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.
For starters, you’ll be assigned an expert-level mentor you’ll meet with twice each quarter. She’ll help with course work, get you moving on your portfolio, and work with you to develop a job-hunting plan.
As a certificate program student you can also take one of SVC’s professional development workshops each quarter at no charge.
At the end of the program, you’ll have a portfolio that shows off your skills, and you'll have completed a capstone project where you’ll work with an actual client so you can get a taste of what it’s like to do real-world client interviews and presentations. To show your accomplishments, you’ll receive physical and digital certificates of completion you can include in your LinkedIn profile and resume.
