Our Placement Program
New Horizons understands how competitive the job market is today, that is why our placement staff is always working with one goal in mind – to get you hired in the job you want as quickly as possible. For example, as much as 60% of IT jobs never make it to internet job boards; only people connected to the company or hiring manager hear about these job opportunities. That is why New Horizons placement staff develops relationships with the top businesses in our area. They find and track the hiring needs of these organizations and offer our placement services at no charge – so they love to hear from us. Once you have passed a pre-determined number of exams, the placement person assigned to you will review your resume and provide professional advice on how to get noticed. They will also arrange interviews and coach you on techniques that will get you hired.
