Well folks, believe it or not, Christmas is just a few days away. If you’re anything like us, it feels like we just finished cleaning up the wrapping paper from last year. Thanks for being a part of the Unitek College family this year, and we sincerely hope that this holiday season you get to savor those moments of family, friends, gifts, and peace. To commemorate the season, we’ve put together a list of last minute gift ideas for the Unitek College student in your life. Enjoy the read, and feel free to sing along.
12 Bagged Lunches – You know, for those busy days at their Unitek College externships. They’re getting real world, on-the-job experience, and that type of experience doesn’t always pause long enough to get to a diner.
11 Ink Cartridges – The printer make and model may vary, but printing out resumes burns through ink quickly, and the moment that Unitek College graduates complete their programs, they’ve got a multitude of career possibilities just waiting for their resumes.
10 Pairs of Scrubs – If their training is in Medical Assisting, Dental Assisting, or Vocational Nursing, chances are, they’re going to need more than a few pairs of scrubs for the new career.
9 Personal Favors – Nine may seem like a lot, but when that Unitek College graduate locks down their Information Technology certificate, their return favors are going to be a lot more valuable. Monitor on the fritz? Downloaded a virus? There’s two favors right there. Rack up as big a balance as you can!
8 Shows on DVR – When you’re studying for a brand new career opportunity, things like TV shows move to the background. But one of the biggest perks of a holiday is the opportunity to binge watch everything you missed.
7 Ways To Succeed As A Dental Assistant – Okay, this one isn’t really a gift but a shameless plug for one of our earlier blog posts. Maybe you could frame it?
6 Cans of Soda – When you’re getting your nursing training online (like Unitek College’s RN to BSN degree), it can mean some late hours of studying and online classes. A few ounces of delicious caffeine will almost always come in handy.
5 Gold Rings – This is the only line from the original song we kept, because really, how do you top gold rings? Water fowl and pear trees are pretty easily replaced, but gold still holds up nicely in the 21st century.
4 Job Leads – Locking down that Unitek College graduation certificate is a huge step in the direction of a new career opportunity, but graduates still have a job hunt ahead of them. Word of mouth referrals are some of the most valuable information available, and it’s possible you may have connections or insight that your graduate might not tap into otherwise. Share what you know, it may be just what they need to land that shiny new job.
3 Travel Mugs – It’s a straight shot commute to the Unitek College campuses, but that does mean a hot cup of coffee can’t make the drive a little easier. And we say “three” mugs because, let’s face it, one always gets lost and the other disappears under the passenger seat for three months.
2 Comfortable Shoes – Pharmacy Technician graduates have some promising job prospects ahead of them, and many require standing on their feet for long hours. With that in mind, why not give them something to cushion those heels a little?
1 Big Congratulations – Going back to college takes a lot of guts, determination, sacrifice, and perseverance. Your Unitek College graduate put a lot on the line in their efforts to build a better career, and that always deserves a handshake, a pat on the back, a hug, or all three.
