Taylor Business Institute recognizes that employment preparation and career advising are integral to its professional skills programs and integrates these services into its training delivery system from the moment its students enroll. Career counseling and placement assistance is available to TBI students and graduates through a variety of interactive and innovative programs. Students participate in an employment preparation course and other activities designed to smooth the transition from education to employment.
Employment Preparation Seminar
This course may be conducted in either a classroom or a workshop environment. It covers job-seeking and job-keeping activities and techniques such as identification of individual skills, meeting employers’ expectations, interview preparation and presentation, resume and portfolio development and identification of potential employment opportunities in business and industry. A formal interview by the Career Services department is a requirement for graduation.
As graduation approaches, students receive job placement counseling through TBI’s Career Services Department, including personalized preparation through individual exit interviews. These exit interviews help identify available job openings in the student’s field of specialization. Students are counseled on the requirements of business and industry and coached on how to conduct themselves appropriately during job interviews. Students will produce a portfolio that includes their resumes and letters of reference. They are offered helpful reference sources to assist them in locating firms and geographic areas offering employment opportunities related to their training.
Students are required to contact the Career Services Department for direction on career opportunities available to them upon successful completion of their program. The College maintains a job board where job openings are posted. Job fairs and industry advisory boards play a key role in job development.
Taylor Business Institute’s Career Services Department assists students who are seeking part-time work in order to defray a part of their expenses while attending school. Full-time employment is not recommended while attending school.
The office of the Career Service department is located on the fifth floor of Taylor Business Institute. Regular hours are 9 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Additional hours may be available by appointment.
