Career Services

The Career Services Department at Sumner College is committed to your success from the moment you walk through our doors until time you walk across the stage at graduation. Our department is here to provide support in securing employment upon graduation in your chosen career field.

On-campus hiring events, workshops, and guest speakers offer the opportunity for students to find out first-hand what qualities employers look for in a new hire. While we do not and cannot guarantee you a job, we can assure you that we will utilize all available tools, techniques, and relationships to help you achieve your career goals. We believe that our success is only as great as the success of our graduates.

A few of our services:

  • Resume assistance and development
  • Mock interviews
  • On-site hiring events with local employers 
  • Informing you of job openings and networking opportunities in your field of study via email, telephone or other means of communication
  • Follow up post-graduation on your job search and available support from the Department

Our greatest asset in securing meaningful employment for our students stems from the relationships we have built with local employers over the past 40 years. The majority of our graduates secure employment in their field of study through sites utilized for apprenticeship, clinical, and practicum experiences.
