Although Orleans cannot guarantee employment for its graduates, every effort is made to assist graduates to secure jobs at no additional cost. The ultimate responsibility for finding employment, however, lies with the graduate.
Job search assistance continues for every graduate as long as necessary and appropriate. Employment Specialists contact all graduating students at periodic intervals after graduation to obtain employment information as required.
