Our Story
  • You know calculus, but can you work in a team?
  • You can write a paper, but can you write a memo?
  • You completed assignments on time, but can you manage your time when you set the due dates?

You learned a lot in the classroom that will benefit you for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, too many recent college graduates are learning that it isn’t enough to land that first job or stand out once you’re hired. Nobody teaches you how to build a network that can help make sure your resume is at the top of the pile or impress your first supervisor by managing difficult situations on your own. Until now.

Brighter Edge works with impressive employees at some of the most innovative, respected, and important companies so that you can learn the skills and abilities that they used to get there. You know what we’re teaching is valuable because our instructors would not be at the top of their field otherwise. Plus, we have done a lot of work to make sure our “Essential Skills and Abilities for a Changing Workforce” are the ones valued most by employers, so you can be confident that we will show you everything you need to succeed.

Our program is designed to meet your needs. Each of our online, self-paced courses with a pre-assessment designed to identify what you already know. As a result, you can move directly to information on the skills and abilities that you really need.

Ready to give yourself an edge over other recent graduates? Let us know here and you will be the first to find out when Brighter Edge launches. Be Exceptional.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I try Brigher Edge
Sure! Our first module on “The Art of Effective Planning” is open to the public. You can try it out at here.

My institution already teaches some of the professional skills and abilities covered by Brighter Edge. Is there a way for students to focus on the competencies we don’t cover?
Yes! We know that every student is different. Some will have already mastered some professional skills and abilities through classes, internships, and other experiences. That is why we chose a self-paced, competency-based format that allows each student move at their own pace based on their experience.

I have an interview for my dream job next week, but I have no idea how to prepare. Can Brighter Edge help me?
Definitely! If our students are going to shine in the workplace, someone needs to hire them first! Brighter Edge will teach you all of the skills you need to land your dream job - from developing a professional network to writing a cover letter and resume to acing that interview.

I’m ridiculously good at my job. How can I contribute to Brighter Edge?
First, congratulations! There are a few ways that you can help our students become ridiculously good at their jobs. We are always looking for individuals who can provide real world examples of the importance of “Essential Skills and Abilities for a Changing Workforce” to make our online program even stronger. We’re also growing our national network of professionals who are available to visit local campuses to provide a face-to-face complement to the lessons, as well as an opportunity for students to connect directly with a local employer. If you are interested in either one, please contact us.

Do I need to attend a Brighter Edge Campus or work for a Brighter Edge Workplace to use the program?
No way! Brighter Edge is open to everyone. Visit our registration page to learn more about individual partnerships.

Is this another great question?
Absolutely. Remember, there are no dumb questions, so ask away.
