  • SUCCESS STORIES

    ACE Employment Services matches graduates from all ACE programs with the best suited employers and positions in a wide variety of industries. Here are just a few examples.

    Ten students studying English as a Second Language were referred to ACE Employment Services to receive job readiness and employment assistance. We were able to accommodate the students in small groups so they could learn together and support one another. They all received resume writing and interviewing assistance and are on their way to gaining employment with assistance from our office.
    Dariel A. was studying English as a Second Language when he was referred to ACE Employment Services. He was looking for a new part time job because he was tired of working late nights at a restaurant. After receiving an employment consultation as well as resume and interviewing assistance, our team went to work identifying jobs that met Dariel’s needs. He was referred to several employers and worked patiently with the team over several weeks. Dariel did well in an interview for a community outreach position and soon began working as a community outreach specialist, a part time job that afforded him the schedule flexibility that he needed.
    Through its collaboration with the EMT Program, ACE Employment Services hosts several employer on-site and large scale job fairs, recently leading to 90% placement rate for the last EMT cohort.

    Job placement is a process that requires you to work with our employment team and be responsive to opportunities that are presented. Each candidate has different needs and availability in the kind of work he/she is looking for, and there is no definitive timeframe in which we can guarantee placement. ACE Employment Services has connected some students to jobs within days while other placements have taken months.
