At the same time, since the main focus of the institution is to help students achieve in the work force, the school assists students to fully succeed along their chosen professional path through their career services office. But besides helping students with preparing their resume and developing their interviewing skills, the career services office also hosts a number of annual events to give students a leg-up in the work place.

Every March, the school hosts a career expo, where over 60 employers and companies attend to speak to the students as well as inform them about possible technical employment opportunities.
