Getting to know the employers: As a business school for 50 years, Branford Hall has gotten to know many of the regional employers. Our career services staff reaches out to businesses and organizations who may be looking to hire people with the qualifications and skills that a Branford Hall education provides. Keeping in touch with these potential employers helps us to match our graduates with possible job openings.

Working as a team: Remember, we need your full participation if you want your job search to be the best it can be. It is a team effort, and we need you to work as hard as we do to make it happen. It takes the combined effort of the students and our career services department to conduct a job search that starts you off in your new career.
One of the great benefits of a Branford Hall education is the on-the-job training that you receive while you are still a student. Many of the programs at Branford Hall include an externship or internship where you get to apply what you have learned in the classroom in an actual work setting.
During the placement, qualified personnel will be there by your side as you try out your new skills. Externships and internships are a unique learning experience, and completing your placement successfully is a requirement for graduation.
An added advantage of this on-the-job training is the chance to meet a potential employer. Some of our students have been hired for permanent positions by their externship site. Others find that including the externship experience on their resume gives them an advantage during their job search. And nearly all students agree that the hands-on experience helps them be better prepared for their first job in their new field.
