Our Job Guarantee

We believe in our graduates. In fact, we know that, if you follow the guidance of your mentors and instructors, and meet the criteria of the Job Guarantee Program, at commencement you will throw your cap in the air and start your career.

The Sierra Nevada College of Entrepreneurial Leadership Job Guarantee: You will have a job offer in a field that’s appropriate for your major before you graduate.

What exactly do I get from this job guarantee?

If, by some quirk of fate, you find yourself unemployed upon graduation with no prospect waiting, don’t despair. We will take you back, for free, for a full semester of coursework to add to your skillset in a job-ready way.

How do I qualify for the job guarantee program?

The requirements are simple:

How does it work if I don’t have a job at graduation?

If you don’t immediately find work upon graduation, you will work with your adviser and a mentor to determine courses that will enhance your prospects and your current degree. You’ll work directly with Career Services to work on presentation and job search skills. You’ll do all this on our dime because we know that our graduates are employable.
