EMPLOYER TESTIMONIAL

We highly regard Community Support Work related schooling/credentials when making hiring decisions. The schooling indicates to us that applicants have some systematic training in the field and are passionate about quality care; this means they are likely to be high performers and stay longer because they fully understand what the job involves. Retention is a huge consideration, those that are likely to stay longer will always be highly sought after as it takes time to build working relationships and relationships with person served.

As you probably are aware by now, most of my recent hires are from your college, and I am very happy with the performance and work ethics of your graduates. They are very responsive, caring and have a solid knowledge by the time they enter the workforce.

Kudos to you and to your organization.

With much respect,

Success Story

Drake Medox College has provided me with the learning experience that I need to start my career as a successful Activity Worker at a long-term senior facility. I have achieved my goal of changing my career from a Care Aide to an Activity Worker, as I was able to find a full-time job one month after I graduated from the Drake Medox College. I would highly recommend the Activity Assistant Diploma program to anyone who work in the health care industry.
