During this holiday season you can show your thanks by paying it forward and sharing your story with friends and family. We’ve heard from so many of our students how grateful they are for their Career Step course and the big difference it has made in their life. (Check out our testimonials page to hear some of their stories!)
If you too have had a similar experience, the holidays are the perfect time to share your story with friends and loved ones. What better gift can you give someone than the gift of education and the ability to change their circumstances (and make a little bit of money for yourself)?
With all the holiday parties and family gatherings this time of year, it is even easier to share your story. When someone asks what you do you simply tell them about the great job you landed after graduating from Career Step. What if you haven’t graduated yet? That’s even easier! You simply tell them that you are currently going back to school with Career Step and are so excited to start your new career upon graduation.
And of course, we want to make sure you get credit for anyone you refer to Career Step. We recommend printing out some business cards with Career Step’s information along with your name and referrer ID so it is easy for them to contact us while giving you credit. There are many sites online that have free or low cost business cards available. Or you can print out your own at home using our handy template. You can buy business card paper at most office supply stores or just print them out on cardstock and trim to the appropriate size.
If you’ve forgotten your referral information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can look it up for you.
