Who’s Who of Career Step Students: High School Seniors
We have to admit we have some of the best students around. Everyone has a unique story, but Career Step happens to be the perfect fit for a diverse group of students who enroll with us. In an effort to help you increase your referrals, we’re highlighting some of the different backgrounds of our students and why Career Step might be the perfect choice for someone you know in a similar situation.
Today we’re going to talk about high school seniors. Yes, that’s right—high school students or recent graduates who are 18 can take Career Step’s programs! Below are a few highlights on what makes Career Step the right choice for them and what you can do to help us spread the word.
Upon graduation from Career Step, high school students have the opportunity to enter the workforce right away, and make good money! While their friends are stuck in dead end jobs, Career Step grads will have learned the skills needed to get a job in one of many in-demand fields. What’s even better, some of those jobs start out at $40,000 or more.
Earn While You Learn
Unfortunately, not every high school senior gets a scholarship or has the funds required to go to the university of their choice. Career Step’s programs provide these students with an opportunity to get trained in a high demand job that will help them pay for college if that’s the path they’re interested in pursuing.
Benefits of an Online Certificate Program
Career Step’s online certificate programs are also a great alternative for those who maybe aren’t interested in earning a 2 or 4 year degree. With our programs, students can work at the pace that is right for them—not the rest of the class. Students will have access to instructors who can provide them with individualized help when needed throughout the course. And because all of the training is completely online, a summer vacation, family reunion, or other travel doesn’t mean their education has to be put on hold—they can take Career Step’s program with them no matter where they go as long as there’s an internet connection! This is all available for a mere fraction of the cost of a traditional degree.
How to Spread the Word
Letting your friends and family know about this great opportunity for high school students is easy. All you have to do is tell them about your own experience and why you think it might be a good fit for them. If you have a high school student you can also ask them to tell their friends about Career Step or talk to the high school guidance counselor to see if you can post one of your referral fliers in the school or leave some of our high school brochures in their office. You might also ask about upcoming career fairs or other events you might want to attend to talk about Career Step. (Be sure to write your Referrer ID on the appropriate line on the flier and brochure so you still get credit for any enrollments.)
These are just a few of the reasons we think Career Step makes a great choice for high school seniors, but we’d love to hear what you think too! Are there other ways we can let high school students know about Career Step? We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas in the comments section below!
