Get the Most Out of Your Time at BTI with Our Career Services
As a student at Berks Technical Institute, you have a lot of resources available to you. Too many students don’t prepare themselves adequately for the future that they want. We want you to be successful as a student and as a graduate of BTI, which is why we encourage you to learn more about our resources and how our Career Services can help you.
Think About Your Career Now
Right now you’re probably just focused on getting through your program, but it’s always a good idea to think about your future, especially since most of BTI’s programs are relatively short. BTI’s Career Services are one of your most valuable assets as a student, because these services will help you prepare for your career once you graduate.
If you haven’t already, you should attend some of our Career Management Seminars. These seminars focus on important techniques including:
- How to find and get a job
- Interview strategies
- How to dress for an interview
- Help with writing cover letters and resumes.
Even if you are just starting your program at BTI, learning these strategies and putting together a resume and cover letter now can be great practice for when you start applying to jobs.
Applying to jobs can be a lot of work, but it is a lot easier if you’re prepared. However, even after you graduate, we’ll still be here to help with any career tools you might need.
Pay Attention to Your Finances
Sometimes students end up dropping out of school before they complete their education, due to financial troubles. If you are having a hard time with your finances, come talk to one of our Financial Aid Representatives. We can help you figure out how much money you need to complete your program, and then they can help you sort through your options. We can also determine whether you’re eligible for scholarships, grants or if you need to take out a student loan. Financial aid is available for those who qualify.
If you are doing okay financially, but you’ve taken out student loans, you should still schedule an appointment with our Financial Aid Representatives. Student loans must be paid back, and there can be serious consequences if you don’t or if you fall behind on your payments. Setting up a plan now will keep you on track for after your graduate and you need to start making loan payments.
Don’t Wait to Think About Your Future
Whether you’re a brand new student or one who’s about to graduate, BTI’s career services can help you. Don’t wait until after you graduate to start putting together your career portfolio or a resume. Contact us today and set up a meeting with one of our representatives to make sure you are doing everything you can to achieve the future that you want.
