Explore Career Opportunities

When you indicate that you want to explore advancement or career change opportunities (from either the getting started screens or the Career Explorer home page), Dayforce displays a selection of job assignments based on the information in your career profile.

These opportunities represent possible job assignments in the organization, but they may or may not be associated with current job postings. The suggestions are intended to help you build the skills required for certain positions so that you're prepared to apply for them when they’re available.

The Career Explorer feature analyzes the required skills for each job opportunity, and tells you which skills you already have, which skills you require, and which skills you'll need to increase your proficiency for (if proficiency information is available). You can also review community insights for the opportunity, including the names of potential hiring managers and other employees in the role, and the average tenure for employees in the role. Depending on configuration, you might also see pay grade and salary range information.

Each opportunity is shown individually, and you can swipe through the suggestions to identify which ones you like and which ones you dislike. After viewing an opportunity, it's saved to your Previously viewed opportunities list, which you can access at any time from the Career Explorer home page. See Your Previously Viewed Opportunities.

To explore career opportunities:

  1. Go to Career Explorer.
  2. Click an option to indicate the type of opportunities you'd like to explore:
    • Advancement opportunities: Explore opportunities in the same part of the organization as your current role. These recommendations are based on the career paths of other employees in the same role.
    • Career change opportunities: Explore opportunities in a different part of the organization than your current role. These recommendations are based on your skills and aren’t restricted to a particular department or the career paths of other employees in the same role.
  3. From the displayed opportunity card, take the following actions, as needed:
