Thank you to all of the companies that partnered with SOME Center for Employment Training (CET) in 2016! This year we were thrilled to have partnerships with close to 75 companies throughout the DC metro area.
SOME CET firmly believes that the most effective means for job advancement is to bring together employment services with education and training programs so students attain credentials that employers value. Our employer partnerships are critical to helping meet student and employer expectations.
CET’s Career Services Department actively works with employers from all sectors to enhance our students’ learning experience and better equip them to be successful job applicants. Employer partners participate in on-site recruiting and lend their expertise and talent during Career Days and Professional Development Days. They also serve as host sites for our externship program.
SOME was fortunate to expand our partnerships with several employers in 2016. Providence Hospital continues to be a great externship partner, accepting multiple externs at a time and always providing our students with a meaningful experience. Intersolutions, the Smithsonian Institution and Barr Concrete are employer partners who have hired our students upon graduation. Ascensions Psychological & Behavioral Health Services and Health Services for Children (HSC) have also committed to hiring our graduates.
“SOME is really good at understanding exactly what we’re looking for [in potential employees],” said Michael “Max” Grove, owner, Max Insulation, a SOME employer partner.
Additional employer partners are needed for 2017. Interested employers are welcome to schedule an open house visit Mondays through Fridays. For more information, contact SOME’s Placement Coordinator Clennie Murphy at 202.797.8806, ext. 1202 or [email protected]
