At Thomas College, we believe that it’s not just about what you learn here, but what you do after. That’s why we’re one of the first colleges in the nation to offer a Guaranteed Job Program™, a job placement program that promises our students will graduate career-ready and with the practical skills they need to succeed.
Here, we’ll dive into the details about the Guaranteed Job Program and how it can benefit you.
Our Commitment to Job Placement
We started our Guaranteed Job Program to help ease the transition from college to the workforce for our Thomas College graduates. Figuring out what comes after college can be an overwhelming experience, and our goal was to make it as smooth as possible by giving students the support and resources they need for success.
The Graduate Job Program is available to all who students who meet certain academic and professional criteria, such as:
- Meeting GPA requirements

Through the Program, students receive support and services that prepare them to take the next steps towards their career shortly after graduation. Some of those resources include:

The Program also provides access to a wide network of employers who have partnered with us to hire Thomas College graduates for their companies and organizations, providing ample opportunities to make career connections before and immediately after graduation.
