Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and professional training, will be exhibiting at the 2016 Learning Resources Network (LERN) Annual Conference being held in Baltimore, MD, November 16 through 19.
“We are excited to attend the LERN conference and meet face-to-face with our existing partners and build relationships with colleges and universities in attendance,” said Tyson Mehlhoff, Career Step Academic Partner Regional Account Executive. “We work closely with our partners throughout the year, but meeting in person allows us to learn more about their challenges and work together to find solutions and offer better support.”
With more than 20 years of experience in training career-ready professionals, Career Step partnerships offer dedicated account management, full student and graduate support, and marketing help and resources to make these programs successful at any institution. Career Step’s Academic Partnership program allows students to receive online, fully supported, career-focused training offered through local institutions without taxing the school’s already burdened personnel and funding resources.
“Universities are facing spending cuts, and that means making tough decisions on what programs they can continue to offer their communities,” said Ryan Ewer, Vice President of Academic Partnerships. “Our focus is to help these universities do more with less. Career Step partners are seeing an increase in revenue, lower administrative burdens and increased enrollments. These are exciting results that can be replicated for many other institutions.”
Career Step partners with over 150 universities and colleges around the nation, has trained more than 100,000 students and has a current job placement rate of 84 percent for all programs. It’s employer-trusted, instructor-supported career training helps organizations increase revenue while decreasing administration overhead and burden. More information about partnering with Career Step will be available in the Career Step booth at the 2016 LERN Conference.
