Within Your Reach

Connect to a brighter tomorrow

The College’s primary focus is to produce graduates who fulfill the evolving needs of the communities that the College serves. Students and graduates can take advantage of numerous career services that enhance their educational experience. Career Services helps students and graduates acquire professional development skills that will serve them throughout their careers. Areas addressed include assessing career goals; developing resumes; increasing marketability; building networking and interviewing techniques; and improving salary negotiation skills. Additional assistance is provided through local and national job postings, which identify currently available career opportunities. Students should note that the College cannot and does not guarantee employment.

In an effort to assist students in reaching their targeted employment goals, students are encouraged to complete an Individual Career Plan with a Career Services Advisor by the end of Week 2 in their training program. This plan will be attached to their records and deadlines will be provided to the students to remind them of when each target area should be completed.

Target areas include short-term and long-term employment goals, career exploration, assessment of barriers, and resume building. Target areas also include regular follow-up meetings with a Career Advisor to discuss and assess the progress made toward their completion.

Upon graduation, students complete and submit a Graduate Employment Status Form to confirm whether they still need job placement assistance. A career Advisor will communicate regularly with the student to provide him with local and national job postings and other types of assistance (resume polishing, networking, interviewing techniques, etc.) as needed.
