5 Benefits of Career Training Programs
Here are some of the skills employers want from graduates coming from career training programs.
1.Projects and practical, hands-on classes
Career training focuses on teaching the skills necessary to hit the ground running in the job market. Career Placement services in career training programs know what hands-on experience employers want and are able to show vocational students how to sell these skills to employers.
2. Time Management
Career training programs can be an intense commitment of time to complete even a certificate course. Completion of a career management program shows good work ethic, motivation and commitment.
Some career training and vocational training programs offer on-line and on-site classes at different times to suit students who have to work around family commitments. Employers are impressed with vocational training graduates who show that they mastered the flexibility necessary to juggle life and finish a program.
4. Determination & Motivation
Completing a vocational program shows the employer a student's level of determination and motivation to succeed. This is a characteristic that employers will value and look for in new candidates.
5. Buzz words
Because career training programs are shorter than a bachelor's degree, graduates complete their career training program, knowing the most current specific industry “buzz” words and phrases. Graduates of career training programs who use these industry "buzz" words in a resume to demonstrate knowledge, will attract the attention of recruiters and hiring managers who are using these "buzz" words to screen resumes to find the right candidate.
