Business Technology & Internships

Want an edge on applying for scholarships and college admissions? In BTI, we take these critical senior tasks seriously! They become part of your daily expectations from the first day. You will experience a professional work environment and atmosphere that includes the expectations and productivity required to be successful at college and in your future career. This program targets seniors who are ready to test their self-motivation, work ethic and goal-setting skills.  There is no traditional classroom structure to this program; it is your chosen workplace for the part of the day you are in the program at Hinds and at your internship. 

The student, along with the instructor, will develop an individualized plan directed toward college and career aspirations. A big part of this plan includes refining time management skills, gathering expectations and information of intended college major, earning college credits, Microsoft certifications, and placement in an internship position to experience that particular career area. Whether it is in business, marketing, computer science, medical or legal fields, the student will be a step ahead of the other high school graduates! 

Advanced preparation and training for college success; extensive time spent on scholarships and college applications; expanded employment opportunities for great part-time jobs while pursuing your degree due to advanced computer and organizational skills; Microsoft certifications and professional internship experiences.
