How do I get onto Career Cruising?  
If this is your first time accessing the site:
1. www.careercruising.com
2. Log in using the following info for username & password:
Username: FH-student ID number (Example: FH-123456)  The FH must be capitalized and students must utilize the dash between the FH and student ID number for this to work.
Password: 8 digit birthdate (Example: If your birthdate is Nov. 2, 1998, you would enter 11021998)
3. Once you are connected, you will be prompted to change your password & input basic contact information.  We highly recommend students input their password to match the same password they use to check grades via Infinite Campus.  For students this is First Initial of First Name, First Initial of Last Name, and 6 digit birthdate (Example John Doe who was born November 2, 1998 would enter jd110298 for his password.)

If you have accessed Career Cruising before, you would visit the site above & just input your username & password.
