Participation and involvement from both student & staff is a result you can expect from our Student Services Department. We work to equip our students for every possible scenario in the work-field. All these will result in our students being placed in the industry of their choice.
FBA will effectively serve our students by providing workshops throughout the year in order to prepare them with proper skills and education needed to be successful. Examples include: writing professional resumes, building their portfolio, searching for jobs, utilizing social media in a professional manner, as well as one-on-one mock interviews. We will have shop/salon owners come in and speak with students, as well. Career days will also be held throughout the year, giving students the opportunity to network with shop/salon owners and have on-site interviews.
Goals are measured by utilizing an "Exit Graduate Survey", in which we will turn data gathered from our staff and hold annual meetings about feedback given from students. This allows FBA to review action that were effective and which were not meeting the student's expectations. With the help of the student "Exit Graduate Survey", FBA can implement updated plan of actions.
Even after graduation, our wish is that our students are feel part of the FBA Family. This is the impact we want to impress upon them. We are always in communication with local shops and salons, creating a network and building relationships. With our community outreach, we are to provide clothing, hair products, and beauty equipment at a discounted rate for students and alumni at FBA. With our community involvement, we help assure the brightest future for our graduates.
