Reach out in many ways

1

Print version

The magazine is a knockout. Printed in full color with great photos and compelling charts and graphics, it draws new readers to your school. The magazine is informative rather than “salesy” and its direct mail approach is proven and cost-effective. Learn more

2

Online edition

The online version of the physical CareerFocus magazine. With an effective web presence, you can make your college ubiquitous and easy to find. This isn’t just a “page-flipper” digital version of your existing magazine layout. We redesign it specifically for the web. Learn more

3

Social media

Targeted ads on Facebook and Instagram lead your community members to you. In addition, each of your articles has its own url, perfect for sharing on all social media channels so that you can keep people in the loop and up to speed with what you’re doing. Learn more

 

 

Your CareerFocus magazine

This is your way to reach new readers. It is informative, full-color and attractively designed.

And we’ll help you target the most productive regions in your service area. Included with our service is our Marketing Zone suite of demographics analysis tools. When you first start with the Consortium, we’ll provide you with a breakdown of the major variables within your student demographic, helping you determine which segments of your prospective student population should be targeted to strategically maximize the effect of your well-crafted content. Each fall thereafter, we’ll help you assess the changing geographic distribution of your students to refine your game plan.

Online edition

Every edition of your print magazine has a corresponding OnlineEdition. The OE is a responsive site with automatic reformatting to fit desktop, tablet and smartphone. Each article has its own url and is configured for search engine optimization.

Social media

1. Ads on Instagram and Facebook

2. Targeted to your service area, age ranges (if desired) and subject area of interest

3. We do the work. You provide editorial approval beforehand and see the results of campaigns immediately afterward.

Putting it together is easy!

Select

The CareerFocus library is an ever-growing catalogue of thousands of articles, searchable by keyword, topic, or level of customization. Because every college has specific needs, all of our content is designed with an eye toward adaptability.

Every article in the CareerFocus library can be customized to reflect your college’s unique brand identity, from color palettes to fonts to special design elements.

Build

Our Edition Builder online interface lets you pick articles from the library, edit them to fit your school, and collaborate with colleagues and our editors.

Templates and ready-to-go articles make putting a magazine together a painless process. With fields for student profiles and program details, adaptable feature articles are the perfect way to spark interest in your college’s course offerings.

Modify

CareerFocus Express Editions are complete magazines that you can customize by dropping in photos of your own students, and the rest is all but done. Seven versions (and growing) to choose from. Put the content together in hours, not weeks.

Great idea Kishwaukee Community College!

Belinda Epps Definitely would appreciate a later time in the day. Don't get off work until 5.
Lisa Gibney McColley Is there another one later in day? That's tough time w/ after school pick ups and sports & such.
Robin Bradley Hansel Thanks, when will the archived version of this demo be available for viewing on your website?
Kandy Camden Crouch I already have one in college. Another one will start in 2017, Do I need a different FSA ID for each child?
Valorie Parent Can we watch this video outside of the 5 - 6pm time frame?
Michele Keene Interested in later in evening anything??
Julie Mace Any other dates??
Yazmin Aguilar What about WASFA?
Shelby Whealton Sams I set up an FSA I'd for myself. I don't recall getting a confirmation email but when I log into my acct it says "matched". So am I good to go?
Sandie Smith Hello, my name is Sandie and I am an ASPIRE volunteer at the local high school. I have been hearing rumors that those families who's income has extreme change from, 2015 to 2016, may be able to challenge the college, financial aid office, and show financials from 2016 and perhaps receive the Pell Grant and possibly the Oregon Opportunity Grant. Is this true? 2nd question, the students I worked with last year, 2015-2016, some had this situation as well and are figuring they are not going to qualify for 2 years. Example: Parent worked full time from January 2015 to August 2015, been unemployed since. Income was to high for Pell grant for 2016/2017 FAFSA.
Barbara Kane So the parents and student should get a FSA ID? That is what I read and I got this message: Important: Only the FSA ID owner should create and use an FSA ID. The FSA ID is a legal signature that should only be used by its owner. Additionally, having an FSA ID created by someone else can lead to losing access to the account and to the websites necessary to get financial aid. Only use one browser window when creating an FSA ID or retrieving a forgotten username or password. Always click CANCEL when you are done to clear your data.

Karen Vicknair Bordelon Will the webinar cover uncommon questions or can questions be asked? My 3rd child will be starting college in fall 2017 and we have had questions about income tax every year for them that nobody is quite sure how to answer.
Aunt Ammy Benson Even the webinar sign up is confusing. For the most parents are filling this out for their kids. You HAVE to specify WHOSE name you expect (parent OR student!!!!!!!!)
Tammy Berkey When I click on it, it says it's closed and there is a waiting list?
Michelle Ross Where will the recorded webinar be posted? I registered for it, but discovered a time conflict in my schedule. 😳
Chrissi Klein It says this is closed and put me on a waiting list!?!?
Amy Simpson Melba Semidey Garcia... They changed submission from Jan to Oct
Melanie Howe Why the change to October from the January date in previous years?
KateLyn Gillia Do reuse the fafsa id from last year?
Tasha Smith Tamieka Pullen here is a webinar for FAFSA
Yolanda Orozco-Juarez This is great#
Jennifer Legerski ..
Husaina Mohammed sallam to everybody

WalletHub's overall take? Community College students "out-earn" bachelor's degree holders ... and "get the last laugh"!
