Since Chandra and Liz from The Career Loft Inc./eLoft Careers presented their products and services in our first meeting we were immediately impressed. We have bought into their services, support and products and we have not looked back since. Our students have been impacted immensely and our careers services team have been freed up to focus on developing relationships with our students and graduates achieving improved outcomes. Not to mention, we have built stronger and more valued relationships with our placement community partners as a result of the incredible eLoft Careers online, on-demand courses and support.
A big thank you to our new partner eLoft Careers for helping our careers services team become more effective and more efficient!! Gerry S., Campus Director, Westervelt College London Campus
eLoft training courses have been of tremendous value to our students, graduates, and the Career Services department. The online training courses are rich in content, easy to follow and complete, and full of additional resources for students/graduates to utilize. Our students love the flexibility of being able to work through a course at their own pace, as it is not always possible to spend a 2 hour segment dedicated to finishing a course.
We hold mock interviews with each student to further solidify their learning from the eloft courses. We repeatedly hear multiple positive comments at the end of the mock interview regarding the value of the courses and how much the students have learned. They all say the courses and interview have significantly increased their confidence with a process that is often overwhelming. As we work with the adult learner, we have experienced negative attitudes from some students who say "I've done this type of training multiple times - you can't teach me anything." I'm proud to say that these students are quickly turned around when they see the level of detail and expertise made available through the courses.
As a Career Services trainer, providing students with these courses has decreased the amount of time previously required in the classroom to impart the same material. For those who need extra support and review, they have access to each course for 30 days, allowing them to review and reinforce each lesson. Additional courses such as Job Search Strategies and Networking Success are extremely valuable to further support graduates who come looking for some extra help.
I would highly recommend eLoft training courses to any HR/Career Professional looking to enhance their program delivery. Deb M., Career Services Manager, Westervelt College
From our first meeting with Chandra and Liz we were confident that we would be happy with not only the eLoft platform but also the service. With prompt replies to queries and outstanding training we have felt supported at every turn.
As a Career College, meaningful employment for our students is our ultimate goal. The tools provided on the eLoft platform bring us one step closer to this. Course layout, comprehensive online lectures and easy to use templates have made the user experience a positive one.
We have incorporated the platform with our classroom instruction, using the online lectures and quizzes as a jumping off point for classroom discussion. Students are finding an added confidence in their career management skills as the Instructor reinforces the platform content and the platform content reinforces the Instructor delivered information. The Career Management course is often fast paced, with eLoft, students can easily prepare for class and review content after class. The organization of the material makes this process seamless and cuts down on confusion. eLoft has added an important tool to our tool belt in our pursuit of supporting our students in their goals.

Testimonials from Job Seekers
After job searching for over a month and having no success, Liz's coaching helped me to greatly improve my resume and cover letter to better attract employers and stand out in my job applications. Not only this but Liz edited the entire format of my resume to be better matched when put through an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) which most companies use these days. Within one week of helping edit my resume and cover letter I had already received my first job interview. Along with this, I used the interview coaching service which helped me prepare and really paid off as I landed the job after the first interview! Cannot thank Liz and eLoft enough for their help!
