Whether you’re seeking a first job or if you’re attempting to re-enter the workforce, making oneself a top job candidate often requires a skillset of its own.

Acquiring a job takes a combination of factors, including a stellar resume, a confident interview and many other factors.

With Brazosport College’s Spring 2021 Career Readiness Workshop Series, you’ll receive training in five of the most important aspects of landing a choice job. Workshops offered include the job search, the resume, dressing for success, interviewing skills and mock interviews.

The workshop series is free to BC students and the community. Workshops will be held in Room CLC-103 of the Corporate Learning Center.

You can choose to participate in all of the workshops or just the ones you feel are needed for your own personal improvement. Participants also have a choice of attending virtually or in person. Registration is required.

The use of face masks/coverings and other safety precautions will be in place during in-person workshops. Visit choosebc.info/career-readiness to register and choose the workshops you want to attend.
