As a veteran of the U.S. Army looking for employment, I needed specialized training to land a job I wanted. New Horizons offered the training and certification vouchers I needed to obtain my sought after certificates. Less than one year later, I have advanced within the company at a fast pace. I continue to use my training from New Horizons every day as I’m working in a server and workstation environment.
Changing careers can be challenging, but it is nice to know that there is a great resource like New Horizons out there to make sure you’re not alone. While other job seeking resources showed only short term interest and provided limited help, New Horizons continued to introduce me to new team members who assisted with all facets of the new career search. From reviewing my resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn page to assistance with local networking; they provided valuable support and feedback that boosted my confidence and provided real results.
During my time at New Horizons, I was able to complete several IT certifications that have made a great difference in my career. Throughout my experience, the staff were very supportive and provided me the required assistance. They helped me choose the right career path in order to achieve my goals as an IT professional. Once I completed the program, my career advisor team walked me through the entire employment process, and I found a top position in my chosen field. I highly recommend New Horizons to anybody who’s willing to take on the challenge and work hard to move forward as an IT professional.
New Horizons has been instrumental in helping me find employment and completing my certifications. One week before the school ended, I was hired at Oracle as a Senior Support Engineer. I could not have done it without New Horizons! I highly suggest New Horizons for any IT guru who is seeking employment in the real world.
After retirement, I attended New Horizons Learning Center gaining knowledge and certifications in the IT sector and Project Management in less than a year. I just wanted to pass along good information as a Veteran, I appreciate a true Veteran focused education that landed employed doing what I want to do. I suggest this school to anyone transitioning at any level that wants the credentials and skills to feel confident entering the civilian sector and even following the contracts. They offer Career Services and their goal is for you to obtain employment after the program.
My New Horizons experience has been unexpectedly quite extraordinary! From the moment I was contacted by an IT recruiter for New Horizons, to my interaction with my Academic Advisor, to attending and participating in the courses, I have been nothing less than impressed through the entire process. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and approachable. The information that you receive from other students in the classes, who have varying backgrounds, only adds to the learning experience. The staff goes out of their way to assist you in your learning endeavors. Having already attained an IT degree and recently ending my military career, my initial goal was to update my technical background in order to return to the civilian IT workforce. However, the coursework has exposed me to the many new and emerging fields in the IT world. I enthusiastically encourage anyone desiring to pursue an IT career, to seriously look into and consider New Horizons Computer Learning Center.
New Horizons was what I needed to move my career forward. The quality and variety of the classes offered combined with the personal attention I got from the staff and instructors is what helped me to keep motivated and focused on my goals. Without the right certifications,the chances of getting your foot in the door are slim. If you want to move up, it’s a necessity! If you want to learn something new, New Horizons is the way to stop talking and start doing."
