Career Support

Summit Academy connects students with employers searching for fresh talent, but we don’t send you in unprepared. We’ll work with you to build a resumé and a portfolio of work that you can show off with pride. You’ll receive coaching on interviewing strategies from your instructors as well as actionable feedback from industry recruiters and local hiring managers who spend time with you on mock interview days. Our career services team is always connecting job seekers and alumni with fresh opportunities.

 Career Success Coaches

Success may sometimes depends more on who you know than what you know. Through our career coaching program we introduce you to smart, supportive professionals in the Twin Cities community. During your time at Summit you will meet with working professionals (including Summit alum who understand exactly the rigors and rewards of your education).

CAREER FAIRS

The culmination of all this preparation are career fairs, a remarkable opportunity to interview with multiple employers excited and eager to speak with you. Our huge network of employers means there are always companies ready to talk with you about open positions. Not every student lands their first breakthrough connections from a career fair, but every graduate benefits by shaking off their entry-level interviewing butterflies and gaining confidence in speaking about themselves and their portfolios.

 

Our Employer Network

Summit Academy prepares students for careers and we’re working hand-in-hand with industry employers to produce excellent outcomes for our students. Below are just a few of the companies that contribute to student success by providing curriculum feedback, offering apprenticeships, mentoring students and hiring graduates.
