Career Services Office
Student Employment Assistance
Student Services has a network of excellent local companies that depend on our students as part-time employees. A job fair is scheduled quarterly for students seeking employment. This event allows students an opportunity for immediate interviews and networking with employers. In addition to the part-time job fair, a monthly job packet is prepared of both on and off campus employment opportunities. Workshops are available on various topics to instruct students on developing a resume, interviewing, and professional skills.
The Art Institutes provide accommodations to qualified students with disabilities. The Office of Disability Support Services assists all qualified students with disabilities in acquiring reasonable and appropriate accommodations and in supporting equal access to services, programs and activities at The Art Institutes.
Students who seek reasonable accommodations should notify the Office of Disability Support Services at 1-855-855-0567 or via email at _TheCenterDSS@dcedh.org of their specific limitations and, if known, their specific requested accommodations. Students will be asked to supply medical documentation of the need for accommodation. Classroom accommodations are not retroactive, but are effective only upon the student sharing approved accommodations with the instructor. Therefore, students are encouraged to request accommodations as early as feasible with The Office of Disability Support Services to allow for time to gather necessary documentation. If you have a concern or complaint in this regard, please contact the Office of Student Conduct and Resolution at firstname.lastname@example.org. Complaints will be handled in accordance with the school’s Internal Grievance Procedure for Complaints of Discrimination and Harassment.
