WCC Offering Course to Boost Your Employability

Wilson Community College will kick off a new course this Spring.  The Going Places Network is a six-week virtual program designed specifically for unemployed and underemployed women, ages 18 and older.  During this short-term course, students will gain long-term employability skills.

There’s an emphasis on both personal and professional development, employability skills, setting goals, and developing an action plan.  Students will learn how to write a cover letter, prepare a resume, and practice in mock interviews.

There will not only be weekly sessions, but also one-on-one career coaching and networking opportunities.  All of the instructors are well-seasoned in this arena and will mentor students along the way.

Upon completion of the course, students will receive a certificate. Students are sure to gain confidence in their job search and overall skillset — ready to tackle any job interview.

The cost of the program is $75.  However, fees are waived for qualifying individuals who are either unemployed, underemployed, or those pending layoff.  To see if you qualify, give us a call at 252-246-1421.

Classes start on March 1, and will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 to 11:30 am through April 7.  For more information or to register for The Going Places Network, contact Robby Taylor, Director of Workforce Development, at rtaylor@wilsoncc.edu or 252- 246-1421. #WilsonCC We make Wilson work.
