How career services support students beyond the classroom
When a student enrolls at a school like Porter and Chester Institute, they do so because they are committed to continuing their education with the goal of being employed in a desired field after graduation. While the skills learned in the classroom and through hands-on training are extremely important to on-the job success, so are those that can be discovered through the Career Services Department.

The door is always open
If you need help preparing for the next quiz, you would speak with your instructor to learn more about the subject. The same thing applies with the Career Services department - they are here to help you identify the employment opportunities and skills you need as you embark on your career.
From the time you enroll to the time you graduate, our advisors are there to guide you and identify potential opportunities, from career fairs to full-time roles, by utilizing their connections with employers. Many employers will reach out to schools directly to fill their needs.
Practice makes perfect
