Job Placement Assistance
Throughout your classes at Career Quest, you will be preparing for employment and working closely with our Career Services team. Near the end, your program may have an externship component that provides you 5 weeks of hands-on training in the workplace before you’ve even graduated. Often times, students get hired right out of their externship. Once you have completed your career training program, Career Services will reach out to local community employers and Advisory Board members for any current open positions, to see if there may be a fit for you. They also routinely check job posting sites and seek out new opportunities for our students. Our staff of Placement Coordinators helps students find work to support their needs as they progress in their chosen program, as well as prepare them to compete for and win new jobs in their field.
Speak to an admissions representative to learn more about the value of Career Services and how they can provide the support you need to be successful.
