With IKRON, I Can Succeed! 

Career Quest, a division of IKRON, provides career services to middle and high school youth.  Services include: career counseling and exploration, education and career planning, assessment, and college and job matching. Our goal is to help young adults find their professional path through identifying aptitudes/interests, and providing professional assistance in preparing and applying for college and/or a future career.  If you would like to learn more about our programs and how your child can benefit from our career counseling services, contact Melissa Harmeling at (513)621-1117 or via e-mail at mharmeling@ikron.org

In our efforts of creating a most beneficial experience for students, we have expanded our collaboration to high school counselors in the Cincinnati area and local Universities. Each year Career Quest honors the top three high school counselors in the tri-state region. The awards are endorsed and sponsored in part by Cincinnati State, the University of Cincinnati, and  Xavier University.  The selection team consists of representatives from the local colleges/universities, and counselors from Cincinnati Public Schools, Indian Hill High School, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy,  Kings High School, etc.

If you would like to nominate a school counselor for the Career Quest School Counselor Recognition Awards, please complete an award nomination form or contact us for assistance! We would love to hear from you!
