Career Counselor

Navy Career Tools are web-based applications designed to support and enhance Sailor career management, retention and professional development. The CCC Toolbox Information Sheet (updated 27 JAN 2015, hyperlink on the right) identifies the online applications that Career Counselors must use to support Sailors, Sailor careers, and command career information programs. If you do not routinely use ALL of the applications listed below, both you and your Sailors will miss the many opportunities and advantages provided. User aids, including the "5 Tips for CCCs" series, will help you fully engage all your tools.
