Job Placement Assistance
The Stride Center doesn’t just train its students in IT – it prepares them in every aspect for a new career. Stride understands the barriers students face to finding a good job. That’s why we know technical training is not enough. Stride operates a “high touch” program. Please click on a photo below to see what students and graduates are saying about The Stride Center.
We maintain a 70% placement rate for our CompTIA A+ certified graduates. When they gain hands-on experience through our social venture, Stride Solutions Contact Center, our placement rate is even greater. Students with an Advanced Certification increase our placement rate to over 75%, and with two Advanced Certifications it's over 85%. Our most successful graduates are those that have taken adavantage of our internships and have an Advanced Certification, leading to a placement rate of 90%.
We engage with our students and graduates through multiple avenues. We post current job listings and articles for continued professional development. Primarily, we encourage them to network through LinkedIn. They can also connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and through text messaging. Our employment partners and staffing agencies also connect with us through our social media intiatives to stay current with our talented graduates. Staying connected and engaged is a skill our graduates will carry with them into the professional world.
