An externship is an invaluable way of learning about the daily work of professionals in your field. It can offer individuals the opportunity to test a career by job shadowing and having hands on in a real medical scenario. It can also be a great way of getting one’s foot in the front door. The Placement Department helps the students to complete the program in externship places according to their field.
Although no guarantee of employment can be made the Job Placement Department is committed to assisting our students and alumni with employability skills, guidance, and resources to find employment in their chosen career and respective specialized field of study.
The Department of Education amends the regulations for Institutional Eligibility Under the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), to establish a process under which an institution applies for approval to offer an educational program that leads to gainful employment in a recognized occupation.
These regulations are effective July 1, 2011. Gainful employment is a legal term that was created to given meaning to various types of training, especially training provided by institutes of higher learning.The government needed a way of tracking the success and purpose of their programs, which helped schools and other training organizations qualify for government funding and clarified what tax categories they belonged to.
Gainful employment is a general term referring to a job, especially a job that a student takes after graduation. In the most basic sense, gainful employment is any type of employment that leads to profit for the employee. Gainful employment is often assumed to be a source of consistent revenue for the worker, with the classical connotations associated with a steady job.
These regulations are effective July 1, 2011. Gainful employment most often refers to jobs that students take after completing internships or training programs. Colleges create these programs with gainful employment as the goal – in other words, the program prepares students for jobs in a particular industry, making it easier for them to find employment than those without the same type of training.
Placement Rate Calculation Methodology
The calculation of our placement rates is about program completers from September 2013 to August 2014. The placement rate is based on graduate students who were placed in a paid job for a reasonable period of time after completion aligned with a majority of the education and training objectives of the program.
The employment classification is verified by the school (and verifiable by third parties such as our Accrediting Commission of Career School and Colleges (ACCSC)) as follow:
- Regular Employment
- Career Advancement (Students that are already employed at the time of graduation can be considered employed when completing the program of study)
We track placement with the graduate or the employer verification.
Graduates in the following categories are excluded from the calculation of placement rates:
- Graduates pursuing further education
- Graduates unavailable to work due to a medical condition
- Graduates incarcerated
- Graduates performing military duties
- Graduates diseased
- Graduates living outside the United States
Who affects the placement rates?
- Graduates employed in unrelated field
- Graduates unemployed
- Graduates unknown (After multiple attempts to communicate with the graduate, using communication by phone, emails, Facebook or other ways, it was impossible to obtain information, therefore we declare it Graduates unknown)
In the calculation of this placement rate are included the total graduates between September 2013 and August 2014 minus exclusions divided by graduates employed in the field.
Placement Rate = Graduate employed in the field / Total graduate with the exclusions
