NTC recognizes that you are here for a reason. Whether it is to brush up on technical training, learn a new set of technical skills, or change your career entirely, our programs can get you there.
Career advising begins with your instructors. Beginning the first week of class, ask your instructors about area employers, and with whom you should be networking.

We have Work-study options right here on campus. These jobs are part-time, and can help you gain direct experience in the field you are studying.
Job Search Assistance
Northwest Technical College will help you with job search services for one year following graduation, or until you get your first job in related employment – whichever comes first. Our services include providing resources for career planning and for job searches and notifications of job openings.
The college is not responsible for securing employment. You have the primary responsibility to prepare your employment applications, employment history, and related information. Your academic performance, interview skills, and willingness to accept entry level employment is crucial to landing a job in your field of study.
