How Graduates of trade schools in Corpus Christi Texas Can See Career Success

“Choose a career you love and you will never work another day in your life.”—Proverb By Michelle Casto When it comes to modern life, one thing we can all count on is change. With the advent of technology, telecommuting, and E-commerce, how work is performed is in a state of reinvention.  One thing that makes trade schools in corpus christi texas unique is the diversity of its students.  You will find brand new high school graduates studying along-side retired military, or others who are ready to “do something new and different.” The line between one’s personal and professional life has become even more blurred.

Since the modern world of work is rapidly changing to keep up with the demands of our fast-paced lives and lifestyles, here are some of the some of the many advantages of 21st century careers: * More career opportunities for everyone (no matter your background or age). *The Medical field is one of the fastest growing career fields, with massive growth expected over the next decade * More flexibility in how and where work is performed, i.e. working from home or telecommuting. * Increased opportunity to develop other skills by working in various industries and environments. How can you successfully navigate through the turbulent times of change and career uncertainty? By developing resiliency, exercising proactivity, creating excellent self-marketing tools, and keeping your skills up-to-date, which are some of the key concepts taught in our Job/Career Readiness course that all our students enroll in right before they go on their exciting externship. Here are three skills you can commit to that will ensure your career success:

  1. Develop resiliency (the ability to bounce back). Having the right attitude about career change is imperative to your ability to bounce back from setbacks, sudden changes, and twists and turns along your career path. 2. Take a proactive approach to your career development Stay on the lookout for new ways to apply your knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA’s) in the new economy.

Staying involved in professional associations, and continuous networking are excellent ways to connect with other like-minded professionals.
  2. Create first-rate marketing materials Always keep your resume current. You never know when you are going to want to share it with someone or pass it along. Become internet savvy and apply for job listings online, Especially in Corpus Christi.

“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.”

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.”
