The NLI Job Readiness program is constantly upgraded to give our students the most up-to-date information on the ever-changing job market. We encompasses various components which work towards assisting students and graduates in completing their educational process with gainful employment. NLI has a working relationship with companies and recruiters in the area that provide us with job leads, as well as an externship program for students who would like more experience before entering the job market.
Students are expected to take advantage of our Job Readiness Workshops once they have completed 50% or more of their course. The workshops provide our students with essential job search techniques (resume & cover letter writing, interviewing, follow-up) along with many extras such as how to answer the dreaded salary requirement question, social media tips/tricks, and much more!
The Job Readiness Workshop series is broken down into 12 interactive, informational classes where students are encouraged not only to listen and learn, but to also share their prior experiences for others to learn from as well. After attending our workshop series, you will be prepared to enter the job market with all of the documents, knowledge and confidence you need to obtain employment. For those who need it, we are also available for meetings with students on a one-on-one basis.
The workshop series, as well as the other services our Job Readiness department offers, is free of charge to our students and is highly recommended for anyone who is entering the job market.
