As a part of National Career Development month, employment development professionals are encouraged to celebrate with professional related activities. Tri-C is taking a week out to acknowledge just that!
Starting November 16th, Tri-C Metro will be holding a number of sessions and discussions for students about proven steps to success, development skills, and techniques that every student should know.
The focuses of these events are to offer opportunities for students to improve their employment readiness skills. National Career Development Week at Tri-C will include discussions on job tips and internship opportunities, mock interview sessions, a clothing bazaar, professional-wear fashion show, as well as an etiquette luncheon to end the week’s activities.
“Students will be learning skills not only for employment, but life skills in terms of how you present yourself and how you conduct yourself when you’re in a professional luncheon or environment,” said Maria Brathwaite, Career Services Specialist.
During the week, Women in Transition will also be presenting Hope’s Closet, a program created to meet the need of professional wear for students. The wardrobe-shopping bazaar will be held on Nov. 19th in the Campus Center Student Lounge.
Hope’s Closet is also taking donations of new or gently used career clothing other than shoes and undergarments that can be worn to an interview or business meeting. Students are also encouraged to bring canned goods and/or other nonperishable items to the wardrobe bazaar to have a chance at winning a grand prize.
