Lincoln Educational Services Receives Military Friendly Schools Designation For Fifth Consecutive Year
Career College Central summary:
Lincoln Educational Services Corporation, a national leader in specialized technical training and a driving force in helping students turn their passion into professional success, has been named to the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools by Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The original Lincoln campus – Lincoln Technical Institute of Newark, NJ – was established in 1946 to assist returning World War II veterans, and the proprietary network of schools is proud to carry on that tradition of service today.
Lincoln has received the Military Friendly Schools designation every year since Victory Media launched the initiative in 2009. U.S. veterans are served by each of Lincoln's 38 campuses around the nation. While students train for professional skills that help launch civilian careers, they also work closely with Lincoln faculty to build academic skills and Career Services teams who help them network with Lincoln's broad range of employer partners. Lincoln helps veterans translate their military experience into tangible professional skills that hiring managers are looking for; each campus has detailed knowledge of which local employer partners are best suited for students rejoining the civilian workforce.
The Military Friendly Schools media and website, www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The schools selected have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served. Now in its fifth year, the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding.
Lincoln campuses maintain contacts with Veterans services and programs around the country, and frequently host career fairs, job training seminars, and other workshops dedicated specifically to the needs of returning servicemen and women. In addition, Lincoln continues to seek out and establish new partnerships and programs around the country to bridge the skills gap between the abilities of the workforce and the needs of employers.
