Keep the momentum of the new year up and gain knowledge to support your career journey. Through the Continuing Education Career Development division, Sandhills Community College offers classes to help individuals plan careers, seek jobs, learn soft skills, and upgrade computer skills. These classes are offered at a minimal cost of $75, but the fee is waived for qualified students.
Students can match skills with an existing job or develop a training plan to learn new skills, explore career opportunities, and develop a written plan of action in “Revamp Your Career.” They will create or update their résumé, customizing it for different jobs. Students will also learn to sell themselves and stand out from other applicants in an interview. Participants will learn to deal with the stress of long-term unemployment and how to use age as an asset in their job search.
“Revamp Your Career” offers various monthly classes that are carried out online. Online classes are very similar to a traditional class, only taken from your home (or wherever your computer, tablet, or phone is located.) Most sessions are presented live. Students can interact in real-time with the instructor and fellow classmates through the camera, microphone, or typing in a chat window. They may be asked to submit assignments or projects through email.
Two “Revamp Your Career” classes will be offered in March. “Tips for the Mature Job Seekers” will be held on Thursday, March 11 from 9-10:30 a.m. “Resume Writing” will be held on Thursday, March 25 from 9-11 a.m. Call Pamela Alsobrook at (910) 944-7697 for more information and to register.

This class will be held Monday-Thursday, March 15-18, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
This class requires face-to-face interaction CDC recommendations and precautions for a safe environment will be stringently followed. The number of students in a classroom has been reduced to allow for distancing and students are required to wear a face/mouth covering when on campus.

Campus Health Precautions
For the continued safety and well-being of students, faculty, and staff, Sandhills Community College has installed additional hand sanitizing stations on campus and a deep cleaning is being carried out each evening using EPA-approved disinfectants and foggers. A campus-wide sanitizing wipe down of door pulls and light switches is done twice each weekday and the use of water fountains has been discontinued. Service desk shields have been installed in high traffic areas.
Additional Continuing Education classes will begin in April and plans for summer semester classes are currently being made with a full slate of classes being offered.
