Employer Partner Feedback
Dawn has been a pleasure to work with. She is diligent in her efforts to give MicroTrain’s students the best opportunities to connect and network with various companies and players in the job market. The curriculums and certification programs are in line with today’s current IT needs. It’s good to see that they evolve with what employers are most seeking out there. I would recommend to any employer that hires skilled IT workers that they look into MicroTrain’s career services department as a potential source of candidates. The business of hiring can be quite costly, and Dawn and her staff provide a free service to outside companies. This value-add for MicroTrain’s students aligns with their mission in both training and job assistance to set up a win/win scenario for all involved.
PMP Certification Training, Lombard, 2008
I was laid off for many months and not really getting many callbacks for my resume and no job offers. After I put the letters PMP on it, not only did I see an increase in quantity, but also quality of interviews. I had been spinning my wheels for 5 months, and after the PMP went on, I had 2 job offers in 6 weeks. It really was the "golden ticket"
Benefit of Career Services
The biggest benefit of my time at Microtrain during this time was meeting Dawn Mondo. I attended a job fair held at the Lombard location but not a lot came of it. I accepted a position with from an outside company as a contractor, only to have the offer fall apart. I contacted Dawn and explained that the new position I had fallen through and that I had exhausted my unemployment benefits. Dawn stepped up and started calling her contacts and almost immediately found a new contractor. I was offered a position which resulted in the job where I’m working. This was a huge benefit. I cannot describe the help that career service has been to me. I had cast myself into an academic mold by staying at my former employer for far too long a period. I believe that when the contract position that I am working at ends I will be viewed in a new light. I have taken a number of classes through Microtrain and I like their hands-on approach. The feature of the employment services just adds to the benefit. If someone asks me to recommend a training center, Microtrain is always at the top of my list.
The instructor [Al Khalfan] was very knowledgeable in the field. He presented the materials and concepts with a professional touch. He also frequently adds humor to his teachings, which made it easier for me to understand. The support staff was all nice, gentle, caring, and very helpful. The materials, rooms and amenities were excellent and exceeded expected standards.
