As they sit before their computers in 50 states, students of Career Step’s online vocational courses commune in real time with professionals in the health-care, administrative, and technological fields. As pupils work toward their final exams over the course of 3- to 12-month programs, student-support advisers offer personal consultations, and technical-support advisers help sort out any computer issues that might interfere with learning. After they earn their touchscreen mortarboards, graduates gain the abundant ears of a team of graduate-support advisers, who help students prepare a resumé, develop their interview technique, and optimize their job search. The flexible pacing means that students don’t have to sacrifice attention to their current career, and ongoing support streamlines the transition to a new one.
