How Career Services at a Vocational School Can Help You Land Your Dream Job

Studying your course material alone will be insufficient to prepare you for a career. You also need to know how to find your perfect job, apply, and then ace the interview. At a vocational school, in addition to classroom lectures and practical experience, you’ll have access to career services that ensure you’re ready to find your dream job when you graduate.  

Connections with Employers

One of the great things about studying at a vocational school is that all students will be applying to jobs in a few select fields after graduation. This allows the school to make connections with employers and receive leads on exciting jobs.  

Career Fairs

You can also find out about potential jobs through career fairs — your school may even hold its own events on campus. In addition to in-house events, staff will always have information about upcoming job fairs near you.  

Resume Writing Support

Even if you initially approach employers at a job fair, you’ll still need to introduce yourself formally, which requires a professional resume. The career services at your school will teach you to write and format a resume in a way that presents your skills and experience most favorably for the types of jobs you are applying to.  

Access to Resources

To apply for a job, you may need access to a computer, the Internet, a printer, and other technology. The top vocational schools have all these resources and more on campus in dedicated IT centers.  

Interview Tips

Through job readiness training, you’ll learn how to make the best impression at an interview. Faculty at your vocational school will provide you with advice specifically for your chosen career, including how to answer probable questions, as well as general tips related to body language, clothing, punctuality, and more.  

Tutoring Services

For many jobs, applicants need a wide skill set, expanding beyond the critical knowledge and abilities you’ll acquire during your program. Many schools offer additional services to help you improve crucial skills, such as writing and using computer software.   Only the best vocational schools offer all of the above services to students and graduates. Make the most of your education by picking a vocational school that has a strong career services department. Your future is in your hands, and you deserve to go to the school that will help you in the ways you need.

“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.”

“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
