Advantages of Career Services
For most students, the goal of post-secondary education is employment. But the road to a new career involves several steps. As such, it’s important for students to take full advantage of available campus resources to make the most of their educational experience. Career services is an important campus resource that students should investigate as part of their school visits.
At Professional Skills Institute, we know it takes more than succeeding in the classroom and labs to land a job upon graduation. Our Career Services Department is committed to helping you achieve your goals by providing you with the professional development and job skills you’ll need to successfully enter into a new career after graduation.
All of our programs have professional development skills built right into the curriculum.

While your success is ultimately up to you, the professional skills that you develop while in school will continue to serve you after graduation, supporting your goals throughout your career.

Annual Career Fair
Career fairs are a great time for students and graduates to meet with employers. Professional Skills Institute hosts annual job fairs, which are wonderful opportunities to connect and network with industry professionals.
Networking with employers at job fairs helps students obtain career information and learn about other opportunities that may not be immediately obvious in the job search.
The Career Services Department always recommends attending job fairs since some employers will take resumes throughout the day. It’s also an opportunity for you to make your best in-person impression, which may lead to an interview.
Job fairs are a productive way for you to practice your interview skills and gain exposure on what questions to ask during an interview and what questions you should prepare for.
