Career Services & Job Placement

The mission of the Career Services and Job Placement Center is to support the institution's academic programs by designing, implementing, and managing services and programs that meet the career and educational development and employment needs of the students.

Career Services

At Northeast Lakeview College we can help you determine your career goals no matter what stage of life you are in. Career planning is an ongoing process and Career Services offers an array of professional services that will assist students with exploring, developing, and setting goals that relate to each student's unique educational and academic plans. Career Services encourages students to start during their first semester with self-assessment and career exploration to declare a major. Career Services will strategically guide you through your career decision making the process by associating majors to careers. Contact us today or speak with a faculty member or an advisor for a referral.
