CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 4, 2011) - With this week's encouraging job numbers, (see February's employment report from the U.S. Dept. of Labor at it is a great opportunity for job seekers to ramp up their job search.

It's time for job seekers to be armed with the latest tools and insights in order to present themselves as the best candidate. The Careers College, the world's most comprehensive online continuing education for job seekers, can help people hone their skills and discover insider secrets that convince employers they are the best candidate. "The economy might be the reason people have lost their jobs, but it's not the reason they're not finding new ones," says Bermont.

The Careers College was created with the mission of positively impacting the lives millions of people who thirst for landing a meaningful job in today's ultracompetitive job market. Different from typical online job search resources such as content factories or employment websites, The Careers College offers much more than a database and generic advice.

"The positive unemployment news is an opportunity for job seekers to accelerate their job search processes by using relevant tools and techniques to win," said Bermont. "Just as the judges on American Idol are looking for the 'total package,' so too are today's employers. By being well informed, asking the right questions and presenting oneself as the ideal candidate, job seekers will land their ideal job. The Careers College helps job seekers become the total package to prospective employers."
