Finding A Place

Each year, PLCC works with local employers to provide our students with valuable career placement and internship possibilities. In the 2016-2017 school year, the Placement Office at PLCC was able to assist over 40% of the senior class in some kind of placement, internship, or clinical experience and, upon graduation, 20% of the senior class were employed through the Placement Office in their chosen fields in full-time positions.


The Placement Office has already started the process of placing students to learn and earn during the 2017-2018 school year. At publication, 23 students from various labs had already met the strict academic, attendance, and behavior requirements to qualify for and begin their placement experiences.


As PLCC continues to teach and mold the workforce of tomorrow with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in careers and in future educational pursuits, we welcome new and returning employers with placement opportunities. If you are interested in finding out how a placement opportunity might work for you in your organization, please contact Lisa Tripney, Director of Career Technical Education, at ltripney@plcc.edu.
