In-Demand Health Care Careers to be the Focus at Carrington Colleges Group All Campus Open House
PHOENIX, Aug. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — On Sept. 15, Carrington Colleges Group, which is comprised of Carrington CollegeÃ‚® and Carrington CollegeÃ‚® California, will host open house events at 19 campuses for prospective students to explore in-demand careers in health care fields. Although U.S. unemployment numbers continue to hover just above 9 percent, many career experts point to above-average growth projections by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for fields such as dental assisting, massage therapy and veterinary technology, all careers which Carrington programs prepare graduates to pursue.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about emerging professions as well as certificate and degree programs sought after by today’s top employers. Events will feature live demonstrations by faculty, campus tours of hands-on classrooms and interactive labs, a presentation on how to finance higher education and the opportunity to meet with enrollment service representatives.
“Carrington continues to help our students focus on both the personal and professional transformations that are needed to achieve their educational and career goals,” said Robert Paul, president of Carrington Colleges Group. “Our team of dedicated enrollment service representatives, career services advisors and program instructors equip students with the tools and skills necessary to succeed in today’s changing marketplace.”
The career-oriented program offerings from Carrington College and Carrington College California are designed to meet the increasing demand for qualified and trained health care professionals in the U.S. Courses are taught by faculty members with real-world experience that are committed to providing personalized attention to help students achieve their fullest potential.
