Did you know... 

Recent grads who end up employed in positions that did not require their college degree are 5 times more likely to still be under-employed 5 years later?                                       

This has huge earnings implications!

Preparing for careers and employment takes time and strategy. Learn the latest digital job search skills to navigate the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) resume selection process and increase your interview opportunities three-fold.

Avoid joining the 46% that are underemployed in their first job. Get hired in a job requiring your credential and earn up to 17% more.

This class is also appropriate for community members re-entering the workforce or re-careering. Trainers, Coaches, and Advisors can help you navigate barriers to employment while networking opportunities and college resources can speed your time to hire.
