Coming from a traditional four-year institution, I have always been curious about career schools. My trip to Medix School in Towson, Md., left me amazed at the exceptional service they provide to their students and also the critical skill shortage void they are helping to fill in the allied health sector.
There are many things for students to consider when deciding to attend college. One of the most important is making sure that the education they receive will help them find employment upon graduation. I visited National College in Lexington, KY, recently and spoke with campus staff regarding their school’s ability to help students after they graduate.
“We are all about jobs,” said Jim McGee, director of admissions at the Lexington campus.
For many students, the last two years of high school can be stressful and overwhelming. Various thoughts juniors and seniors may have while preparing for life after high school could include, "Will I be able to handle college life?", "Will there be anyone like me there?" or, "How will I find a job after college?" On a recent visit to DeVry University in Arlington, Va., I met a few students who had advice for graduating high school seniors.
