Several campuses of The Salter School recently hosted Rick Sears, one of the nation’s leading career-readiness experts. Sears met with students to help them prepare for entering the job market after they complete their career training programs.
Sears is the president and CEO of Career Masters International. He’s known as a pioneer in the field of career readiness and has worked with hundreds of well-known companies and colleges. Sears stated that visiting The Salter School, which specializes in career-focused education, was an exciting and unusual experience for him. “I usually speak at four-year colleges or big corporations,” said Sears. “It’s extremely rare for a career-focused school to bring in someone like me.
“You can tell that the morale of students at Salter is high,” Sears added. “The students recognize that the school is bending over backwards for them by having these kinds of targeted career-readiness sessions. Within the first few minutes of each session, students were fully engaged.”
During the sessions at the Fall River, Malden and New Bedford campuses in Massachusetts, Sears showed students how to write an effective resume. “Students worry when I tell them that the first place the hiring manager’s eyes are going to go is their current title,” said Sears. “Then I reminded the Salter students that by the time they graduate, their most-recent position will be their professional externship.” Salter students were also given a primer on how to prepare for an interview, and how to put their best foot forward during the meeting.
“Rick’s visit brought a great synergy to the school,” said New Bedford Campus Director Foyann Plohr. “He was very welcoming to the students. He also met with the faculty and it was a very productive and positive experience. We hope to continue to work with him in the future.”
“Opportunities are everywhere,” Sears stated. “To stay competitive, sometimes you have to think outside the box.
