Q: What types of services does the Career Center provide students?
A: There are a variety of things we do for students, both during and after their course/program. We assist them by showing them how to better interview and how to network themselves. We offer job postings, newsletter articles on relevant "how to" career subjects, résumé/cover letter information and recommendation letters. Often times we will provide individual résumé and cover letter review and critique. In the end, we want our students to be self-sufficient.
Q: In what ways does the Career Center maintain its relationship with the students (during and post-program)?
The Career Center maintains relationships with students during their enrollment and after the students complete their course(s) or program(s). It is our mission to educate, motivate and assist our students on their path to employment. The purpose of our services is to build connections between as many students and employers as possible. An important part of the career assistance here at Allied is the continual contact and follow-through once they are done with the course/program. In order to conduct a productive job search we work with students/graduates by providing them with the tools and knowledge on how to do a self-sufficient job search.
Q: Any future plans for the Career Center you’d like to comment on?

We assist them by showing them how to better interview and how to network themselves. Our primary function is to teach our students to be self-sufficient in finding employment.
Q: In what capacity does the Career Center work with other departments?
A: The Career Center works with various departments. We communicate regularly with the Student Affairs and Admissions Departments.
