Career Guidance involves students meeting with a counselor to discuss their career choice issues such as selecting the proper program, changing to a different program, exploring career related options, pursuit of employment or internship, etc. Career Guidance occasionally requires multiple sessions (three or four), where the counselor will work with you in assessing interest, skills, values, and other consideration affecting career decisions making.
Appointments are preferred and can be schedule by phone or email. Walk-ins for quick questions or resume critique are always welcomed.
These workshops focus on supporting graduate students who are conducting research and preparing for graduation and beginning the job search upon graduating. Collaborating with our resource library, we offer workshops that will prepare you to write proper resumes and cover letters, dressing for an interview, job search strategies, and setting up mock interviews. Additional one-on-one workshops guide students in applying for right position in their field, presenting a portfolio their work, optimizing their online presence, and other topics important for successful careers in their fields.
On occasion, FBA will invite a guest speaker to join a class and speak on behalf of their experience in the field or a specific topic. Guest speakers can be a great tool for the improvement of a class, because it offers a new perspective and variety in the way the industry is perceived, while providing important specific subjects that are often omitted from a regular class or to enhance a curriculum subject from that particular program. That in turn brings a better learning experience to the students, the teacher and even the guest speaker.
Because of the way this technique is used, a better one-on-one approach is achieved, as well as a better understanding of a topic that otherwise would be very dull or unclear. Students have a chance to learn about said specific topic in a way that helps them get fully involved in the class and actively engage in a more approachable way of teaching.
Florida Barber Academy holds on site job fairs to provide graduate candidates with an opportunity to learn about career opportunities in person. Since FBA values the time of all of our applicants and since we are fortunate to have wonderful graduates and local business owners come out to our onsite job fairs, only those students who are currently enrolled in a Florida Barber Academy program or have graduated in the same calendar year as the Job Fair are invited to attend. RSVPs will be required. Check our Calendar of events to see when the next job fair will be held.
