Everest’s Career Services Make an Important Difference

Career ServicesMost Americans view college as a stepping stone to a better career and earning potential. Yet, because of economic circumstances, most colleges and universities are actually cutting back on their career counseling and job placement programs.

Recently, USA Today looked at this problem in an article titled, “Pressure builds for schools to help grads get jobs.” In the piece, writer Jon Marcus notes, “Most universities are spending less, not more, on their career centers. Last year, the budget of the average college career office dropped by nearly 16 percent, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers. The average number of job-hunting workshops and internship placements universities provide has also fallen. The average college career counselor today serves 1,645 students, and on campuses with enrollments of more than 20,000, the ratio is one to an unwieldy 5,876, the association reports.”*

Everest understands the importance of post-graduation career support, which is why it has made job search preparation and job placement top priorities at all of its more than 100 campuses throughout the United States and Canada.

Career Services Prepare Students for the Job Market

Every Everest campus has a dedicated Career Services department. The professionals in these departments offer students an array of services while they’re in school and after they graduate. These services include:

  • Help with resume writing
  • Help choosing professional wardrobes for job interviews
  • Job interview coaching and rehearsals
  • Help identifying and contacting local employers
  • Arranging for internships and externships

These services continue to be available to Everest graduates even after they’ve graduated.

The Everest Edge

Several Everest campuses now offer one-year diploma programs that include the Everest Edge, a program designed to provide additional help to career-bound students. This includes teaching and practicing “soft skills” such as punctuality, professionalism and workplace communication as part of the day-to-day curriculum.
