Posts Tagged ‘Career Training

Career training that is industry-specific means learning skills that are directly related to what the industry is looking for today. For instance, Everest’s medical assistant program is based on the skills currently in demand in the medical world. Students receive hands-on career training and are encouraged to develop the specific skills employers are looking for.

This is as critical to Everest as it is to the students – our job doesn’t end at graduation. We are committed to placing our students in the fields they have trained for. We assist our graduates not only with finding the right job to apply for, but ensuring they have the skills they need — including how to interview and prepare a resume — to get the job they’ve worked so hard to prepare for.

CHICAGO (Dec. 6, 2010) – Everest College is expanding in the Chicago area with the addition of a campus in southwest suburban Bedford Park. The new school, designed to help meet the growing demand for hands-on, career-focused education, is the seventh Everest campus in the Chicago metropolitan area.

“Based on the growing enrollment at our other local schools, it’s apparent the Chicago market for career training is underserved, especially in the face of the high unemployment rate and funding cutbacks at public post-secondary institutions,” said Sean Quinn, regional vice president of operations for Everest College. “We look forward to bringing more educational opportunities to Chicago and suburban residents who seek new skills and careers to better compete in this tough job market.”

The 40,814-square-foot campus facility in Bedford Park will be located less than two miles south of Midway Airport at 7414 S. Cicero Ave., across from the Ford City Mall. The campus opens for visitors Dec. 6, and classes officially begin Jan. 26 with a projected enrollment of 1,000 students.

Everest College – Bedford Park will offer a variety of programs for full-time and part-time students, including dental assistant, medical assistant, and medical billing and coding.

Classes are conducted during the day, evenings, and on weekends to make it convenient for students who are currently employed or have other needs for a flexible schedule, according to Quinn. The campus is located near public transportation corridors for easy accessibility.

The new school also creates jobs, already bringing approximately 45 faculty and other staff to the area.

Everest College’s six other Chicago-area campuses are located in Burr Ridge, Chicago, Merrionette Park, North Aurora, Skokie and Merrillville, Ind.

SANTA ANA, Calif. (November 30, 2009) – Now mobile visitors to Everest’s website can access campus and course information or begin the enrollment process to become a student from virtually any web-enabled cell phone, smart phone or other mobile Internet device.

There’s even a “Call Us Now,” option that integrates the mobile browser with the user’s phone’s dialer, allowing for easy, safe dialing.

“We noticed that over the past 12 months, mobile traffic has been the fastest growing segment of our web properties,” said Teresa M. O’Sullivan, Vice President of Marketing. “People want information right at their fingertips. We felt it was important to provide an excellent mobile browsing experience for these users.”

When researching mobile website options, Everest developers felt it was important to optimize for more than just the smart phone device.

“It’s all about the engaging our mobile visitors and creating a positive mobile user experience,” said O’Sullivan.
