Celebrate Your Career Development at Technical Schools in Corpus Christi TX

“Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.” —Malcolm Forbes Did you know that November is National Career Development Month? This month serves as a tribute to the importance of finding work that you enjoy doing. If you have been on campus for any time, you will know that the staff and instructors at Southern Careers Institute are dedicated to the career advancement of our students.  

As you know  “Better training, Better Careers” is our motto –and for good reason. We do everything we can to support our students through the challenges of any other technical schools in Corpus Christi TX face: getting a good education so they can create a bright new future for themselves. The concept of “career development” hasn’t always existed. In 1908, Frank Parsons established the first vocational guidance clinic and outlined the basic principals of vocational guidance, cementing him as the founding father of vocational psychology. Since then, millions of people have performed millions of jobs.  Obviously, our concept of work has changed quite a bit and continues to evolve at an accelerated rate, with the advent of the internet, and especially web 2.0 and 3.0 platforms. It is now a common idea that not only work CAN be fun, it IS SUPPOSED to be FUN.  In fact, when you find a career you love, it doesn’t feel like work!  And if you live by one of our philosophies of “the key to lifelong earning is lifelong learning” you will fit right in one of our career-oriented certification programs. For me, my own career started out working in the higher educational setting, and the rest, they say, is history.

One of my favorite questions to ask my students is how they got into what they are doing. So why not leave a comment on how you came to choose the career path you chose. What do you most enjoy about it? How has focusing on your education and career bettered your life? So hats off to you, for the work you do now, and the work you will do in the future. Be sure to give yourself a big pat on the back for a job well done and do something nice to reward yourself, especially those who have and will make it to completion. May you be successful in your chosen career, Michelle L. Casto Job/Career Readiness Instructor

What SCI Students Are Saying

Enrique H.

"I recently achieved my dream of becoming a CDL driver, passing my CDL exams at our local DMV in Edinburg. Mr. Gonzalez was such a great instructor, even though it was raining I passed with flying colors!”


Juan L.
Commercial Motor Vehicle Operator

“I made a complete career change when I started my training at Southern Careers Institute. I needed a stable career to continue providing for my growing family. SCI provided me with the medical terminology and know how that I needed to understand and acquire a career in the medical field. SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”


Denise S.
Medical Assistant

“I am extremely grateful for the assistance I received from SCI’s Career Services team. I enjoy where I work and what I do. SCI has helped me succeed in life by getting me the necessary education and by making me a stronger and more confident person.”


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.”


Bonnie M
Medical Assistant

“I am now a certified Lab Tech. SCI helped me get an externship, and I came out with a job. After my little sister had cancer, I knew I wanted a career in the medical field that allowed me to help others. I am happy about what I do.”
