Why reward graduation with technology that will be outdated in six months or an expensive pen destined for a drawer? Career Lion’s ACCELERATOR program helps recent graduates to take the next step and gives them a lasting career edge.
If you are a recent or soon-to-be graduate, an impressive resume is the next most important document after your degree. In a market that is saturated due to downsizing, employers have access to a wide pool of talent and opportunities for graduates have been reduced. More candidates are now competing for fewer jobs with lower compensation.
A head start and a sustainable advantage
Career Lion’s ACCELERATOR program helps entry level job seekers to launch their careers and establish effective personal branding, value tracking and job transition techniques that will continue to pay dividends for many years and jobs to come.
Most graduates come to us with no resume or ones that are very student-oriented. They unknowingly position themselves as untried risky hires who are still learning and looking to be granted an opportunity.
