INTRODUCING THE INDUSTRY-LEADING CAREER EXPLORATION PLATFORM

CareerViewXR is Be More Colorful's flagship product that sets a new standard for career exploration. Our patent pending solution provides curious minds with immersive field trip and job shadow experiences that are accessible from any internet connected device.

CareerViewXR allows students, teachers, counselors, job coaches, recruiters, and employers to engage in authentic career conversations while eliminating the time, geographic, financial, safety, and privacy constraints of traditional in-person field trips and job shadows.

Don't get us wrong... we think in-person experiences are best, but are often not possible. CareerViewXR enables earlier and more diverse career exploration by bringing the jobsite into the classroom.

Jason Ehlert, President

"We developed multiple CareerViewXR experiences that bring construction sites into the classroom. We can now show students real world job sites without any of the scheduling, transportation, permissions, or safety issues we face when attempting to schedule in person. CareerViewXR saves us time and helps overcome the barriers and misperceptions around what people think about trades careers."
