BURLINGTON, Mass., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CSB Training, LLC, a professional development company, today announced the release of its first two Career Skills Builder products to help professionals and foreign nationals advance their careers.
The Career Skills Builder Program is a series of 15 classes-offered online or downloaded to virtually any device-that come with a supporting career journal, planner, and other tools that guide professionals step by step through an intensive course in how to advance their career.
"There is so much valuable information available today. That's the good news, and it's also the bad news," said CSB Training President John Greene. "It's easy to find yourself distracted or overwhelmed when you're looking for resources online that truly add value to your career."
Greene is also chief operating officer of Burlington-based Collaborative Consulting. Prior to Collaborative and CSB Training, he served in numerous executive roles at Fidelity Investments for 20 years.
"Our program is the whole package," Greene added. "You can't lose your way in the material, because it's fast-paced and it all makes sense. It's compelling, systematic, and easy to use."
In today's job competitive market, people are looking for every possible edge. But they're also pressed for time in their daily work and personal lives. Career Skills Builder programs condense the very best professional development techniques-collected through years of research-on how to advance in a career.
"Three factors have converged to make this kind of training imperative," Greene said. "First, the most recent recession took so many jobs with it. They're not coming back. Second, people are working longer than they used to and they need to stay relevant. Third, professional life is fiercely competitive and it's harder to get promoted-or even find a job."
Greene formed a core team to launch CSB Training in 2012. But the wisdom packed into the program he's been collecting that for many years.
"I've been fortunate to work with skillful, seasoned executives throughout my career," Greene said. "From CEOs to billionaires. And scores of talented professionals. Our Career Skills Builder programs began with the most indispensable insights and words of wisdom from those colleagues and clients."
"Simply put, it's the stuff that works, the stuff that makes a difference," he added.
CSB Training assembled the collective knowledge from its entire team into a lesson plan that strictly focuses on a defined skill set people must master to get ahead.
"Many of the skills you need to succeed are things anyone can do," Greene said. "The trick: you have to look at them as a complete package. Too many people focus on one aspect of their career, like the technical execution of their job, without honing the corporate social skills and leadership skills that make you stand out from the pack."
While key economic indicators may point to a recovery, jobs have been slow to return to Corporate America. That means competition for top jobs will continue to be tight. But even for professionals who are currently employed, it's essential to continually update those critical skills-from managing projects to getting along with the boss to leading a team.
"The bottom line is that people need to continually advance their career in order to both survive and thrive in any organization," Greene said.
The firm plans to release more specialty versions of Career Skills Builder in 2014.
