Career Prep

CBO recognizes the importance of supporting our Scholars as they prepare for life after college. To improve our students’ opportunities, we offer a wide range of career-oriented experiences so our Scholars have the practical skills to successfully enter the workplace. CBO hosts several workshops for our college students that address topics on resume writing and cover letters, interviewing and following up, effective elevator pitches, and the power of networking. In addition, CBO provides professional attire for some of our scholars through our Suited for the Job program.

Finally, CBO partners with many local businesses to connect our students with paid internships, which have become one of the most practical ways for students to develop real-world job experiences and prepare for future employment. CBO hosts an annual event to connect Scholars with companies who offer paid internships or jobs during the summer.
