We meet with employers who are hiring our students all the time, and the reason they hire our students is because they can bring them into jobs with minimal training and have the students working—whether it’s at internships or jobs—after graduation on day one because our classes are so hands-on. We’re really focused on hands-on learning in the classroom and in the curriculum.
