Career Development Services

The ultimate objective of occupational training is to put people to work. It is not enough to teach a person a gainful skill; NGTC also offers assistance to that person in finding suitable employment. Thus, supplementary to the training program at the college, there is a job placement and follow-up program. While every effort is made to make students employable and to aid students in securing employment for which they were trained, the ultimate responsibility for finding a job rests with the student.

Career Services at NGTC include job referrals, job-seeking skills, and follow-up activities that aim at improving the quality of education at the college. Some of the objectives are:

  • To identify student’s needs, interests, and job proficiencies
  • To provide materials for career guidance
  • To assist students in making meaningful employment choices
  • To assist students in selecting additional preparation and/or education
  • To work with school staff in ensuring that students receive Interpersonal Relations and Professional Development training
  • To gain awareness of the job market and locate potential employers
  • To offer workshops and one-on-one sessions to perfect resumes, interviewing skills and proper completion of employment applications
  • …and much much more!
