/EIN Presswire/ ORLANDO, FL – Aware of the impact the economy is having on the wallets of out-of-work job seekers, an Orlando career services company specializing in teaching job search skills has introduced a new online teaching program priced less than the cost of a new shirt and tie for an interview.
Navigator Institute, which provides career training services for professional, management and corporate executives, recently unveiled a 30-day interactive online program starting at $89.
The new program which includes a custom resume building feature is expected to appeal to both graduating college students and budget-minded job seekers needing to refresh their job search skills to enhance their employment prospects, says CEO and Founder Matt Durfee.
Durfee believes college graduates – a group significantly affected by the deflated job market – will take advantage of the 30-day program since many lack the basic job search skills needed for embarking on their career paths.
“This is a small financial investment for getting their careers headed in the right direction – less than the cost of a new shirt and tie that they would buy for an interview,” says Durfee.
The 30-day program is the most basic of Navigator’s program offerings.
Those providing Navigator’s career development training are veteran HR executives who have held key leadership positions at such corporate giants as Pepsi Cola, Coca Cola Enterprises, Wyndham Vacation Resorts, Disney, Home Depot, Hallmark Cards, 3M, Heineken USA and Darden Restaurants. Their experience and expertise, which includes interviewing thousands of job candidates over the years, serves as the core of Navigator’s training curriculum which covers a variety of topics, including resume building, interviewing, networking, negotiation and self-marketing.
Over the past several years, Navigator Institute has helped hundreds of individuals across the country secure employment by helping them develop and hone their job search skills and strategies.
With national unemployment hovering around 10 percent, Durfee estimates that there are more than 15 million people out of work and that number includes thousands of college graduates who are still in the starting gate unable to put their educations to use.
“When jobs do become available, the competition for those positions is fierce,” Durfee adds. “College graduates face a tougher road because most not only lack the necessary experience many opportunities require but also the essential job search skills needed to get their foot in the door to compete for those positions.”
