In an effort to better prepare college students for emerging career fields, the Coalition for Education Success recently held a summit on the role of higher education in the 21st Century at the Ecotech Institute in Denver, Colorado.

Avy Stein, co-chairman of the coalition said that the career colleges should help ensure that students add degrees to their resumes that are in line with ongoing job trends.

At a time when the country is in dire need of sustainable job opportunities for trained workers, career colleges continue to work hard to make sure events like the Summit address student and employer needs, Stein added.”Our sector’s message is clear: career colleges help millions of students and provide essential workforce training. We will continue to develop best practices as we move forward to meet the economy’s demand for better educated workers.”

Panel discussions at the summit included a summary of job training programs that help prepare graduates in emerging technologies and a look at the supply and demand in America’s workforce.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, professionals with an advanced degree on their resume have the potential to earn $1,000 more per week than those with some or no college education.
