High expectations and Poor Management
Career Services Advisor (Former Employee) – Lancaster, CA – March 14, 2019
They have high expectations on career services advisors and don’t even provide qualified students to place. I saw more employees go, then actually stay. I was the only advisor on the campus and dealt with all the students in professionally developing them and preparing them to get hired in their field. I would also work with all the employers to set up from 12-20 externs every 5 weeks, while having to place at least 12-15graduates every 5 weeks. While doing the other million things they’ll add on. They stretched me and that didn’t stop me, because I’m up for the challenge. But they never made an effort to assist, they just stood on the side lines and passed down indirect threats from senior management. Asked for additional and always brought up budget and said the campus wasn’t big enough. They seem to sale their programs so highly, but are not even providing the students with the proper training to work in the field. I was there and invested into putting the school on the map in Lancaster. Most employers that I worked with directly, felt that SJVC grads were not ready to work in the field. Maybe that’s because half of the people teaching don’t even have a proper education. They let me go, after being amongst the top performers in all the campuses in many occasions. No explanation when I asked for one. Just a response, that management had already made the decision. Good luck, to them on getting accredited again.
