Western Technical College places great importance on assisting graduates in starting their careers because their success is a reflection of the school's success. As a college, our primary purpose is to train people like you to successfully pursue a career in your chosen field. This means not just teaching you theory or techniques, but teaching you how to take your skills and passions beyond the school into a rewarding career.
Consequently, prior to graduating all students attend EP-101 — Employment Preparation — taught by the Career Services Department Staff. Since they are in constant contact with employers, the staff truly knows what these employers are seeking in graduates, and can help students better prepare for interviews.
In EP-101, students are required to demonstrate personal and job-related behavioral skills both orally and in written format, resume construction, employment application, appropriate dress, persuasive interviewing techniques and mannerism. Students are also required to undergo a mock interview with an employer in their field of study that can be videotaped. Because of Western Technical College’s innovative class scheduling, graduations occur every month, which affords our graduates more individual attention. This system also gives Western Technical College graduates an advantage over graduates from schools that have only one or two large graduating classes per year, since jobs open up all the time. Not just in December and June.
We welcome you to visit with one of our Career Service Representatives and let them show you our Graduate Placement Summary. This summary states the percentage of graduates working in their field of study. In addition, our graduates are placed in some of the best and most prestigious companies in El Paso.
