January 29, 2014 – Cypress, CA, – On November 7, 2013 Trident University International (Trident) launched the Career Advising and Development Center. The Center will help civilian and military/veteran students and alumni during any stage of their career development. Already over twenty employers have agreed to hire Trident graduates as new employees using the Center.
Trident is a 100% online institution, but the full-service Career Center is designed to provide support for students and alumni who are making important career transitions. Since the Center launched, it has helped four students obtain quality positions. Since its launch, the CADS also released a LinkedIn page for career discussions, advice, support, and interaction.
Career Advising and Development Center Manager Tanya White-Earnest states, “While many people have an expertise in the world of work, most do not know how to effectively brand and market that expertise. The Career Advising and Development Center is ready to assist students and alumni in determining their career direction and developing their personal branding and marketing to enhance their career success.”
While Trident does not guarantee job placement, the services the CADC offers go beyond traditional “job search” efforts. The Center’s services help:
- Educate students and alumni on effective career strategies
- Enhance personal branding and marketing
- Connect students and alumni to employers, mentors and employment opportunities
- Provide career exploration and development assistance
- Offer assessments and coaching to guide career decisions
- Offer career counseling with a nationally certified counselor
- Provide online workshops, training and support
- Offer social media training for the job search
As Trident enters the next enrollment period, it is important to engage students from the beginning of their affiliation with Trident. Ultimately, students are seeking to improve their ability to get a job or to advance in their current position. Involvement with the Career Advising and Development Center early in their educational journey contributes greatly to a student’s success both academically and in terms of gainful employment. Students or Alumni who wish to connect with the Career Advising and Development Center may do so by:
