JustColleges has announced the launch of a new channel that highlights advantages of career colleges, helps individuals choose a career education program, and most importantly, positions them for success in the real world.
Invest in your future; get an edge through education.
Have you ever wondered why you got passed over for that promotion you know you deserved? Do you feel trapped in a dead-end job? Do you dream about going to college, but hesitate to commit to a four-year school? Whether you are graduating from high school or thinking about starting school later in life, perhaps you've overlooked a great educational option: attending a career school.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than half of the 30 occupations with the largest employment growth require less than a four year degree. This is where career colleges come in, with a focus on the needs of both students and employers. Career colleges offer diploma, certificate and even degree programs that can be completed in a few months instead of several years, thus enabling you to quickly start working in your chosen field. Many schools, from accounting colleges to culinary schools, offer online courses to meet the needs of working adults and parents.
Career colleges adapt to market needs more quickly than traditional institutions and maintain much higher graduation rates than community colleges. While traditional colleges and universities help students gain a broad background in liberal arts, explore intellectual interests or perform research, career colleges serve individuals who are committed to a specific occupational goal and seek the most direct route to reaching it. Going to an accounting college guarantees an education in accounting. Taking fashion design courses prepares you to be a fashion designer. Someone fresh out of high school who chooses a technical education might have a career as an interior designer or veterinary technician and be earning great money before their four-year counterparts finish their freshman years!
Due to the nature of the courses offered, the mode of teaching at a career school is usually all practical. Some theory and bookwork may be involved, but every piece of the curriculum is geared toward the career as the end goal.
Think of it this way: when someone wants to become an interior designer, they learn how by designing houses. Veterinary technicians learn to provide animal care by practicing on real animals. Massage therapy students don't take literature and history. They take massage therapy courses.
Career colleges provide professional and technical educational programs in over 200 occupational fields. You could attend culinary school, an accounting college, or even take fashion design courses. Other possibilities include automotive technology, business administration, criminal justice, information technology, interior design, legal administration, medical billing and coding, network administration, nursing, photography and video game design.
Given the vast number of colleges across the US that offer career training, selecting the right school and program can be a daunting task. The JustColleges career channel provides information on both careers and colleges, with articles describing everything from what an interior designer does to how one becomes a veterinary technician. Search options allow students to choose by degree level, subject, program, and location.
Allied with reputed colleges like The Art Institutes, Hi-Tech Institute, Strayer University and Argosy University, the career education channel becomes a one-stop shop. Prospective students may also request more information directly from each school at JustColleges.
Whether a student desires online classes or campus-based programs, fashion design courses or a great culinary school, JustColleges helps people find the right learning institutions to achieve their career goals.
