86% of our Spring 2015 goHIRE program participants had jobs BEFORE or within a week of graduation.

goHIRE program addresses many areas that many
​students entering the workforce are deficient in:


Critical Thinking + Problem Solving
Oral/Written Communications
Teamwork Collaboration
Leadership 
Professionalism + Work Ethic
Career Management

For many years, collegiate institutions have borne the responsibility of preparing young adults for Corporate America. However, as with each generation, there are significant changes and challenges that hinder young graduates transitioning competently to the work force.

 

So who’s left holding the bag when the students are not ‘prepared’ for Corporate America?

 

As a higher learning educational institution, let us partner with your Career Services Center to prepare your students.

Every educational institution is not built the same and neither are the needs of their students. With this in mind goHIRE is offered and can be executed within one of many options.

Our foundation, T. Burks & Associates, has been in the business for over a decade, creating relationships, bridging gaps and successfully preparing individuals for career opportunities.  Because of this success, goHIRE could be right for your school.

Why should I hire you?

 

We know students are grappling with the right answer versus the most obvious answer. “I need a job”, I’m broke”, “I have a degree and I’m ready” and so on. However, do they REALLY know how to answer the question and stand out?

 

 

Your Job Search is Still Loading.

 

Graduating is stressful but dealing with it, along with the expectations that come thereafter are incalculable. How will students managing the job search, stay motivated and on course when after-graduation navigation gets murky? This empowering talk will help students pace their potential while their job search is still loading.

 

 

From the dorm to the cubicle.

 

Dorm life shows students how to live and work in tight spaces while collegiate academia taught prioritization and the importance of group work. Even though students study their fields for four (or more) years and completed awesome internships, do they know how to be a reliable part of an organizational team? Burks will give students the tools to navigate through this incredible transition that leaves many new grads in shock.

 

 

Millennials have a difficult path to navigate in today’s Corporate America.  Do they invent their future or find a place to fit in?  The answer could be both.  Through a gohire speaking event or workshop, students can bridge the gap between expectations and reality in college and Corporate America.  Contact us for one of our grab topics.

**Custom Speaking Topics Available

Young, broke and almost famous.

The young adult mind is an interesting but puzzling piece of work. Mixed with high-energy, a dab of dubious friends along with a sense of entitlement can be the makings of a wrong-turn college experience. In this candid talk for sophomores, Tasha Burks will remind students of their real potential, re-align them for success after college and transfer the sense of entitlement, to real “POWER.”
(*Ideal for 2nd semester sophomores)

–Spring 2015 HBCU

"this program has already proven to be instrumental in the delivery of many services we offer students.  Although similar, goHIRE’s conveyance and student engagement is immensely broader, more enlightening with relevant topics, and intriguing to the students. After personally sitting in their workshops, I can attest to their commitment to the students.  The workshops speak the students’ language, and they are listening."
