When you’re out hunting for a job — especially if you’re changing careers — how do you quickly communicate to a potential employer, “I actually know this stuff”? One rather potent way would be to say, “I just completed a certificate program at SVC on this very topic.” In those few words you’ll be getting across that you’ve developed skills taught to you by some of the industry’s leading pros. You’ll be saying your portfolio and knowledge have been signed off by experts who actually know what they’re talking about. And here’s something that will set you apart from a ton of other job-seekers: You won’t be exaggerating.
Join the program and you’ll also be assigned an expert-level mentor. She’ll help with your course work, get you moving on your portfolio, give you feedback on side projects, and work with you to develop a job-hunting plan.
As a certificate program student you can also take three of SVC’s professional development workshops on a space available basis at no charge.
At the end of the program, you’ll have a portfolio that shows off your skills. And because you’ll have completed a capstone project where you’ll work with an actual client, you can say you know what it’s like to do real-world client interviews and presentations.
To show all that you’ve accomplished, you’ll receive physical and digital certificates of completion you can include in your LinkedIn profile and resume.
