The Landing School provides career counseling and career portfolio development services to all current students. The school maintains close communication with marine companies throughout the United States and abroad, and companies regularly post job openings on the alumni job page.
Students meet individually with the career counselor in the fall to express job preferences and locations, and as openings develop, students are directed to the appropriate contacts at the
companies. The School maintains an Employment Resource Guide and provides it to students several times during the year. We also provide students with a Career Guide that outlines the variety of jobs some of our past students have pursued. Students also attend seminars during the year on the career placement process, resume preparation, job interview preparation and other topics that will aid them in securing employment upon graduation.

The School’s alumni report back great success in their careers.
The Landing School does not guarantee employment for graduates but does provide information about open positions in the marine industry around the world to our alumni through regular newsletters, a website and informal correspondence.
