This course requires the student to prepare a cover letter and resume. Class discussions include setting career goals, proper business attire, how to conduct a job search and job interviewing techniques.
USC has maintained an excellent placement record for many years. According to a survey of graduates, the placement record for 2009-2010 was 92%. This figure represents students from the total graduating class who are working or furthering their education.
The College’s interest in its students does not end as graduation draws near. USC maintains an active Placement Service which assists students in finding jobs and also provides assistance to graduates who desire to further their education. Prior to graduation students participate in a comprehensive employment seminar course that covers topics such as personal career goals, community resources, appropriate business attire, resume preparation, effective interview techniques and more.
USC graduates develop the skills and gain the confidence needed to achieve success in the business world. An excellent reputation in the business community has earned USC graduates the respect of employers in industry, education, healthcare, banking, law and all facets of business. One of USC’s most valuable assets is the individualized placement service provided to every student and graduate requesting its service.
