Chicago, IL (I- Newswire) November 03, 2011 - The intensive 5- day College Success Boot Camp from ADVANCED SYSTEMS helps students overcome the obstacles to college graduation and successful

"From recent government studies we know that over 50% of American full time college students take six years to earn a four year degree," Leanne said. "This causes the cost of higher education to skyrocket, not just in terms of the price tag for college but in costs to self- esteem, career success and more." She explained that students who take two years longer to complete their college degree lose multiple advantages, including: • Two years worth of professional experience • Two years worth of competitive advantage in the workplace • Two years worth of professional income "The net result is terrible," Leanne said, "When you add another $40,000 to the cost of college and take away the $60,000 that student could have earned in those two extra years in school, you're really talking about a $100,000 loss." The College Success Boot Camp from ADVANCED SYSTEMS is based on a proven adult leadership success program as well as extensive research revealing the kinds of skills that are valued by companies who are hiring college graduates today. "A study called Workforce 2020 showed that an astounding 73% of employers seek leadership skills as the number one quality in the employees they hire," Leanne said. "They also want to see problem solving skills, a teamwork mentality, a positive, take charge attitude and a good work ethic. And they want employees that are highly goal driven." The ADVANCED SYSTEMS college success boot camp provides intensive career coaching in how to cultivate these skill sets. "When you have a written action plan and you know how to consistently set and achieve your goals, you will get to where you need to be. You now have control over your future," Leanne said. The students emerge from the program with a solid action plan for completing college and moving successfully into their field of choice. In addition to the student curriculum, the program includes a curriculum for parents of the students as well, so they are prepared to guide the kids back home and model successful behaviors. At the end of the course students and parents graduate from the boot camp together. "After graduation, parents often exclaim happily, 'What have you done to my child?' These kids are transformed. It's very exciting." The College Success Boot Camp can be implemented anywhere across the U.S. where there is a need and a group of at least 10 students. The program can also be adapted to the needs of high school students and other groups that seek career coaching or want training in leadership skills.
