Lifetime Career Assistance
McCann School of Business & Technology offers students and graduates access to many different resources geared to helping them find the right job. Throughout your training, you will be establishing your own professional identity that you can show potential employers when you graduate.
Having access to Lifetime Career Assistance doesn’t end once you graduate. You can come back to McCann at any point during your career to get help with your résumé, practice your interview skills and attend course refreshers. We understand that the average worker changes his or her job several times throughout their career, and we will be there for you whether you’re looking for a different job or you’re up for a promotion.
As part of most programs, you will be placed in an externship, which is designed to give you hands-on training and real-life work experience. You will work with your Program Director and an Externship Coordinator to determine the best fit for you.
This real-life experience will also look great on your résumé to show employers you already have the skills they are looking for in an employee. Not only will you gain valuable knowledge during your externship, but also important relationships you can carry with you throughout your career. Click here to learn more about externships.
At McCann, we understand how important it is to keep up-to-date on industry trends, technology and skills. That is why as part of Lifetime Career Assistance you have the opportunity to come back and take refresher courses. You can audit any course you took while attending McCann to help you brush up on skills you don’t use on a regular basis while also learning new information and techniques.
Need help pulling your portfolio together? We are here to help you do just that. Whether you are a current student or a graduate from McCann, we will help you build your Career Portfolio. Employers seek individuals with strong portfolios because they show employers:
1) You have the knowledge and the skills needed for the job, and
2) Your commitment to your education so much that you want to present your achievement professionally. It shows you care.
Even after you graduate, you can meet with a member of our Career Services team to help update your Career Portfolio with all of the achievements you’ve been able to accumulate since you left McCann.
