Can I get a job after I graduate from your course? We are always a bit surprised that we get asked this question time and time again! The quick answer to this question is YES! Our dental assistant programs will help you get there. Click Here for Financial Aid Info. However, while we assist with getting your new job – we will not find the job for you.
How successful have our students been at getting a job? VERY! We push our students very hard into getting out there and interviewing for a job within the first month of our course. We help each student prepare professional resumes and cover letters to ensure their confidence is high. Historically, about 1/2 of our students are hired prior to graduation!
This means that those who have been hired during the course are actually getting paid to do their intern/externships because the Dentists want to make sure the student will stay with them after graduation! Nearly one-half of our students are Hired Prior to Graduation! Our graduates have a 80% hire rate for new jobs usually within the first three months.
We do not guarantee that a student will get hired after finishing our dental assistant programs. We give our students the training, knowledge, and skills required to get an entry level job as a Dental Assistant, and we know the need for Dental Assistants are very high throughout the entire United States. However, we have no control over individual personalities and motivation that are key to acquiring a job.
Cindy, the school director, recalls that during her college years, she never asked her college if she would be able to get a job once she finished. She KNEW she would get a job and it would be because of the effort she put into doing so. Cindy says: “My Dad always taught me that if I was looking for an eight hour a day job, then I should spend eight hours a day looking for a job until I found one!”
