COVID-19 has taken a toll on all of us. It hit hard and fast, upending daily life in ways we’ve only read about in books and seen in movies. The economic impact alone has resulted in countless furloughs, layoffs, and pay cuts. In fact, 38.6 million people have filed for unemployment since March. That’s a big number.
And while layoffs are (mostly) out of our control, there’s a bright side: the healthcare industry needs skilled workers—and with the right training, you could find yourself starting a new, exciting career with the potential for incredible growth.
If you’re looking to improve your marketability, learn new skills, or just get your foot in the door, CareerStep’s new Accelerated Training Programs are a great way to get fully trained and back to work in as little as 1 to 3 months.
