Westwood College is preparing students for their careers by introducing its new Employment PledgeSM program, available to new students. Eligible students who have not found employment six months after graduation will receive help with their bills from Westwood College for up to six months.
“The Employment Pledge is a first-of-its-kind program that reinforces our commitment to enrolling future graduates and our belief in their ability to launch a new career with a Westwood education,” said Rick Yaconis, Westwood College’s Chief Operating Officer. “We’re so confident that a degree from Westwood will prepare our graduates for their career that we will help graduates with their living expenses for up to six months if they don’t find a job in their field within six months of graduation.”
To be eligible for the Employment Pledge program, students must meet a number of criteria including attaining a minimum cumulative 3.00 GPA and actively work with Westwood’s career services department to attain employment in their field.
