As part of the most recent graduating class for the diesel program, I have been appalled by the lack of consideration from the administrative staff. Job fairs are offered, but hardly any companies in attendance are actually hiring, or at least not hiring for positions that RTI graduates are qualified for. I did not go to RTI so I could install tires or drive trucks but rather to work on them and fix them. I was also taken out of an important class to attend this "required" job fair. Job fairs should be about the potential opportunities for the students, not advertisement for the school. I can't knock them for offering the job fairs though, as some students will at least need the interview and application experience.
The resume class was a positive experience however. The resume teacher offered very good, trade-related advice on creating the best resume style for your field and based on your credentials. They also give students a summary of your best attributes and strengths which I found helpful in "selling my skills" in cover letters and interviews.
