Career Development and Human Resources Development Classes

The Career Development program at Sandhills Community College is a workforce development program that provides skills assessment services, employability skills training, and career development counseling to individuals in transition and the emerging workforce. 

Our goal is to assist students in assessing their interests, personality traits, and abilities, in setting career and/or educational goals, and in creating a pathway that will lead to economic, social, and educational success.

Career Development classes are available to all and may be free for qualified students. Students may also be eligible for a Continuing Education scholarship.
