The Oregon Career Information System (CIS) provides a system of occupational and educational information to help Oregonians learn about the world of work and education. We work with schools, colleges, social agencies, and businesses who provide career guidance and employee development services. They use CIS products with their students, clients, customers, and employees to assist them with the process of career planning or career transition. The information that Oregon CIS develops is comprehensive; for example:
The information is also delivered in a systematic way. This means that each information file is linked to other relevant information to create an integrated system of career information. Professional information analysts collect, analyze, review, and edit every piece of information in CIS each year. They use a wide variety of data sources and generate additional information from their own questionnaires. Oregonians can be certain that each piece of information and the links between the various information files have been thoroughly researched with the concerns of the career planner in mind.
CIS was built to remove barriers so that Oregonians can create accurate and actionable career and education plans. CIS is a time-tested, Oregon-grown system of the highest quality, integrity, and value. Self-supporting for over 40 years, Oregon CIS served as the model for the creation of all state CIDS nationally.
