Meet Northeastern Junior College Renewable Energy

Workforce Challenge

Jason, NJC Director of Renewable Energy, and Jim, NJC Assistant Director of Renewable Energy, knew they had an outstanding program, but were having trouble with their graduates getting jobs. A Wind Energy employer told them in a meeting that their students were well-skilled, but did not interview well.

Workforce Solution

The solution was to make a change in the Associate of Applied Science Degree/Program. In the spring of the sophomore year, the Northeastern Junior College Career Coach and the Workforce Center Labor & Employment Specialist teamed up to do resume workshops and mock interviews with the students. This continues each year.

Outcomes & Benefits

After the first year of doing the workshops, the graduating class had a 100% placement rate. The last three years, this class has had a 100% placement rate.
