Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (D – CA) and Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido recently stressed the importance of training for in-demand careers in the local job market at the official opening of Everest College’s Santa Ana Campus.
With U.S. job creation nearly coming to a halt in January, the mayor said getting the right education is the only way job seekers will have a better chance of finding employment in a highly competitive market.
“This is a beautiful solution,” said Pulido, describing the opportunities offered by the new campus. “There is such a demand for what you (Everest College) do. We need people that are well trained so they can go into the medical field and to many other areas that Everest is a part of.”
The congresswoman said receiving an education is as important as knowing what is available in the job market.
“There are going to be jobs for you available when you get yourselves out of here (Everest College),” she said. “And we want to make sure you come in and get trained, and have the resources available to allow you to do that.”
The new campus offers training for careers in massage therapy, medical administrative assistant, medical assistant, medical insurance billing and coding, and pharmacy technician.
