenticeship, full-time job, etc. Use the dropdown to select (1) Type.
  • Location by Zip Code: search for an opportunity in a specific location by typing in the desired zip code. This paramter can be picky, so if you don't find what you need on the first go, try a few different areas near you.
  • Career Cluster: filter all opportunities by a Career Cluster that interests you. Use the dropdown to select (1) Career Cluster.
  • Career Path: filter all opportunities by a Career Path that interests you. Use the dropdown to select (1) Career Path.
