Overcoming fear to start your career training journey

Overcoming fear to start your career training journey

At YTI Career Institute, new students take their first step toward a shared goal of employment in a new career several times each year. These students are a mix of adult learners and recent high school graduates, varying in age, background, and interests. For many of them, starting their journey did not come without first overcoming their greatest obstacle: fear.

The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."
— Nelson Mandela

It's natural for fear and anxiety to arise when considering a life change. Getting the training and education you need to start a new career is not a decision to take lightly. Before getting started on their career training journey, many of our students had to face one or more of the following fears:

Their fear: Fitting in

They found YTI Career Institute's student body to be a diverse group. Our students share the same goal and often support each other and make friends across varying ages, backgrounds and interests.

Their fear: Paying for school

Students found our team of Educational Funding Specialists to be helpful in finding all the resources that might be available to them. Federal, institutional and private programs can make career training more affordable. All possibilities are explored including grants and scholarships.

Their fear: Workload

They found that many of YTI Career Institute's programs offer day and night options to fit the schedules of students with all needs. Students can schedule classes around their commitments, including full or part time jobs.

Their fear: Failure

Everyone hates to fail, but we know that a fear of failure can hold us back from achieving our goals. Many YTI students quickly found themselves engaged in their program's subject matter through our hands-on approach to career training. This "learning-by-doing" model keeps students active and helps build the confidence needed to find success.

Their fear: Finding the right school

At YTI Career Institute, we realize the decision of where to get an education is one of the most important you'll ever make. Our Career Program Specialists help our students explore their options in choosing a career that's the right fit. We work with them through the entire admissions process to make sure they're the right fit for us!
