 Bryant & Stratton College Online Hosts Webinar on Creating a
                  Career Change Action Plan

 On October 15 career expert Kim Dority will share strategies for using existing skills and
                             knowledge to change careers

Buffalo, NY, October 03, 2013 – Many studies show that the majority of Americans are
unhappy with their current jobs. The U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor
Statistics reports that 2 million Americans voluntarily leave their jobs each month. To
help current and prospective students as well as other individuals unhappy with their
current careers, Bryant & Stratton College Online announced a new session in its
career information webinar series. The webinar, “Creating a Career Change Action
Plan,” will be held on Tuesday, October 15 from noon to 1 p.m. EDT.

Acclaimed career coach Kim Dority will lead the webinar. Ms. Dority has been a
presenter at many past career webinars for Bryant & Stratton College Online and
has been writing about and teaching courses on career design for more than a
decade.

“One of the best pieces of advice I can give to young – and seasoned – employees is
always have an exit strategy. Transitioning from one career path to another can be
done but it takes some finesse and a lot of planning. At this webinar I’ll share some
ideas on how to take what you have already accomplished in your career and pivot it
into a new path,” said Dority.

The “Creating a Career Change Action Plan,” webinar will provide practical tips and
advice for anyone looking to alter their current career path. Key takeaways for
webinar attendees will include:

           •   How to create a "transition platform," building on existing skills and
               knowledge gained from a degree and previous work experience
           •   How to expand an existing network to create opportunities among
              target employers in a new field
          •   How to start building visibility in a new professional environment
          •   How to use informational interviews to open doors and help create new
              opportunities

“Many students come to Bryant & Stratton College Online in search of a career
change. Earning a degree is the first step in making that transition and developing
critical employability skills for a new career. This webinar and the others in our
career webinar series enhance the knowledge and skills students gain during their
degree program in order to plan a better career path,” said Scott Traylor, Campus
