4 Ways Career Services Can Help Students & Graduates

At Miller-Motte College (MMC), we strive to help our students and graduates improve their lives in 33 months or less. We provide career-focused programs, classes lead by industry-experienced instructors, and hands-on training for students attending campus based programs to better prepare students for entry-level positions. Students develop technical skills throughout their program and can turn them into practical skills through projects or training.
Alongside our career-focused curriculum, every MMC student and graduate has access to our career services team. Each service provided by our team is designed to help students and graduates develop as entry-level professionals. While we cannot, and do not, guarantee employment, our team works to help MMC students and graduates explore placement opportunities.

What are Career Services?

Career services teams are designed to help students and graduates develop as professionals. This development can include revising resumes, improving interview skills, exploring networking opportunities, learning to vet potential employers, and more. These services help students and graduates work towards their career goals by providing next steps, potential job leads, and more.
At Miller-Motte, our career services team is composed of dedicated professionals with expertise in career development and employer relations. They are trained to vet potential employers, provide resume assistance, help students explore internship or externship opportunities, and more.

Career Consultations

Career consultations help students gain clarity on their career goals and better understand how their program ties into these goals. This is ideal for students and graduates who are unsure if they’re on the right track or lack clarity. During these consultations, our career services team assesses a student’s skills and interests to provide personalized advice and support.
Students and graduates who already have clarity can also benefit from our career consultation services. Rather than seeking clarity, these students can inform our team of their goals, experiences, and skills.
Our career services team works with students to determine career opportunities best aligned with their skills, experience, and interest. As priorities or goals shift, our career services team can help students adjust their plan if necessary. These new plans can provide alternate ways for students or graduates to reach the same goal.
Some steps our career services team may suggest students and graduates take can include:

  • Undergoing optional training sessions
  • Updating current resumes or CV letters
  • Performing mock interviews
  • Attending upcoming career fairs and more.

Externship Placement Assistance

Over the years, Miller-Motte College has developed close partnerships with local businesses across various industries. Our career services team can tap into these resources to help eligible students find placement for externship opportunities. These opportunities are a great way for students to gain experience in real-world settings and expand their professional networks.
Not every Miller-Motte program offers an externship opportunity. Students enrolled in 100% online programs have a capstone course in lieu of an externship opportunity.
Students in the following hybrid programs may be eligible for externship opportunities:

  • Business Administration

This allows students and graduates to browse a variety of open positions best suited to their interests, skills, and experience.
Our career services team uses our job board to send relevant leads to MMC students and graduates. They may also inform graduates and students of upcoming career fairs. This allows job seekers to meet, submit their resume to, and leave a good impression on potential employers.
