While many people strive toward personal growth by enrolling in a higher education, some individuals are concerned about whether or not they will be able to find a full-time job upon graduation.
However, Ashworth College, an online university with headquarters in Georgia, is doing something about it. The virtual school announced that students who are graduating in 2011 will have the opportunity to participate in a career search workshop.
Some of the professionals working with the program include representatives from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC), Randstad US and RE: FOCUS ON CAREERS. School officials said it was important to offer such an exercise, as the way people find jobs continually changes.
"Between the current economy and the Internet, the way people find jobs today has dramatically changed and now that our students have completed their education, we want to help them succeed by giving them as many tools as we can," said Leslie Gargiulo, the school's vice president of education. "We are fortunate to partner with experts from the AJC, Randstad and RE: FOCUS."
