The JVS is committed to helping successful graduates find employment in their career field.  A detailed explanation of the student eligibility requirements for these experiences is included in the student handbook.

The JVS maintains an online job board to help connect students and alumni to local employment opportunities.  The JVS website also hosts links to online resources for  labor market data, as well as statewide and national career information.
