The number one question Drake Medox College advisors are asked is “will I get a job after graduation?”

We understand that although students may come to us for industry leading training and education, what they really want and expect is a good job after they achieve their diploma.

So, why are Drake Medox Health Care Assistant grads able to secure jobs in the field at a consistent rate of 97%?

  • Students benefit from the strong reputation among healthcare employers in BC, which has been built over 45 plus years of experience as both an employer and educator.
  • Students are able to establish strong bonds and a professional network during their studies, which assists them in finding jobs.
  • Drake Medox is committed to supporting and preparing students post-graduation for a successful job search.  Job Postings are shared regularly through social media, email and on our website and on-campus Job Boards.

Demand for Health Care Assistants continues to grow as BC’s population is aging.  In a recent article prepared by the BC Care Provider’s Association  it is stated that “despite the strong anticipated growth, the number of qualified healthcare workers entering the workforce each year is not sufficient to meet the increasing demand for continuing care services.”

With this information, it is no wonder we are able to say with a high degree of certainty that jobs are plentiful, and Drake Medox HCA grads do get jobs after graduation!

“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.”
