Career Development Classes to Begin at SCC Soon

Two people speaking to each other in an office.Through the Continuing Education Career Development division, Sandhills Community College offers classes to classes to help individuals to do their very best at a job interview, strengthen soft skills, and more. These classes are offered at a minimal cost of $75, but the fee is waived for qualified students.

Students can match current 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.

Revamp your Career classes will be held on Thursdays beginning at 9 a.m. “Work Attitudes and Behaviors” will be held on Feb. 3, “Workplace Computer Literacy” will be held on Feb. 10, and “Ace the Job Interview” will be held on Feb. 17.
