The Career Center
The Career Canter at Sandhills Community College helps prospective students, current students, and alumni with career planning and job search tools.
We specialize in career development, which is the process of helping you identify, plan, and achieve your career goals. Information, advice, training, and resources are designed to help you select an educational path that can lead to a financially rewarding and personally satisfying career.
Career options and planning
We can help you explore career possibilities and help you create a plan to achieve your goals.
- Career library: books, publications, and video materials with career options, job descriptions, and salary information
- Online exploration programs: tools to explore your interests, abilities, values, likes and dislikes, and personality strengths and traits
- Career inventories
- Personality assessments
Many instructors at Sandhills ask us to come into the classroom and make presentations on various subjects to their students.
Tools for your job search
Whether you are looking for part-time work while you are a student at Sandhills Community College or if you have graduated within the past five years, we can help you develop your resume or critique your current one. We can help you create an effective cover letter and offer mock interviews to give you the confidence you need for your interview.
