Hello, and welcome back to our blog. Last time we talked about traditional universities and career training programs, and some of the benefits you can see from choosing a trade school over a college. Last time we covered three topics: unique learning experiences that are custom built for your learning style and success; small class sizes that allow for more individualized instruction, and significantly lower costs compared to traditional universities. This time we’ll cover several more reasons why you should attend a career training program whether you’ve already graduated and can’t find a job; have yet to apply to any kind of higher education program, or are currently at a college but don’t have the money to finish.

Career-Focused Training

Possibly one of the most criticized things about traditional universities is that they aren’t career focused. When you earn a bachelor’s degree, you’re typically not gaining all of the knowledge and credentials that you need to enter into your career of choice. Instead, you’re gaining a broad understanding of a field. However, when you enroll in a trade school program, your education will be entirely focused on your career choice. At Computer Tutor, we have classes and degrees those wanting to become medical clerks, accounting clerks, administrative assistants, office clerks, sterile processing technicians, medical office administrations, and veterinary assistants. Additionally, we have a wide variety of short courses focused on programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access.

Hands-on Experience

When it comes time to apply for jobs, employers like to see that you have experience working in that position, even if it’s as an unpaid intern or it was through hands-on work that you did in a course. During a four-year bachelor’s degree program, you may not spend very much or any time working hands-on in a specific career. Not only will you see more individualized instruction in a career training program, but it will be more hands-on.

Shorter Courses

A lot of time and money is wasted at traditional universities on formalities and grading that could be better applied to students’ learning. Due to semesters being so long, professors may not feel the need to hurry things along, but by the time the end of the semester rolls along, are rushing to catch up on work. This is not ideal, and leaves students wondering why finals week can be so stressful. In trade programs, students are enrolled in shorter courses that get right down to business, avoiding unnecessary formalities. Instructors are also committed to helping you succeed in your career choice as well, not just in achieving a good grade.  

Career Services

Many universities will provide some assistance to graduates in the form of online job placement sites or advising, however, often times, graduates will lose access to these resources before finding a job. However, career training programs are usually not successful if they don’t have proof of graduates scoring careers soon after. At Computer Tutor Business and Technical Institute, our professional staff of career advisors know that it’s not just about your education, it’s about what you do with it after you graduate that makes a difference in your long-term success.
