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.

Tanisha Shemwell

My experience here at Ross has been nothing short of amazing! With the small class sizes, flexible hours, friendly staff, and hands-on activities, what more could you ask for? I chose the Dental course because a smile can brighten anyone's day! I've learned that dental is not all about teeth. You will also be taught the anatomy of the human body which is very interesting and my favorite Mod so far. My instructor ensures that we are comfortable with the material before moving on. Who knew that in just 9 short months you would be out working in the community doing what you love. Ross is a great school and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to fulfill their dream in the medical field. Ross offers many different courses like medical assistant, pharmacy tech, veterinarian, dental assistant, medical billing and coding, and much more. Come check us out!

Raeven Barnes

Hello! My name is Raeven Barnes. I am twenty five years old, and I am from Kalamazoo, MI. I made the decision to come to Ross Medical because I was sick. I was basically living in the hospital on and off for about ten years. I saw the opposite side of the medical world while being a patient and fighting for my life. Unfortunately, while being under the care of certain medical professionals, there was little to no empathy. I started to have this desire to help others like me. I have been through the storm in my life and now that I'm healthy I am so happy to be attending Ross. I can't wait to become a Pharmacy Technician and make a difference in someone's life.
