Don’t fear what comes after graduation. Embrace it.
It’s all about preparing for your career beginning your first quarter at PTC. This is not a college where you and what you’re passionate about get lost in the shuffle. Right from the start, you’re pretty much on a first-name basis with your career advisor. Working as a team, career goals are set. Skills are learned. Employer connections are made.
Thanks to our Career Services team, you’re also exposed to notable employers at career fairs, and in networking and mock interview events. You take career prep classes throughout your academic career. Industry and alumni speakers provide real-world insight during lively visits on campus. And your Career Services advisor will identify job opportunities for you and schedule interviews. Need a part-time job while you’re going to school? Employers are on campus all of the time to seek new hires.
A hallmark of a PTC education: Your internship
By the time you walk across that stage to pick up your PTC diploma, you’ve gotten your feet wet in your field—and not just by learning the curriculum in classrooms and labs (employers have a major hand in that, too). If you’re earning a degree on campus, you’ll get actual work experience in an internship or clinical rotation. It’s hard wired in the curriculum during your last quarter, and gets you out of the comfort of the classroom. Talk about a confidence boost.
The best hire the best.
