Attention all students: did you know that you have access to the 职业服务 department? Since November is 职业生涯 Development Month, we thought we’d put a spotlight on the valuable resources that can be found there that can help in your search for and land your first professional role.
当你即将毕业时, the staff members in the 职业服务 department can help prepare you for your job search. 在你最后一个任期内, plan to meet with the Director of 职业服务 or other 职业服务 professional to discuss your career plans.
In addition to discussing your career goals, Fortis career service professionals help students develop and refine other skills that will help them land entry-level positions. Often called “soft” or “critical,” these skills include qualities that will make an employee especially valuable to an employer such as effective communication strategies, professionalism and ethical behaviors and dressing for success. 职业生涯 services also help students develop and practice interview techniques, 准备好简历, 确定工作机会等.
Once you’re ready to start looking for your first job, career services can even help connect you to potential employers in the area. Our 职业服务 department acts as a liaison, connecting businesses with the prospective employees they need to fill their open positions. 职业生涯 services departments often host job fairs and can even match students with employers or set up job interviews for graduates.
Local employers love our graduates. “Fortis is a resource for me when we’re looking to hire new candidates because I can reach out to them, get a full in-depth idea of how that student’s been, 他们是如何参与的, how they did in their clinicals, 他们有多好的技能啊,凯尔·格里尔说, who hires medical assistants for a dermatology office in Cookeville, 田纳西州. “We look at Fortis when we want to hire a new employee because we know that they know us, 他们知道我们的办公室, 他们了解我们的提供者, 他们知道我们的人员需求, 他们了解我们的病人, 他们了解我们的业务.”
Obtaining employment will ultimately be your responsibility, but it’s reassuring to know that the team at the 职业服务 department will cheer you on and help you prepare for your next step. If you’re considering a career in medical assisting, Fortis can help you get on the path with a strong education. 点击这里了解更多 about the program or call 1-855-436-7847 to talk to a counselor about getting started today!
