Employer Partnerships

One of our main goals at Everest is to give you the training you need to pursue your career goals. And it’s one of the reasons employers partner with us. They know we help prepare students for success from day one.

Everest works hard to build its employer network to help you look for your first job after graduation. Every campus has a representative working to create partnerships with regional and national companies, as well as local employers within the community. And our partners appreciate the quality of our graduates.

“Our partnership with Everest gives us access to the best possible candidates for our clients.”

—Judy Whelehan, Area Director, Adecco Medical and Science

“It is a challenge to find the best and the brightest to join our firm, and this (Everest) partnership enables us to seek out well-trained and qualified candidates.”

—Randy Andrews, CEO, Andrews International

With our partnerships and your hard work and training, your chances of finding a job in the field you trained for can be higher than someone out on their own. Career Services is ready to help graduates. To learn more, contact your local campus.

An Igniter Ambassador is an Everest student who has been chosen for his/her leadership potential, positive attitude and commitment to making the most of the Everest experience. Ambassadors participate in peer mentoring and peer tutoring, as well as hosting school events and fundraisers. The goal of the program is to create a peer-to-peer support system that encourages all students to grow, mature and succeed.

Everest students who choose to become Igniter Ambassadors do so to:

  • Improve their leadership skills
  • Establish new friendships
  • Help their fellow students
  • Make themselves more attractive to potential employers

Prospective Ambassadors must be at least in their program’s Module B/Two, but have not completed more than 80 percent of their program. Linear students must be in at least their second term. To learn how to become an Ambassador, including additional requirements for membership, speak to a faculty member or senior Igniter Ambassador.

Getting an education is an important first step in achieving your goals. Finding a job upon graduation is equally important–a job quite often lays the groundwork for success. Everest gives you the know-how and tools to develop skills that can help make you a better job candidate.

At Everest, we offer a variety of student support services such as:

  • Personal coaching on how to manage workplace situations
  • Helping you prepare a resume that’s capable of getting positive results
  • Rehearsing effective interview techniques
  • Teaching you how to dress appropriately for the work environment

But Everest’s support doesn’t just stop after you graduate. We’ll always be there to help update your resume, answer questions, and give advice on job market trends and how to stay competitive throughout your career. Everest offers ongoing career services. Contact us today to find out what the Everest experience is all about.

Going back to school for a diploma or degree can be an exciting but challenging transition. College-level work is often more advanced than high school.

There’s also a greater need for personal responsibility. For example, you may need to juggle schoolwork and your family, or even a full- or part-time job.

Fortunately, at Everest, we offer a variety of student support resources! We have representatives in all departments who can answer questions, offer guidance and advice, and support and encourage you if you’re feeling overwhelmed.

Our student finance planners can help you pick the best types of student loans* and help you setup your payment plan. Our Career Services staff can help you identify and contact employers upon graduation, and give you interview tips and resume guidance.

The staff at Everest are here to help you every step of the way, both during school and beyond.

*Financial aid is available for those who qualify.

Single parent tipsRaising children can be tough, especially if you’re trying to balance a home life while currently enrolled or thinking about attending school. Here are two single parent tips worth considering.

1.  Invest time and energy in positive activities. Spending quality time with your kids at parks, museums or just walking a trail might yield some surprising results with respect to the people you may meet.

2.  Don’t build walls around yourself. If you’ve been hurt in the past, it may feel natural to build up social walls. Keep yourself open to positive relationships with others and ask your friends and family for support when you need it.

The professionals at Everest understand all the aspects of student life and can help you work through challenges, whether you’re just starting school or already an Everest graduate.

If you would like confidential help while in school, you can take advantage of the Everest CARE program. Call our tollfree hotline at 1-888-852-6238 or visit the website at EverestCARES.com.
