Job seekers must differentiate themselves by pursuing a skill and using education as a way to advance within their chosen career path.

The Employment Guide, a division of Dominion Enterprises, will participate in the 2013 APSCU (Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities) Annual Convention & Expo. The premier event for private-sector higher education is scheduled for June 5-7 in Orlando, FL.

The Employment Guide’s participation in the APSCU Annual Convention & Expo is reflective of an ongoing commitment to expanding America’s skilled workforce.

“Job seekers must differentiate themselves by pursuing a skill and using education as a way to advance within their chosen career path,” said Tom Baron, who leads the Employment Guide’s career education department. “In addition to employment listings, we place career education opportunities in front of people who may want a better job but lack the skills and training to make that transition right now. Our site is a place where people come to learn how to improve their skill set and become more appealing to employers.”
