Everest College - Portland
The Portland campus of Everest College provides students with experienced professionals in their respective fields to instruct the students. Using hands-on training and working in small intimate groups, teachers are able to give students practical advice, get them involved in class discussions, have them participate in innovative classroom projects and ultimately, help them master vital concepts quickly and easily.
Everest's Career Placement Services team helps graduates prepare for a new career through resume assistance, use of job boards and employment search engines, job interview techniques, and career-appropriate wardrobe guidance for both interviewing and upon beginning a new career.
