A new pathway to career is opening.
And it pays to be connected on social media.
For more and more of your students, it’s making sense to consider alternate paths to career success. Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs are leading the way, by providing students with modern employability skills that easily translate into college and career readiness.
Whether you’ve integrated a CTE curriculum into your existing offerings, or you’re considering it – Social Assurity’s courseware is especially relevant in today’s world.
LinkedIn for Students, for example, is essential – because so much direct job recruitment is happening within its ecosystem, and nowhere else. Getting your students on LinkedIn also instantly solves the perennial problem of measuring alumni success, and maintaining active alumni relations.
Whatever path your CTE students take after you send them into the world — skilled careers, community college, higher education opportunities — their visible and socially-connected successes will boost your school’s reputation, and your ability to command budgets.
$1.1B federal dollars now available for CTE
CTE programs are supported by the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act, which provides approximately $1.1 billion in state grants annually to serve more than 14 million students nationwide.
LinkedIn is the most important social media platform for students looking to make a strong case for their college admission, internships, and career success. This LinkedIn eCourse, the first of its kind and designed especially for students who have no work experience, will help you acquire LinkedIn proficiency for recruiting, personal branding and affinity-group/influencer networking.
