Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

We had attended BCTI in 1998 and had found jobs with very little assistance from any of thier so called career guidence counselers,by the way now what about thier so called lifetime job placement assistance, It was my understanding that they would be there with available facilities for life, that is a pretty definate period of time for a business that is now no more.

My wife had aquired employment after graduation at a local corp. and they were not impressed with the so called data entry capabilites of any of the hires, I remember having to sign off on my final classes before they were completed, with the assurance that these additional areas would be covered, and as you can guess they were not, they pushed people thru like cattle not caring who was recruited.

There is a certain expectation that employers have regarding appearance in a professional enviroment, like most of the jobs these people had applied for, and I am sorry but the truth is half of these people I believe were given false hopes in order to get them to apply. That is just moraly wrong.

These promises of job security and placement are an abvious lie fabricated to entice anyone with high hopes and a limited education. I only hope that more people report this, and a class action suit is filed and the responsible parties are prosecuted.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Not meeting the needs of today's employers.

AUTHOR: Tony - (U.S.A.)

Donald and Elaina,

You are absolutely correct regarding the data entry tests. 2 of my Career Services Specialists uncovered a flaw with data entry at the Tacoma campus.

They sent 2 of our best 10key and highest wpm typists on an interview for a job. The job required wpm 65 - 70 wpm, forgive me I can't remember the 10key requirements. I do remember it was high. During the interview a 10key and typing test was given.

Both students failed the 10key portion of the test miserably!!! They failed so horribly that the hiring manager thought we must be mistaken about their 10 key skills. Luckily the employer was willing to work with us on this issue. Both Career Services Specialists took the same test at the employer's place of business and took the 10key test at BCTI.

The test a BCTI scored my Career Specialist alot higher than the employer's test. The test at BCTI was SIMPLE almost to simple. It grouped like numbers on the keypad together most of the time. It appeared to me the test was designed to make students feel better about themselves versus meeting the needs of today's employers.

As far as a student's appearence to get a professional job; this was one of the prime responsibilities of Career Services and the Professional Growth instructors. Enrollment did not dictate a potential students readiness for school. In my time at BCTI Tacoma I saw a few students who enrolled looking like they lived on the streets but graduated with a good "starter" job looking professional. My team never sent a person on a job interview that didn't look professional and have professional attire. In fact those individuals that didn't make an effort to appear professional on at least 2 days of the week never received professional office job leads.

I'm not defending BCTI however I do believe some reasons why students didn't find the job or career they wanted is their own fault. HOWEVER a majority of students were NOT able to find a good paying job because the education BCTI gave did NOT meet the needs of today's employers.
