Tackling Post-Graduation Responsibilities One Task at a Time

Job Search Tips

Graduation of any sort is a huge milestone in your life. It marks the completion of a program or having your hard work pay off with a degree and that should be celebrated. From here, though a lot of realities may be setting in and it can be tricky to navigate a lot of these potentially new responsibilities, but Houston Back on Track is here to help you navigate the process of starting a career.

How it Works

Our program starts with taking a skills assessment and meeting with a career coach. We have several educational partners and resources we can help partner with you on preparing for your job search through interview prep, certifications and career coaching. We even have employer partners that can help us in placement if you are interested in one of our set career paths.

The decision of which path you want to take is one of the most important ones and our coaches can help you with that.
