Watson Career Coach has been recognized for the “Best Advance in Career Management or Planning Technology.”

A cognitive talent management solution


IBM® Watson™ Career Coach is a virtual assistant that aligns your business goals with your employees’ career goals. Through data, interactions and updates, Watson Career Coach learns about an employee’s preferences and interests, and makes recommendations for existing job opportunities and how to navigate future career moves.
IBM also offers IBM Watson Career Coach Express, which does not require job/skills dictionary or historical employee data, for organizations that would like to make an immediate impact on internal mobility. Through the same AI-powered, virtual, natural language chatbot, the express version makes next internal job recommendations based on questions and answers with employees and by scanning an uploaded resume for information.
