To understand what you want to do, you first have to know where you want to go!


The State of New Jersey has created the New Jersey Career Assistance Navigator (NJCAN) to help New Jersey residents on their journey of career exploration.

  • How to keep a job
  • Self-employment

NJCAN is designed to support lifelong career exploration, and career planning and decision-making through easy to use, straightforward search and sorting utilities, and an online portfolio for saving information from all system components.
