With top quality education offered at community colleges, and with industry-based input toward enhancing the curriculum, students are better prepared to enter the workforce in RHT. Students can opt to enroll in short-term certificate programs or work with counselors to discuss transferring to a 4-year university to complete a bachelor’s degree program.
The Advisory Board and DSN are collaborating with industry partners to create “Learn and Earn” programs that may translate into a paid or non-paid internship or compensated job opportunity to enter the RHT industry. Colleges are partnering with employers to give students a real-world, hands-on job training with their company while still earning their certificate or degree. Read the article published in Time magazine about Learn & Earn programs and continue to visit this page for updates from our industry partners.
If you are currently in an RHT job position and are looking to advance toward a supervisory or management role, you can inquire with our colleges and/or contract education programs to learn more about stackable certificates. Life-long learning is fostered on our campuses where students can range in age from 16 to 76!
Each community college offers local job/career fairs onsite at their campus for students. The RHT project will bring a career fair to the regional level so that both employers and students can be exposed to the growing number of job opportunities available. If you are interested in participating as a student and would like to receive alerts about the event, please be sure to get on our database and TEXT us. If you are an employer and would like to advertise your position, give us a call and we’ll begin announcing/posting your listings on our newsletters, website, facebook, linkedin, etc.
We would like to introduce you to the Foundation for California Community Colleges. The Foundation can provide our industry partners with support in Human Resources be it background checks, workers comp, liability insurance, etc. to help you hire our students more easily and speedily delivering a smooth procedure to do so.
