Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, has recently published an infographic for graduating high school seniors designed to help them explore education and career options.
“Education is the key to a stable and successful career path,” said Jerolyn Robertson, Career Step Vice President of Academics. “It has been my pleasure to see education and training change lives in a significant and meaningful way. Having the tools to succeed not only advances the individual forward to a rewarding and sustainable career, but it also lifts their family and the greater community as well.”
The new infographic provides a quick reference for those exploring their post-high school options. It provides data on the growing number of hurdles to financial stability for those who go straight to work, especially compared to 40 years ago. The infographic also outlines some of the pros and cons of a variety of education options, specifically four-year degrees, two-year degrees and career-focused certificate programs.
The infographic highlights some key advantages of certificate programs and career-focused education. One advantage is reduced tuition costs; this is largely due to the shorter nature of career-specific training programs. Another advantage of having to invest a shorter amount of time into education is individuals can begin earning money faster—sometimes in as little as three months.
“For most graduating seniors, this is the first time in their lives that they really have a choice as to what comes next for them regarding their career,” said Ben Hartman, Career Step Vice President of Enrollments. “Knowing what to do can be a difficult and overwhelming decision—but our new infographic can help graduates evaluate a number of available options. It is our privilege to help people explore some of those options and to help them succeed.”
Career Step has been training students in healthcare, technology and administrative careers for over 20 years. All of the school’s career-focused programs are offered entirely online, providing students freedom and flexibility to complete the training on their schedule and at their own pace. This online training is an ideal fit for many students who may not be able or interested in pursuing higher education through more traditional options.
