US News Ranks New England Tech for Best Online Degree Programs

New England Institute of Technology Ranks Top-10 in U.S. News & World Report’s 2017 Rankings of Best Online Bachelor’s Programs

In the 2017 U.S. News & World Report rankings of  “Best Online Bachelor’s Programs” released this week, New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) was ranked eighth nationally for the quality and value of its online bachelor’s degree programs.

The Best Online Bachelor’s Programs rankings are based on factors such as graduation rates, indebtedness of new graduates, and academic and career support services offered to students.

U.S. News’ published methodology states: “The vast majority of students enrolled in these ranked programs have earned at least some college credit. They are more likely to be working professionals in their 20s to 40s looking to advance in or change their careers than be first-time college students. Consequently, the factors U.S. News selected to make comparisons between programs were not measures like high school class rank or standardized test scores. Instead, U.S. News chose factors that weigh how these programs are being delivered and their effectiveness at awarding affordable degrees in a reasonable amount of time.”

The methodology document also included how U.S. News assessed schools based on four general categories, stating:

  • Student engagement (40 percent): Quality online bachelor’s degree programs promote participation in courses, allowing students opportunities to readily interact with their instructors and classmates, as is possible in a campus-based setting. In turn, instructors not only are accessible and responsive, but they also are tasked with helping to create an experience rewarding enough that students stay enrolled and complete their degrees in a reasonable amount of time.
  • Faculty credentials and training (20 percent): Strong online programs employ instructors with academic credentials that mirror those of instructors for campus-based programs, and they have the resources to train these instructors to teach distance learners.
  • Student services and technology (20 percent): Programs that incorporate diverse online learning technologies allow greater flexibility for students to take classes from a distance. Outside of classes, strong support structures provide learning assistance, career guidance, and financial aid resources commensurate with quality campus-based programs.
  • Peer reputation (20 percent): A survey of high-ranking academic officials helps account for intangible factors affecting program quality that are not captured by statistics. Also, degrees from programs that are well respected by academics may be held in higher regard among employers.

Take a look at our wide range of online and hybrid degree programs designed for working professionals – and start reaching your potential ahead of schedule.

Top 10 Job Search Strategies for 2017

Career center at New England TechIf you’re thinking of a career move in 2017, the New Year is one of the best times to look for a new position. The job market winds down towards the end of the year and picks up again in the first few months of the new year. Additionally, tying a career goal to a “temporal landmark” such as New Year (“the fresh start effect”) has been proven to be effective in realizing your goals.

Here are 10 things you should be thinking about and doing to increase your chances for success.

  1. List your accomplishments from 2016. What were your biggest projects and biggest triumphs? Also identify challenges, as these can also be accomplishments you weren’t aware of. What was the setback and how did you overcome it? Knowing these will serve you well in updating your resume and on future job interviews.
  1. Start a Kudos File. A Kudos File can consist of emails of praise from customers, brochures or newsletters you created, grateful messages from your boss and colleagues, and notes from your big projects. A Kudos File will provide documented proof and give you anecdotes at your fingertips during job interviews.
  1. Research the industry and specific niche you want to go into, what the position requires, and why you are uniquely qualified. Think about the transferable skills that you can take easily from one position to another and any skills you may have that you don’t currently use in your position.
  1. Focus more on networking than online applications, because people are primarily hired by people they know. Contact former colleagues and classmates. Ask your friends if they’re still in touch with [whomever]. Google the names of the people you want to find. Use your contacts to help set up informational interviews. Also, request informational interviews at companies where you do not have contacts, as you’ll be surprised at how prospective hiring managers will agree to meet with you.
  2. Be aware of your online reputation. Most employers will Google you before asking you in for an interview. If you don’t know what they find, you could be caught off guard. When you’re aware of what employers discover, you can be prepared to address any issues you might have.
  3. Increase your professional visibility and strengthen your personal brand using LinkedIn. It’s your best reputation management vehicle, and where most recruiters will research you. Also, your LinkedIn profile shows up organically in a Google search of your name, so take advantage of the fact that you can control your image, message, and personal brand.
  1. Be able to articulate the exact position you want, and even for which specific companies. If you don’t clearly know, you won’t be able to effectively brand yourself (including your LinkedIn profile) or convert conversations into possible opportunities.
  2. Develop your hit list of target employers. You probably know the best companies in your field that you’d like to work for. If not, do your research up front. Ask friends and colleagues. Also, check in with New England Tech’s Career Services department, as its staff knows of top companies in many fields, and it always has a list of positions available from regional employers.
  1. If you’re interested in more than one specific type of position that utilizes different areas of professional strengths, develop more than one version of your resume. Change the header to highlight your professional strengths and ambitions to match the requisite job skills, and do the same in the description of your responsibilities and accomplishments for your current and previous employers.
  2. Network online. LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook can be good sources for connecting with old colleagues, friends and even making new contacts. Join a local industry chapter of a national organization that is aligned with your target position and where you can meet those who work for your target employers. Then, attend the chapter meetings and volunteer at their special events so you get to meet the people who can help you network.

BONUS Strategy: Upgrade your skills or consider pursuing the next level of your education at a career-focused university such as New England Institute of Technology (www.neit.edu). NEIT offers accelerated degree programs where you can earn your associate degree in as little as 18 months, bachelor’s degree in as little as 3 years, or master’s degree that may apply a credit to your life experiences.

The key to tying all this together is to take action each day. Whether it’s one thing a day or three things a day stay committed to your effort. This will significantly enhance your chances of landing the position you want while shortening the length of your job search process.

NEIT’s Vet Tech Program Ranked Among Top 20 Best in the US

New England Institute of Technology cited as among the top 20 best colleges in the United States.

The rankings were released by The Community for Accredited Online Schools (AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org), a leading higher education information and resource provider. The organization analyzed data from thousands of colleges across the U.S. to determine its list of top schools.

Comparing both online and on-campus programs at schools across the U.S., the online higher education resource provider ranked schools providing the best overall value for Veterinary Technician students.

“Job outlook projections show veterinary technician positions growing much faster than the national average through 2024,” said Doug Jones, CEO and Founder of the Community for Accredited Online Schools. “Schools on these lists are not only providing quality veterinary technician programs but are also making an extra effort to help students land a job after graduation.”

Schools must meet specific baseline requirements to be considered for a spot on the ranking. All institutions must hold regional accreditation and be registered as public or private not-for-profit entities. Schools are also required to provide career services to their students. Once a school’s eligibility is determined, the Community for Accredited Online Schools scores and ranks each based on more than a dozen data points, including graduation rates, student-teacher ratios and financial aid availability, to determine the overall Best Schools in the US.
