Increasing Your Likelihood of Success Even with great marks and a stellar internship, your career is not going to come to you – you have to grab it. To increase your chances of employment success, here are some tips to incorporate into your job hunting strategy:

  2. Register at SCI connect: This online portal helps match your skills with the businesses that need them.

  3. Network network network: Fellow students, peers, instructors, or alumni – you never know where a conversation can go. But make sure you know when to press pause on your networking efforts – people do not want to be seen only as a resource.

  4. Apply!: The more applications you submit, the more responses you can get.

  5. Be open: You never know where an opportunity may be lurking. Remember that there are no right or wrong Southern Careers Institute jobs, only different experiences that can take you in amazing directions.

What SCI Students Are Saying

Raquel S.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”


Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
