MyMnCareers was produced by Southwest Minnesota Adult Basic Education and the former iSeek Solutions organization with funding from the Otto Bremer Foundation. Staff from
Ronald M. Hubbs Center for Lifelong Learning helped write and produce this website.

Unique Features of This Site
- MyMnCareers has three distinct levels of content: beginner ("I am an English Language Learner"), intermediate ("I am Finishing High School or My GED"), and advanced ("I am Done with High School/GED and Want to Advance My Career").

Students or customers can re-visit MyMnCareers and use another level as they progress in their careers or education. More about the audience for this site is on MyMnCareers Audience.
