This series is designed to help you increase your referrals by understanding the different needs of Career Step’s students and why your friends and family might choose to go back to school with us. This month we’re focusing on why a certificate program from Career Step might be the perfect fit for college students.
I know what you’re thinking. Why would someone already going to school to get a degree want to also enroll in a certificate program? The simple answer is time and money.
Earn While You Learn
Most college students start school with the goal of finishing in 2 or 4 years, depending on the degree. However, the average time to complete an associate degree is actually over 3 years and a bachelor degree is 4.5 years. A certificate program from Career Step on the other hand can be completed in as little as 3 months. This means they are able to get into the workforce much sooner.
With the rising cost of a degree, having a job is a necessity for many college students. While a few are lucky enough to get a scholarship or have parents that are able to afford their tuition, most college students have to support themselves. Our career-focused programs are designed to get students in, out, and working as soon as possible. This means they can earn a decent living while still pursuing their college degree.
