Laid-Off Employees Using Continuing Education to Remain Competitive

Community Colleges Help Job Hunters Get Back in the Game

Many of you are starting or returning to a grad program in the Fall, but graduate school isn't the only option out there. An increasing amount of working professionals and laid-off employees are turning to community college courses as a way to remain competitive in an overcrowded job market.

Certificate programs, additional coursework in your current field, or classes in a new field can all increase your career options and make you a more appealing candidate. And since community colleges don’t carry the price tag of four-year universities, you don’t have to sink deep into debt in your quest for knowledge.

Would you consider taking community college courses to further your career or get ahead in the job market?
