At Miller-Motte, our mission is to provide an education and placement assistance that help each student begin a new and exciting career in a field they love. Our education provides you with hands-on learning and real-world experience in the workplace – two things employers look for in future employees.
When you come to Miller-Motte you gain more than an education in your field of study, you get the training you need for a great new career. Our job placement assistance includes:
Meeting with an Admissions Representative
One of the first things you’ll do when you start at Miller-Motte is meet with an Admissions Representative. Together, you will discuss your strengths, interests, and goals for the future. With guidance from your Admissions Representative, you will choose a program that best fits your needs and interests.
New Student Orientation
At the beginning of each quarter, we hold New Student Orientations where you meet other students and instructors. You’ll see what your chosen campus has to offer and learn what is expected of you as a Miller-Motte student.
As you complete your degree, diploma or certificate, you will work on building a career portfolio. In it, you will include samples of your work, letters of recommendation and other items that showcase your skills and knowledge to future employers. This will help communicate to employers that you’re the right person for the job.
For most programs as part of your learning experience, you will have the opportunity to do an externship. This is a chance to work in your field with proper mentorship, prior to graduating. You will take what you learn from the classroom and apply them in a work setting. This will provide you with the hands-on training you need to be a qualified job candidate. Externship course offerings vary by program.
Throughout the year, we offer several career workshops that prepare you for a career in today’s job market. You will learn how to dress for success, how to draft a resume and even participate in mock interviews. Once you complete these workshops, you will be even more prepared to enter the job market.
For more than a century, we have been developing close relationships with local businesses and organizations. What does that mean for you? It means we’re able to place you in an externship with a local company or business, giving you the hands-on, real-world experience employers are looking for. Plus, you’ll carry the excellent reputation of Miller-Motte with you wherever you go.
You can take advantage of all of these benefits during your time at Miller-Motte. And, the support doesn’t end after graduation! Throughout your career, you can come back to Miller-Motte and get help, assistance, and guidance. Whether you decide to change jobs or need to prepare for promotion, we’re here to help.
