Job Placement Services

Altrain Medical and Dental Assisting Academy offers Job Placement Assistance. The curriculum includes a three-hour job placement presentation where we discuss how to find employment, where to find a employment, what to wear, what to say, etc. Our job placement services are outlined in detail below. We view job placement as a team effort and expect students to remain in contact with us throughout their job search. We are proud of our 2018-2019 Job Placement Rate of 90% for the Dental Assistant Program.

After completion of the program and passing the CCMA Exam graduates are qualified to work in any medical office as a front or back office assistant including all specialties, such as physician offices, chiropractic offices, hospitals, optometrist, and outpatient care centers. Our students are thoroughly prepared in all aspects of assisting.

Job Placement Services include:

  • Preparation of a Customized Resume – We have over a 100 resume templates and formats to choose from. Each student can pick their own template and we prepare a professional resume for them. The templates are designed to match the student’s personality, some are very professional, others are a little more fun and modern. Resumes are updated throughout their careers at no charge and printed on professional resume paper to make them stand out in interviews.
  • Preparation of Custom Cover Letters – Each student is also provided a custom cover letter to match their resume. The cover letters highlight student’s personality, skills and qualifications. Students are also taught how to customize the letters when applying for jobs and the importance of using key words.
  • On the Job Training – Externship Opportunities – Altrain Medical and Dental Assisting Academy arranges externships for students, successful completion of an externship is a requirement of the Medical Assisting Program. Benefits of the externship include gaining real world experience, looks excellent on a resume and may lead into a job or networking opportunity.
  • Interview Tips and Techniques – During the presentation we thoroughly discuss the interview process and how to land your first job. We discuss potential interview questions and how to answer them. We teach students how to do research on medical offices and avoid common mistakes. Additionally, all students are provided the opportunity to participate in mock interviews with our staff and instructors.
  • Professional Head Shots – Each student is provided a professional head shot. These photos can be used for social media profiles including Linkedin and Indeed. They can also be put on students resumes and sent along with job applications.
  • Direct Placement Leads – When an office contacts us, we contact our students with the details and send their resumes directly to the medical office. We have had much success with direct placement leads over the past 15 years for the Dental Assistant Program and anticipate the Medical Assisting Program will be the same.

We will make every effort to place you in a medical position, however, this is not offered as an inducement and no guarantee or representation of placement or employment is made or implied.

Employment Outlook

Employment of medical assistants is projected to grow 23 percent from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations. The growth of the aging baby-boom population will continue to increase demand for preventive medical services, which are often provided by physicians. As a result, physicians will hire more assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing the physicians to see more patients.

An increasing number of group practices, clinics, and other healthcare facilities will also need support workers, particularly medical assistants, to complete both administrative and clinical duties. Medical assistants work mostly in primary care, a steadily growing sector of the healthcare industry.

About Us

If you want a great hands on, small class size, educators willing to help you succeed and know your name you have the right place. Look no further!! I walked into Altrain only because I heard the ad on the radio. Instantly, I felt like this was the place to get my career path on the right track. My first person I ran into sat down and told me everything I would need to do to start school all the way to the end and how they would help place me for a job.

Cyndi

I highly recommend Altrain dental assisting academy, it is a great school and only a short 13 weeks. I took night classes and loved the amount of time that we actually got practice everything hands on. Everyone at the school is very nice and helpful.

Jesus

I absolutely love Altrain! I’m confident the instructors and small class sizes will make for an easy 13 weeks! The hands on learning really helps things stick in my memory. I’m so excited to see where my future will go after graduation. Thanks Altrain!

If you are lost on what to do for your career or what school to attend, I 100% recommend you choose Altrain! The staff is amazing & teach you everything you need to know in order to be successful in this job field. I already had 3 job offers only a week after graduation! They are amazing!
Emma
I had visited and toured a couple other dental assistant schools besides Altrain and none of them compared to Altrain. The facility is definitely made to look like a dental office 100% and with a lot of space to work. If you want somewhere reliable and with friendly staff this is the place for you. In 13 weeks you will get the right amount of information to be successful in your dental field career! Totally recommended!
Sergio
I too did a lot of research on Dental Assisting schools before I chose Altrain. For starters they were the ONLY school that actually offers everything that you need to be successful in your career. X-ray, Coronal Polish, CPR and Dentrix (front office too)! They have more than double the amount of days and hours of all the other short programs. That’s why everyone passes the state exams. The other schools say they do it too but there is no way they can find the time in 1 or 2 days a week. The school is so clean and looks just like a dental office. And when Altrain says the offer job placement, they mean it!!! My resume and cover letter are fantastic! Tannis sent me on 4 job leads before graduation and I had a job a week after I finished the program! When it comes to Dental Assisting this is the ONLY school to even consider!!!!
