...with our career skills courses. What you have to sell an employer or a client isn't the fact you've worked for them already, but that you can solve their problems. You are always on the market, always in competition. And you are always a cost they'd like to cut. How are you going to work in a team and still stand out? We'll show you how. Your only job security today is your arsenal of job skills. Our courses help you develop job skills you need.
Invest in you, for high returns. How do you stand out from the competition in getting promoted, being retained, or moving to a better job? Answer: only through the skills that move you beyond basic job performance.
How do you gain leverage with your employer, so you have freedoms and privileges your coworkers don't? Answer: only through the skills that move you beyond basic job performance.
If you look through the course offerings, you'll notice these are the skills that lead to promotion but aren't usually part of any college cirricula or job training program.
For example, consider how many truly awful presentations you have sat through, all the while wishing you were out getting a root canal instead. Our Presentations course teaches you how to present in a way that makes people glad they got to listen to you speak.
Or consider our problem-solving course. Why do bosses reward certain employees and not others? Is it because they work so hard? No, because bosses expect everyone to work hard; fail to do that and you're likely to be shown the door. What bosses really need is to have their problems solved. But few people have a dependable methodology for quickly and effectively solving problems. Our problem-solving course teaches you that methodology.
Our other courses similarly provide you with a career edge your coworkers are unlikely to have. But if another coworker does have that edge, why would you want to be at a disadvantage to that person when it comes down to the two of you for a promotion, raise, or layoff decision?
Employers are looking for employees whose skill repertoire goes beyond the traditional technical skills. It's an interesting dynamic. In the USA, record numbers of people do not have jobs and cannot find work in the area for which they have trained and become qualified. Yet employers have openings that go unfilled for months.
The problem isn't that the employers can't find people who meet the basic qualifications of the job. It's that they can't find people who have that something extra. You need additional skills, in the areas we offer courses for. If you're presently working, that's great. You can apply what you learn on the job and have a track record you can talk about in the event you seek a job in the future or a promotion soon. If you're not working, you will still have the skills and you will be able to discuss them convincingly, thus giving you an edge in the skill wars job market.
