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.

Samantha Collins

I've been in the program for the past five months and my time here at Ross has been awesome. When starting the program, I was nervous about what lie ahead, but after a few weeks, you get into the hang of things. I've made very close friendships in my time here and plan on carrying them outside of graduating. Ross has been one of the best decisions I've made. I'm looking forward to going on my externship and seeing what this career has in store for me.

Tonya Shaffer

The main reason I would recommend Ross College is the atmosphere! All the staff members are caring and helpful! The instructors are knowledgeable in the fields they are teaching. As a result, students are passing and wanting to come to class!

Ross has given me the opportunity to finish what I started years ago. As a mother of three, they gave me options that fit my schedule. Their accelerated Medical Assistant program was just the right fit. Now I have the skills and education I need to jump-start my career.

Denise Stillwell

As an older student returning to the classroom after 20 years, I had concerns that the pace and the computer skills needed would make it hard for me to keep up. But I found the staff was incredibly supportive and patient with students at all levels. The small class created an encouraging, friendly environment to learn.

Meghan Crowley

Ms Bishoff has by far been the best instructor I have ever had for any class. She makes everyone feel very comfortable and welcome, and she always makes class interesting and enjoyable. She has a fantastic personality and really knows the material she is teaching.
