Will Ison, a 2008 graduate of the Bristol Campus, recently accepted the Distinguished Community Employer award on behalf of his employer, Select Specialty Hospital. Will, who is the human resource manager for the hospital, has hired several National College graduates and frequently contacts the campus when he has open positions to fill.---

“Each of the students we brought on had a great knowledge base that we felt we could continue to build upon, but their confidence was what really won us over,” said Will. “They were self-assured and seemed to know exactly where they were going.”

Will reinforced the message that National imparts to all of our students and graduates regarding career preparation and the job application/interview process. “You are trying to make a great first impression and employers don’t want fluff, they want facts,” Will explained. “Be prepared! Do a little research on the company and have some questions of your own prepared. Interviews are a two-way street.”

Select Medical operates dozens of facilities nationwide, yet provides high-quality, community-based care. “We are always looking for well-trained individuals, but with the types of patients we have here there must be more than knowledge,” added Will. “Our staff must have a passion for patient care and a winning personality that can bring not only care, but comfort to our critically ill patients.”

Thanks to the great employers like Select Specialty Hospital in Bristol, National graduates have great opportunities to put their knowledge and skills to work.
