One Purpose of Career Colleges: Placement

The goal of any college is to educate students in a program of interest in which they would like to work someday. There are resources at these colleges for students to help them find internships and jobs related to their choice of study, but is there an entire department dedicated to helping each individual student find a position in their chosen career field?
ACICS, career colleges

As a career college, Globe University measures success based on placement rates. The annual goal is to place 85 percent or more students in their chosen career field. In fact, to maintain national accreditation by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), each campus is required annually to submit their placement and retention rates (along with many other requirements) to ACICS.

About Career Services:

Throughout a students’ time at Globe University, as they prepare to graduate, and through any later employment transitions, the career services department at each campus will support students to achieve their career goals by offering the following:

  • One-on-one help on creating/editing resumes and cover letters
  • Interview tips and mock interviews
  • On-campus job fairs
  • Identifying and communicating job opportunities while students are in school
  • Identifying career positions of interest within a program
  • Professional workshops

“We pride ourselves in placing our students in the career field they studied so hard for and dreamed of working in,” said Teresa Obinger, director of career services at Globe University-Woodbury. “There is nothing better than getting those thank-you cards and phone calls from students working in their career fields. It’s why we do what we do.”

About the ACICS:

ACICS is the largest national accrediting organization of degree-granting institutions with the mission to advance educational excellence at independent, nonpublic career schools, colleges, and organizations like Globe University. This is achieved through a deliberate and thorough accreditation process of quality assurance and enhancement as well as ethical business and educational practices.
