I am a graduate of NIT National Institute of Technology which is what the schools name was before they had to changed it. I graduated with a 3.86 GPA in Electronics. Although they advertised Job Placement Assistance, I found employment on my own. After visiting the school a year later (I had become friends with a couple instructors) and told them where I was working, they posted my info without my permission on the bulletin board that I was placed by the school. I am currently in a Mid Management position after many years and several positions in the field, I am the person you interview with currently a Maintenance Manager in a Industrial Plant setting. I learned more after leaving the school than they ever taught me.

To be frank the education there was less equivalent than a online correspondent course. I have stayed in touch with instructors and classmates, most have moved on to different fields of work but all would tell you to stay away and use your money to enroll in a accredited school or take online courses from a accredited college. There are plenty of them out there.

While I was there the equipment for practical labs or as the representatives would say "hands on lab" was outdated to the point of being antique. It was the grade of equipment that most employers would throw away, (probably where they obtained most of it through donations). The instructors, with all due respect where no more than graduates of the same school. Some had in the field experience but most just had the ability to speak in public and present materials provided by the school, with little to no field experience.

The government and Sallie Mae will throw money at you to get you to enroll, politicians with education incentives or help with obtaining higher education get votes. Since they can't change the college enrollment prerequisites schools like this are the easiest to push.

Most of the schools rely on salesmen to come to your home or call you daily until you enroll using high pressure sales tactics.

Considering I have worked in the field 15+ years (Graduated in 1992) there is no way I would hire someone from this school without experience unless it was a entry level position. Most of the human resources managers I know, which are many, only laugh when this school is mentioned, the same response I received when I first graduated.

A note to the representatives of the school, don't lower yourself by trying to sell this money mill or try to convince people that it is a reputable institution of higher learning. The truth is entry level and on the job training will educate people more than Everest Institute will accomplish.
