Spring 2009 |
There is no question that in this economic downturn, unemployment is
topping the charts, and people are having difficulty finding and maintaining
good careers. The real question is how MCC is helping the community at this
MCC´s Career Center staff is available to help students and community
members in MCC´s four-county service area find careers at which they can
excel, upgrade their marketability, transition to new employment and
understand skills that directly and indirectly relate to a profession. The
Career Centers offer many services including career assessments, career
exploration, résumé and cover letter review, basic job search
assistance, interviewing techniques and educational planning.
New this year, the Career Center staff has a series of career presentations
on topics ranging from civic engagement to social capital. With an eye to the
economy, the staff created presentations in conjunction with business leaders
and community members. Presentations earlier in the year included Using an
Online Career Center, Job Search 101, Investing in Your Social Capital, The
Fork in the Road – Deciding on a Career Pathway and The Money Coach – Making
Sense of Your Dollars.
All of the presentations are free and open to the public. Consider
attending a workshop or stopping in to visit one of the Career Centers at
MCC´s South Omaha Campus, Fort Omaha Campus or Elkhorn Valley Campus.
Presentation topics for the upcoming months are:
