Charleston, SC (PRWEB) August 5, 2009

PowerScore announces course discounts to unemployed workers collecting Unemployment Benefits. The new program will allow unemployed workers to take PowerScore’s GRE and GMAT preparation courses at a discounted rate. PowerScore initiated the program in an effort to assist those affected by current economic conditions. This new program follows the recent announcement from Educational Testing Service (ETS), offering a discounted registration rate of $ 75 for unemployed individuals registering for the GRE.

“During these demanding economic times, competition for job applicants is at an all-time high. Many positions that previously required only a bachelor’s degree now require graduate degrees,” said Dave Killoran, CEO. “PowerScore helps unemployed workers obtain the score they need in order to enter the graduate program of their choice and have a competitive edge in the job market.”

Since GRE and GMAT scores qualify students for entry into graduate programs, a preparation course is vital to obtaining a competitive score. Another motivation for preparation is that scores are closely linked to the amount of financial aid and scholarship money awarded to candidates.

The discounts include $ 50 off the Full-Length GMAT, Weekend GMAT, and Weekend GRE Courses.

In order to enroll and receive the discount, unemployed workers must call PowerScore at 800-545-1750 and request the Unemployment Discount. The Unemployed worker must be a U.S. citizen or resident alien, age eighteen (18) or older, who is currently unemployed and has become unemployed within the past 6 months, must be planning to take the GRE General Test or GMAT in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam or U.S. Virgin Islands, and be able to submit a copy of an Unemployment Benefits Statement from the past 90 days as proof of unemployment.
