Through training students and working with industry leaders, we’ve learned what it takes to help our graduates succeed. If you succeed, Hamilton Tech succeeds. Our Program Advisory Committee meets twice each year and is made up of local business and human resource professionals who review the curriculum, discuss current hiring trends, employment needs, and partnership opportunities. It's connections like these that facilitate the future success of Hamilton Tech graduates: employers know us, know our students, and understand the value of the training that Hamilton Tech provides.
Both part-time and full-time placement assistance is available to students.
EMPLOYMENT IS NOT GUARANTEED BY THE SCHOOL. For more information about our graduation rates, the median loan debt of students who have completed the program, and other important information, please visit our consumer information page here:
Hamilton Tech may host “On-Campus Interviews” during any portion of a semester.
Eight to ten weeks prior to your graduation, the college may mail announcements to suitable companies who may wish to interview you on campus.
Hamilton Tech’s reputation is built on the depth of its programs and the level of your professionalism. In fact, employers seek out Hamilton Tech graduates because you’ve been trained to value attendance, on-time arrival, and professional dress and grooming – the same values that are so desirable in the workplace.
Career Services assists you throughout your program to help you achieve your goals. The Career Services Department provides the following workshops:
During your training, you will write a resume to market yourself to employers in your career field. This resume is a "living, breathing" document that will change throughout your program and your career. As you add skills and experience, your resume will need to be adapted to reflect those changes. One size does not fit all. We'll discuss the importance of keeping your resume fresh, up-to-date and honest.
In addition to your resume, you will create an effective cover letter introducing you to employers. The cover letter should capture the attention of the employer and encourage them to read your resume and consider you for their open position.
You are encouraged throughout your program to compile examples of your finest work. This portfolio is used on interviews to show an employer your professional and technical capabilities.
To help you stand out at the interview, you will learn what managers are looking for in an interview. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to practice your interviewing skills in front of an employer in a mock interview setting. This process provides you valuable feedback on presenting yourself as “the best candidate possible.”
Towards the end of your program, the Career Services department may distribute your resume to employers seeking your skill set. As a graduate, you will be kept informed of new opportunities/employers who are hiring for your field of study. Keep in touch with Career Services and provide a valid e-mail address so that we can keep in touch with you.
With so many employers posting careers online, you will learn which websites are best for your field, how to protect your identity, and how to apply for careers online.
Career Services will notify you of career opportunities by posting job announcements on the College's bulletin boards. After graduation, these opportunities will be e-mailed directly to you so long as you have provided a valid e-mail address and wish to receive the notices.
