Bellus Academy is partnering with the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) to raise awareness of the “Shortage of Skills” in America campaign. The initiative launched in December 2015 and raises awareness of many careers that don’t require a four-year degree but offer robust job demand and the opportunity to find work in an individual’s area of study.
Throughout 2016, the campaign will share data on careers that present strong market demand, ranging from truck drivers and automotive service technicians to home health care workers and hairstylists.
Lynelle Lynch, owner and president of Bellus Academy (recently ranked the number one beauty and wellness academy in North America by Intercoiffure), said the U.S. Department of Labor monthly job reports continue to support the practicality of career education and APSCU’s efforts to raise awareness of rewarding careers that don’t require a four-year degree.
“While last month’s jobs report revealed that 292,000 jobs were created in December, it’s important to note that 90% of the jobs being created are in the service sector – an area where career education has always dominated,” she said.
“The teachers were amazing! Without Bellus, I wouldn’t have the rewarding life I have today. School was something I looked forward to every single day. I can’t believe I have a job that I love going to every day.”
“For the past year I have been working on super-yachts in Spain as a massage therapist for billionaires and have loved every second of it! I don’t know what I would’ve done without Bellus’ training and expertise.”
“I love how hands-on the nail program is at Bellus. I am a visual and hands-on learner and I appreciated the time and focus on my advancement throughout the program. I would definitely recommend Bellus Academy to anyone interested in beauty and wellness education, especially the nail program!”
“The program and educators in Make-up Artistry are exceptional. The curriculum was so well designed that each day I couldn’t wait to get to school and begin the next step in learning high-end makeup. I feel very comfortable after taking this class to apply for a job anywhere in makeup, including a Hollywood studio, theater, photography or in a high-end salon and spa.”
“As a cosmo crossover, the Barbering Program was not only an excellent way to brush up on the basics, but also the best way to take my career to the next level. The staff was so helpful in every aspect and I highly recommend the program.”
