How does Placement work with graduates?

A Placement Advisor works with each graduate to understand their background and how it applies to their job search. They’ll also discuss current strengths + weaknesses, interests, and the challenges a graduate may face in the job search process.

To start, information is collected via a Placement questionnaire designed to get a better understanding of each graduate. Once completed, an Advisor will personally be assigned to the graduate and have a 1-on-1 session together. The Placement Advisor will build a relationship with the graduate/learner, offer customized career guidance, and streamline candidate matching to Employer Partners.

The learner will be expected to take the lead in their job search while working with their Placement Advisor and applying their training from the career readiness curriculum.
