The Brookings Institute recently performed a study to find a link between education and unemployment. And they found one. According to their report, cities where more people have a higher education also have more job opportunities.* The reverse was also true; cities with less higher education turned out to have fewer job opportunities.

So what does that mean to you? Education can be the key to a better career and more opportunities. And at Everest, you can pursue a degree in popular fields such as accounting, business, computer information science, criminal justice and paralegal. These are career-focused programs designed to prepare you for jobs in the 21st century economy. Classes are small, instructors are industry professionals and learning is hands on, so you get experience practicing the skills you learn. After graduation, you can get job placement support from Everest’s Career Services professionals.

For more information on associate and bachelor’s degree programs, as well as one-year diploma programs, contact Everest today. Programs and schedules vary by campus.

Heading Back to School

Get Organized

As your school year starts back up again, you’re probably starting to think about how this year will turn out. You’ve got a lot on your plate and you’re trying to juggle school, friends and family—hang in there! Start by setting some goals for yourself: do you want to score higher on the SATs? Make the varsity team? Get better grades than last year? Get a part-time job?

Make a list of your goals and work steadily toward achieving them; you’ll be surprised what you can do when you put your mind to it!

Look Forward

It’s never too early to be thinking about life after school—what will you be doing after you graduate? Think of some of your own personal dreams of success—do you know how to get there?

Whatever your idea of success is, it is widely accepted that higher education will help you in your future. College graduates earn an average of $20,000 more per year than people who only have a high school diploma!*

Create Opportunities

Branch out of your comfort zone this year and create some opportunities for yourself to meet new people, have new experiences, and learn something new about yourself. Get involved in your school to make it more enjoyable and to give yourself something to do besides homework and projects and tests. Join a club that meets at lunchtime or after school; try out for a sports team; volunteer for community service.

Employers are always looking for employees who are well-rounded, who can work hard and also get along with their co-workers. Take the opportunity this school year to meet new people, make new friends and work on your social skills.
