Career Development Classes to Begin at SCC this Summer

Student sitting in a library working on a laptop.There’s a plethora of classes for those looking to their chances of landing a job or better their career performance this summer. Through the Continuing Education Career Development division, Sandhills Community College offers classes to help individuals improve their job interviewing, 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 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. “Resumes and Cover Letters” will be held on Thursday, May 20, and July 29, “Budgeting 101: Smart Money Decisions,” on June 3, and Aug. 12, “Work Attitudes and Behaviors,” on June 17, “Ace the Job Interview,” on July 1, and “Tips for Mature Job Seekers,” on July 15.

This class will be held Monday-Thursday, June 7-10, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
