Prepare for Your Future

The Career Services team at Ross is committed to helping you start off your career successfully. With the guidance and expertise of friendly, knowledgeable team members always willing to provide assistance, you’ll have access to resources that will give you the confidence to achieve your career goals.

Ross Career Services provides you with tools and resources to help you prepare for job hunting, interviewing, and landing the job.

Mock Interviews

Career Services will arrange for local employers to come to campus and hold practice interviews with students. Students will learn what kinds of questions to be prepared for and will get acquainted with the healthcare job interviewing process.

Externship Assignment

Developing partnerships with local employers who are willing to provide an environment in which students can practice the skills they’ve learned, Career Services will try to match you to a site based on your strengths and preferences.

Graduate Workshops

Graduate Workshops are monthly sessions designed to help graduates develop skills to achieve successful employment. Workshop topics include The Power of References, Applying with Large Hospital Systems, Making Your Resume “Your Own,” and more.

Externship Experience

As we work together through challenging times we realize many of you may have questions, not only about current classes, but as you try to plan ahead for things like externship or future employment. Our Career Services team is here to help. Even though you may not be embarking on your externship for several weeks, we thought it might be helpful to give you an idea of what to expect when that time comes. This environment continues to change, and we will continue to make adjustments in response to those changes.

At the end of your Junior MOD (5th MOD, or 4th MOD for MIBOA students) you will receive an invitation from Career Services to attend a virtual Junior Meeting in Canvas. The meeting will last approximately an hour and will provide you with important information about the Externship assignment. It will review the requirements for completion, student responsibilities, and guidelines to help ensure a successful externship experience.

As you near the end of your Senior MOD you will work with your Career Services Representative to try to identify an externship site to complete the on-site portion of your training. Externship site availability is limited, but our Career Service team is constantly communicating with sites to identify those that can host externs and will work toward securing a site as the first course of action. In the event a site cannot be secured in the required timeframe your Campus Director will work with you to process a leave of absence. This will allow us to pause your externship until you are able to return and complete. With that in mind, when you are assigned an externship site it is very important that you show up as scheduled and demonstrate your training and professionalism to retain the site and complete your required hours for graduation.

Externship Seminar is a mandatory part of your externship assignment. All active externs will be invited to attend each week. Canvas titles each seminar item as an “assignment”, but it could be a video, document review, or survey. The completion of all seminar items is equivalent to 2 hours attendance, although the average time to complete has been considerably less. You will only receive attendance for the time/assignments completed so please complete all that are due.

The Career Service team is here to support you throughout this journey and beyond as you begin your job search. They are identifying job leads for employers that are currently hiring and in need of medical support staff. They will continue to assist you with mock interviews, coaching, resume preparation and placement. Your success is important to us and we are here to help.

Taniquwa Stuart

Beginning a new journey here at Ross Medical Educational Center has been one of my best accomplishments. Looking back from day one with all the nervousness and indecisiveness, I am proud to say I came, I saw, and I conquered. I would like to give a thanks to all my fellow classmates and the entire staff as I move forward in my endeavors.

Haley Miller

I came to Ross to further my education for a reliable career, and I've gained much more than that. My instructors have helped me become much more than I thought was possible.

Haley Miller Graduate Medical Assistant student at Kentwood, MI campus Graduation: May 22, 2019
Amanda Frydrych

The reason I chose to go to Ross is because I wanted to learn with a hands-on approach and in a comfortable environment. Having the option to go to night class was perfect for my busy schedule. The instructors were always there to help me if I had any problems, in or out of class. Everyone was always friendly and willing to help. I felt very confident going for my externship because what you learn in class transfers really well out in the field. Thanks to Ross, I no longer feel like I'm stuck in a job I don't like, but rather, I am happy in a career.

Ashley Feliciano

The reasons I love Ross are they have flexible hours and they make you feel welcome. Our Director, Mr. B, is really supportive and really cares about the students and staff. My instructor, Mrs. Michelle, is amazing. She brings her real life experiences in her dental office and teaches us beyond a book. She shows us the skills we need and I feel like I'm ready to go out and succeed. She has become my mentor. I will always recommend Ross.
