The products offered by Career TEAM are a perfect match for Ashworth and our students. These new tools will assist Ashworth graduates in their job search as they seek a new career.

Ashworth College (http://www.ashworthcollege.edu) and Career TEAM, LLC (CTL) have announced a partnership that aims to strengthen Ashworth’s focus on putting its students in better position to land jobs. The new association will focus on developing a workforce readiness integrated curriculum, an alumni and employer portal, data collection and access to CTL’s certified coaches.

As part of the agreement, CTL will build in tools to Ashworth’s orientation courses to help students maintain what they’ve learned. These skills will be reinforced for the duration of the student’s program. Ashworth students will also gain access to CTL’s Career EDGE Toolkit, which includes a personalized ePortfolio and professional resume, to help them as they search for employment.

Throughout their learning progress, Ashworth students will learn to build their resumes and have access to mock interview coaching. After students graduate, their resumes and ePortfolios will be put on Ashworth’s Employer platform where employers can search for candidates by keyword and geography. Career TEAM, LLC, will also assist Ashworth in building out its Career Services and Externship management database.

On the partnership, Bill Kakish, chief academic officer at Ashworth College, said, “The products offered by Career TEAM are a perfect match for Ashworth and our students. These new tools will assist Ashworth graduates in their job search as they seek a new career.”
