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.
