Career & Employment Services Opportunities
According to the US Department of Labor Statistics, 70 percent of all jobs are found through networking. This is also known as utilizing your “hidden” job market. Job candidates should practice their networking skills throughout the Career Achievement Process (CAP). Networking is crucial to achieving goals in every part of your life and gives you the power to act, rather than wait. Job candidates should remember that networking is not asking for a job or favors.
Practice really does make perfect. Mock interviews provide job candidates with the opportunity to practice and fine-tune their interview skills. You will receive constructive feedback, which can help you to prepare for future interviews. Mock interviews are conducted by your career strategist and/or professionals in the community.
Internships are no longer just for students. Having an open-mind and approaching employment in a creative manner can lead to new opportunities. The CES department is proud to partner with companies within our community who are committed to helping job candidates gain experience in the workplace. Speak to your career strategist about potential internship opportunities.
Sometimes Job Training Programs are useful in improving a job candidate’s employment prospects. CES now offers financial aid to help select job candidates bridge skill gaps and develop new abilities. Talk to your career strategist to determine if a training program is a good fit for you.
