Spring Break: A Critical Time to Review Education and Career Goals

Potential Students Attracted to Careers in Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Massage Therapy, Spa/Wellness and/or Alternative Medicine Can Use Off-Time to Investigate Fields of Interest

Spring break for many high school seniors is a time to kick back and enjoy friends, travel and fun, but there's more to explore, say editors at HolisticJunction.com and SpaBeautySchools.com, two sites dedicated to holistic and massage/beauty/spa/wellness-related educational resources. During off-time, students-both traditional and nontraditional adult learners-should think about their future education, career goals, success options, and deadlines.

Whether an individual is a high school senior or a mid-career professional, the moment for debating what one wants to do is always timely, explains Gina LaGuardia, editor-in-chief of The CollegeBound Network, which owns HolisticJunction.com and SpaBeautySchools.com, among numerous other Web sites. "Spring break is an opportune period to review prospective schools and universities that can give candidates the competitive edge in marketing to future employers."

Whether one chooses to become an entrepreneur in natural health care, or would like to work in innovative fields of massage therapy, spa/wellness, beauty, or other unique healing arts trades, now is prime time to plan for the future, LaGuardia adds, since summer and fall enrollment periods for such programs are at their peak.

Today, many complementary medicine and natural healing schools offer similar enrollment options, financial aid programs, and in-depth curriculums as traditional colleges and other career training schools. And, according to The CollegeBound Network's user data, massage therapy and related programs are attracting a flourishing number of students.

Use Spring break off-time to act upon on educational pursuits and goals put on the backburner-even if that means getting out there into one's field of interest. "We encourage students to take the time to visit a local chiropractor and shadow a doctor to get a feel for the practice," says Mike Lynch, director of admissions at New York Chiropractic College (New York, NY). "The bottom line is to make sure you've done enough research to feel confident that you're going into the right career."

Similar to other alternative medicine colleges and universities, New York Chiropractic College offers an open house twice per year. And, while healing arts schools vary in enrollment processes, financial aid programs, and campus tours, spring breakers can take a time to explore NYCC and other prospective schools online via virtual tours and at information sites such as HolisticJunction.com and SpaBeautySchools.com.

More than 1.5 million surfers utilize The CollegeBound Network's resource sites each month, which include SpaBeautySchools.com , CollegeSurfing.com, HolisticJunction.com, TopCareerSchools.com, and CollegeBound.net.

Since 1987, The CollegeBound Network (CBN) has worked with America's leading colleges, universities, and career schools in connecting learners with educational opportunities. CBN specializes in recruitment lead generation solutions for 800+ educational institutions and 2,100 campuses, using its content-rich portals.
