As a part of the eXpress Ed initiative launched last year in response to the economic downturn, the Community College of Aurora established numerous convenient and affordable ways for people to get retrained and upgrade jobs skills so they can compete for jobs that are in demand in the new economy.
eXpress Ed classes are popular at CCA, but so are the numerous career workshops that are offered. The college’s Career Center offers sessions on résumé and cover letter writing, career exploration, employment strategies, and financial aid, and provides a host of resources such as books and reference materials on careers, a computer and a printer for job searching, and the ever-popular Job Club.
And now CCA announces a brand new slate of workshops: an Entrepreneur Series, featuring How to Start Your Own Business, Market Essentials for a Small Business, and Show Me The Money; Finding a College Major; Getting a Job After 50; Social Networking; Business Etiquette; How Not to Get a Job; and a Career Fitness Week in the spring designed especially for CCA grads-to-be.
Other upcoming workshops, all free and open to the public, include Tips for Balancing Work, School, and Life; Budgeting Personal Finances; Creating Social Networks; and Job Search Strategies.
