NPC has services that can help prepare you for applying and securing your dream job.
Keep The Lines of Communication with Your Program Director Open
Employers tend to contact their counterparts at NPC and inquire as to which students would be a “good fit” for their company. So, the first rule of thumb is to keep the line of communication with your program director open. Let them know the aspects of your career you enjoy the most, where you plan to locate after graduation, and type of work environment you desire. Then your program director can share with you job leads as he/she receives them. Also register for the CareerLink job postings.
