How We Help Get You Hired

We know your goal is to get a great IT job. That's why career services are an integral component of our program.

In addition to your technical training, we know there are other skills that need to be developed to help you find the right job. Centriq's career services team provides our students with seminars, workshops and other services throughout your training that prepare you for your job search, and help you land your new IT job.

A man who got a job in IT.

I just wanted to let you know I received a job with Umbrella Managed Systems! I want to thank you for the class you taught for us on how to create resumes and interview techniques. It really helped out a lot in the process of finding a job. The training for looking for jobs and how to approach interviews is a huge help and I believe that is what led to me receiving this job offer."

HOW WE FIND JOB OPENINGS

When our Career Services team isn’t prepping you for your job search, they are working hard to find available IT job openings in your area.

Where do they find entry-level IT job openings?

Our Employer Network
• Attending Career Fairs to identify employers with IT openings
• Attending Networking Events
• Monitoring all major Job Posting Boards
• Monitoring LinkedIn Job Postings
• Connecting with IT Staffing firms
• Referrals from Current Students
• Referrals from Graduates about Openings at their Employer
• Cold Calls into area Companies
• Referrals from employers who’ve hired our grads
• New Graduate Alerts in our Employer Network Newsletter
• Employer Network Invitations to Attend our Career Fairs
• Employer Network Invitations to Attend Student Project Presentations
• Attending IT User Groups – many of which are held at Centriq's campus

When we find the job openings, we send them directly to you. We post them on our exclusive Centriq job board. We invite the Employers to our Centriq-only job fair. We host networking and hiring events, plus we offer to set up onsite interviews. In short, we make sure you know about every job opening, and give you the tools to land the position.
