AVTEC is committed to assisting students and graduates in the pursuit of training-related employment. The Career Advisor provides assistance to students in the development of employment plans and job search skills throughout training and after graduation.
AVTEC’s history of training Alaskans has resulted in an active and positive relationship with employers throughout the state. Both the Career Advisor and Instructors maintain contacts within business and industry and provide assistance in connecting students with potential employers.
Employers often note that employability skills and effective communication are among the most valuable skills in the workplace. AVTEC provides training of those skills such as verbal and non-verbal communication styles and the role of technology in communication, professionalism, time management, and conflict resolution. Students explore their own communication patterns and begin to recognize and incorporate more effective communication strategies in their day-to-day work activities.
Individual assistance and classes in resume writing, job search and interview skills are provided to all students attending long-term training programs. Work Keys Assessments for the National Career Readiness Certificate are offered and available to students.
The annual AVTEC/Seward Community Job Fair held on campus each spring provides students with the opportunity to learn about opportunities and meet with employers from around the state.
