About Missouri Connections

Missouri Connections is a comprehensive, online, career development and planning program that is provided free of charge to all Missouri citizens. Funded by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, this program supports the career development efforts of schools, community organizations, and adult job seeker programs. Missouri Connections helps individuals learn about their talents, skills, and interests and makes the connection between planning for continued education and the work world.


Missouri Connections is produced by intoCareers, an outreach center at the University of Oregon College of Education. First introduced in Oregon in 1971, the Career Information System, CIS, is used by many states around the country as their official statewide career information delivery system. This non-profit consortium of states that use CIS, known as the CIS Network, serves millions of people annually.


Missouri Connections promotes lifelong learning and includes assessment, career and college planning and financial aid resources. It is appropriate for middle schools, high schools, post-secondary institutions, as well as for agencies serving adult populations, such as employment offices, vocational rehabilitation programs and correctional facilities.
