Sacramento Ultrasound Institute unites 5 Private Postsecondary Schools (Asher College, UNITEK, Blake Austin College and California College of Ayurveda) in and near Sacramento and SETA, to educate students & high-school counselors on careers possible within 18-24 months.

This unique Career College Fair, organized by Sacramento Ultrasound Institute, in collaboration with 5 private post-secondary schools & SETA, will bring together multiple career colleges on SUI's campus. The fair will share more than 15 career programs with the local community, high school guidance counselors and VA representatives from San Juan Unified School District and Sacramento Unified School District. In addition, the Sacramento Employment and Training Agency (SETA), a joint powers agency of the City and County of Sacramento, will provide funding opportunities for qualified students. The aim is to reach out to as many students as possible to provide them with resources that can move them to real jobs in 2 years and positively change the lives of many. The Career College Fair of Private Post Secondary Schools also aims to create strategic alliance with high-school guidance counselors to equip them with ample opportunities, and to help them help their students find the right path.

PARTICIPATING COLLEGES
Sacramento Ultrasound Institute, Asher College, UNITEK, Blake Austin College and California College of Ayurveda are the participating colleges that will do live Q&A with the local community, as well as the local counselors. Recent research by Wonderlic (available upon request) shows that high school guidance counselors have expressed a need to find out more about careers opportunities available via private post-secondary school education. This initiative is designed to close that gap to increase student success and continued education for more students.

THE 3 BIG WHYS OF THE CAREER COLLEGE FAIR

  •     To share 15+ college programs that can result in real jobs in 2 years.
  •     To create strategic partnerships with high schools for increased awareness on career opportunities
  •     To increase student enrollment and create strong workforce.

“It’s about creating partnerships that can create long-lasting change in many lives through the resources that will be shared at this unique fair,” says SUI Development Director Anush Gagua. Below is the list of various career programs, to be presented at the 2016 Career College Fair by Private Post Secondary Schools in and near Sacramento: MRI Degree, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Echocardiography, Dental Assistant Program, IT, Office Administration, Medical Coding and Billing, Ayurvedic Health Counselor, Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist, Ayurvedic Doctor, Nursing Program, Clinical Medical Assisting with Phlebotomy, Cosmetology, Esthetic’s Nail Art, Pro Make-up Artistry and Advanced Therapeutic Massage.
