Placement Assistance

It is the goal of Healthcare Training Institute to provide assistance to every graduate to obtain an entry-level position in a career related to their chosen field of study. The school has a full-time employee to develop student career goals and job search missions. The Career Services Director performs all career placement assistance, student job interview preparation (e.g. mock interviews, presentation tips, etc.) job search preparation, the location of job opportunities as well as telephone and written contact recommendations. In addition, this individual performs externship placement affiliation responsibilities. The Career Services Assistant’s duties include resume preparation, faxing resumes and cover letters to prospective employers, etc. Students who do not wish to participate in job placement assistance must sign a Waiver of Job Placement Assistance form. The Career Services Director also contacts employers to verify the graduate’s employment status. Upon verification, announcement cards are prepared and posted on one of two bulletin boards dedicated to this purpose.

School Advising

Students have access to faculty and administrative staff for vocational, academic, tutoring, student records, leave of absence, and personal advisement. Students are also welcome to meet with faculty members after class in their respective classrooms to discuss any issues they may have. At the beginning of the program an orientation is offered specifically with respect to student advising.

The instructor recognizes a student’s need for academic advisement and refers the student to the appropriate staff and/or faculty member to resolve the matter in a timely manner. Healthcare Training Institute maintains documentation of all student advisement sessions by date, time and place in the student’s file.

Individual Advising

In some instances the instructor or Director of Education is asked to attend. If the case is meritorious, the Administration Director will also be in attendance. The cases presented are registered and constant follow-up is provided until resolution.
