Career readiness is built in to the curriculum for all programs so that students are well prepared for employment after graduation. In addition to being trained in their chosen field, STI students receive training in job search skills as well. Career development preparation offers a variety of topics that give students the information necessary to enter the work force. Areas of focus include one-on-one training sessions, cover letter and resume writing, mock interviews and completing job applications. For some of the programs, such as Cosmetology, Culinary Arts and Metal Fabrication, students create a portfolio which highlights their skills, training and work samples.
STI works in cooperation with local employers, job placement services and Advisory Boards to assist students in securing employment upon graduation. STI is committed to making every reasonable effort to prepare students to secure employment.
