Coming here after I was laid off at my job actually gave me an appetite for more education.
Welcome to Your Support Center
Our Career Services department helps prepare students for their new career with job services that complement our career training programs. Throughout your classes at Career Quest, you will meet with our Career Services team to build on soft skills and employability. Our goal is to help you land a career that you’re passionate about!
With over 20 years in service, our Career Services team has developed many outstanding partnerships with local employers within our communities. We work with these employers to provide our students with quality externship sites and options for employment after graduation. While job placement cannot be guaranteed, our long-lasting partnerships already put you a step ahead in your job search. Often, our employer partners will have guest lecturers in class and attend job fairs held on campus.
At each of our campus locations, we develop an advisory board assembled of local employers who hire and work with candidates that fall within the careers of our programs of study. We develop our core curriculum taught in our classes with significant input from locally based Advisory Board members. This way, we can ensure that our students are learning the skills most needed in the field. Read more about our Advisory Board.
