Great News on the IT Job Front at MyComputerCareer.com

Posted by Bruce Ackerman on Mon, Aug 02, 2010

It was another great week for students of MyComputerCareer.com getting IT employment--especially in Dallas. This just in from Todd Mankin, Career Services Director at the Dallas Texas campus:

"What a week! It started off somewhat normal and by the end of the week I have 4 students going to work for AT&T on a 3 year contract through Pinnacle, the Dallas Campus is finishing strong with one of our best months to date."

And that's not all...

"I am super stoked about our new partnership with Pinnacle. It looks like they are going to keep me and my students very busy over the next few months submitting, interviewing, and hopefully several more job offers accepted. My current students that were hired are very excited and are going to lobby for us to get many more students in the door."

Good things are happening in Raleigh, too, with 7 new job orders in the current week. Our new Career Services Director for Houston has also been trained. Here's what Amy Onuska, (CS Director, Raleigh) has to say about her new colleague:

"I have had the pleasure of working with Beverly Kerney, the new Career Services Director for the Houston Campus.  I know that our future students in Houston are very lucky to have such an experienced and caring person overseeing the job search!"

Raleigh IT Jobs Update: 28 May 2010

Posted by Bruce Ackerman on Fri, May 28, 2010

 

Rob S. will be at IBM for at least the next 2 months-his first IT contract EVER! 

Chris H. accepted a contract to hire position through Modis at HCL America-his first full time IT JOB!!!!

Jorge M. will be joining a bi-lingual IBM help desk!  This will really help him to distance himself from the manufacturing IT positions he's had in the past!

Job Offers Accepted this Month: 11

I have been playing phone tag with 3 other students that have landed IT jobs on their own.....Chris W., Jason P. & Wayne B!  As soon as I have their info.....I'll be announcing 3 MORE JOB OFFERS ACCEPTED FOR JUNE!!!! 

27 out of 27 students from the April 2010 class attended last night's Job Search Expert Workshop!  This is my favorite workshop because every single student walks away with specific goals to help them define their personal job search.  I also open their eyes on the value of Quality Submittals vs. Quantity of Submittals.  By doing research and spending some extra time, a job seeker can make themselves stand-out above the crowd which is an absolute necessity in today's job market!

Three more MyComputerCareer.com students hired

Posted by Bruce Ackerman on Fri, May 21, 2010

Here's this week's Career Services update from the Raleigh campus showing once again that employment opportunities continue to develop for MyComputerCareer.com students.

Job Orders this Week:  1

Job Orders this Month: 17

Job Offers Accepted this Week:  3 (Zac R., Joseph C. & Larry W.)

ALL just started a 2-3 month project doing software testing for Technisource.  This is just the type of gig that will get some professional IT experience on their resume and open lots of doors for each of them! 

Job Offers Accepted this Month: 11

We are aware of two more graduate students that are working in IT!  I have reached out to both Wayne & Jason to get more details and will be able to include them as Job Offers Accepted next week.....potentially bringing Raleigh placements this month to 13 (and there's still time for more)! This actually outpaces our enrollment numbers suggesting that virtually ALL of our students who want them are finding jobs!
