A primary goal of Platt College is to assist all graduates in their job search in the field for which they have been trained. The school maintains an active career services department to assist graduates as well as current students seeking part-time or full-time jobs while attending school. Students are given the opportunity to pursue job referrals generated by Career Services. A majority of our graduates who seek employment find positions in the field for which they are trained. However, the school cannot guarantee employment.
Our Career Services personnel explain and directly assist with our student’s job search process. Placement efforts begin on orientation day and continue through graduation and beyond. Career Services aims to build the job acquiring skills of our students through one-on-one interviews and workshops in the following areas:
- Career planning
- Resume and cover letter writing
- Completing applications
- Researching and contacting potential employers
- Interviewing skills
- Portfolio preparation
Career Services also hosts industry specific seminars which often feature prominent professionals in the field.
Students, graduates, and employers please contact our experienced Career Services Directors to learn more!
