Career Advising, Information, Support and Guidance Services

CIBU places a high priority on preparing our students for careers throughout the course of their academic studies. Due to the nature of our students, many already have work experience prior to enrollment and anticipate growth within their chosen fields. For others who require placement assistance, the University offers guidance in re-careering and other occupational information.

Job Placement Assistance
CIBU places a high priority on preparing our students for careers throughout the course of their educational program. Due to the nature of our students, many already have work experience prior to enrollment and anticipate growth within their chosen fields – these students sometimes do not request job placement assistance. For others who require placement assistance, the university offers guidance in re-careering and other occupational information. The University Job Placement Assistance is available to students upon day one of enrollment and can be used well-after the student graduates.

CIBU has a strong record of job placement. Our Dean of Student Affairs works closely with students to help them prepare for each stage of the hiring process/starting his or her own business.  With our Job Placement Assistance, we have placed students at companies such as StyleSeek, PreFab, Taylor Guitars, Sony, etc.

We also have workshops on campus where we offer practical advice on such matters as drafting resumes and preparing for job interviews. In addition, we have hiring managers visit our campus and do on-the-spot interviews with our students who meet the requirements for positions. We also offer a “Career Development” course as an elective for students wanting to work with a faculty advisor on career development and implantation.

The goal of the university’s job placement assistance is to:

  • Educate students about the career development, planning, and implementation process
  • Connect students with employment and experiential learning opportunities
  • Develop partnerships with administrators, faculty, alumni, & employers on projects that enhance career opportunities for CIBU students
