Dated: January 14, 2009. Angela C. Arrington, Leader, Information Collections Clearance Division, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of Management. rmajette on PRODPC74 with NOTICES Federal Student Aid Type of Review: New Collection. Title: College.gov Career Tools and College Coaches. Frequency: On Occasion. Affected Public: Individuals or household; Businesses or other forprofit. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 400. Burden Hours: 133. 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 College.gov’s objective to provide students with the inspiration and hopes 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.
