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.

There are 29 million jobs in the U.S. that pay an average of $35,000 per year and higher, and don’t require a bachelor’s degree. Yet, we don’t have enough schools to train people to fill them. This is according to a report by a public policy group at Georgetown University.*

The report lists five ways high school graduates can get the technical skills employers want (without investing four to five years earning a bachelor’s degree):

  • Employer-based training
  • Postsecondary certificates
  • Registered apprenticeships
  • Industry-based certifications
  • Associate degrees

The good news is you can find exactly the type of career training the report recommends from Everest, which offers diploma and associate degree programs in health care, criminal justice, business, accounting, computer information science and paralegal fields. Students can usually complete diploma programs in less than a year, and associate degree programs in about two years.

A recent study at Georgetown University has concluded that the survival of the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) means that demand for healthcare workers will spike through 2020. In fact, they predict that the U.S. will require 5.6 million healthcare workers in the next 8 years.

About 80% of those jobs, they say, will require some sort of specialized training or education, like that offered at Everest. Now could be the perfect time to start training for your next career. Everest offers quick, hands-on programs for:

  • Dental Assistant
  • Medical Assistant
  • Pharmacy Technician
