Information for students
Information for employers

Open and ready to serve you

The Career Center is fully functioning and serving students, displaced employees and the employers in our communities. Voice mail messages are being returned, and already two displaced employees have contacted the center and are scheduled for meetings with the center’s director, a 25-year veteran in career counseling and placement.

The Career Center is staffed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Typically, the front door is locked only on the rare occasion that no one is available to staff the front desk. It was locked intermittently for a limited period of time earlier this week, although staff continued to assist individuals who stopped by.

Our former employees will receive full and personal attention. We have workshops planned and have reconfigured to best serve their needs.
