This disclosure describes a career portal that provides career and job related information to a user based on insights into the learning style, aptitude, and career goals of the user. A recommendation engine includes modules for learning style determination and aptitude determination that utilize user-permitted data, e.g., from the user’s online activity and other data sources, to provide individualized course and career recommendations. A dominant learning style for the user is determined and is utilized together with their career goals to suggest coursework for the user to upgrade their skills. The recommendation engine also suggests suitable job opportunities. The described techniques can be implemented in a career portal that can offer a personal career passport that includes up to date information of a user’s learning style, skills, completed coursework, and career. Alternatively, or in addition, the described techniques can be incorporated into workspace productivity software and/or job search applications.
