GRADUATE EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE
Our graduate employment assistance begins prior to graduation. We provide a complete career search handbook, one-on-one advising, resume development, interviewing techniques, and numerous on-campus interview opportunities such as job fairs, the annual career expo, and individual employer interviews. Our employment assistance is available to all MIAT graduates throughout their careers at no additional cost.
STUDENT EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE
Our Career Resource Center continually develops relationships with local employers interested in hiring our students for a variety of full-time or part-time jobs. Job openings are updated frequently and are posted on campus bulletin boards. This is a cooperative environment where students work closely with the career resource center staff. Ultimately it is the responsibility of the student to find and maintain employment, if desired, while attending school.
MIAT is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), an accrediting agency recognized by the US Department of Education.
