“The best of the best”, that is the statement used when Zippia.com referred to North Central Kansas Technical College. The website that helps student’s choose their careers has taken notice of NCK Tech’s impressive 94% job placement rate which has landed the college in the number one seat two years in a row.

This statistic is not just from recent graduates, the award was given using the Department of Education’s College Scorecard data and data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), Zippia.com searched for the junior college in each state with the highest listed job placement ratings, looking specifically at employment levels at year 10 after students start. Then the total number of people employed was added to those who were unemployed 10 years after entry, then divided the employed number by the sum.

McLoad Brown, writer for the website noted that “The school tops the list for the second year in a row, offering highly technical coursework and solid opportunities for specialized work post-graduation.” In response to this news Eric Burks, President of NCK Tech stated “We are ecstatic to be recognized as the best in the nation for helping students get started in their careers for the second year in a row!  To achieve this high rate of success over a ten year time span is a testament to the amazing employees at NCK Tech and the great work they do.  It speaks to the quality of the education our students receive, the demand of the fields we train in, and the reputation our programs have earned in the industry.  It also means our students are getting a tremendous return on their investment!”
