Starting my Career

I am: Starting My Career

Graduating from high school and heading out into the world for the first time is an exciting place to be. You’ve put in the hard work to earn your diploma. You’ve looked at colleges and universities to see what they have to offer. You might have even held a steady part-time job and are ready to expand into a full-time career.

At this point in your life, there’s nothing but opportunity and adventure ahead.

Of course, finding the right career isn’t always easy. The best paying careers aren’t always the most exciting ones, and the most exciting ones might require decades of additional training before you’re finally ready to begin living your life.

At Northwestern College, we believe it’s possible to not only discover your passions—but also to channel those passions exactly where they need to go. Because we emphasize real-world skills right from the start, we cut through those years of unnecessary classes to get you quality, career-focused training that matters.

The Northwestern College Approach

By now, you’ve probably spent enough time looking over college websites that you know exactly what you want from your school. In addition to a quality education that employers recognize, you want:

  • Small class sizes
  • Personalized attention
  • Faculty members with real-world knowledge to share
  • A supportive environment
  • An unforgettable college experience

We strive to provide each and every one of these things – and we do it all with your future in mind. At Northwestern College, we aren’t just in the business of education. We’re in the business of building careers.

What is the Right Career for Me?

Everyone has something to offer the world. It doesn’t matter if you graduated top of your class, or if you spent most of your time figuring out who you are on a more personal level – we know that every student is capable of success.

That’s why we always strive to match students with the field where they’ll have the most impact.  Were you hoping to land a medical career you can build on for a lifetime? Nursing provides opportunities that you can use to see the world and make a real difference in people’s lives. 

Of course, it’s possible you aren’t sure where you’re headed next – and that’s okay, too. We can’t tell you exactly how to find the right career, but our admissions representatives and support staff are always available to provide career tips and guidance when you need it most.

Even before you become a student here, we’re excited to get to know you. Call today to set up a campus tour or to learn more about the scholarship opportunities that exist for high school graduates.
