Café assists with career preparation
Every first Wednesday from noon to 2 p.m. at the Desert Vista Cafeteria, a Career Café helps all Pima Community College students get started on their path toward a job.
The Career Café covers topics such as interviewing skills to help students answer questions properly and resume/cover letter tips to help with their applications.
Each Wednesday, the Café also has a “Monthly Special Brew”that acts as a theme to cover certain topics more deeply.
The “Brew” for November is “Got the Job. Now What?” The theme is to make sure students show up on time and act professionally while they have the job.
September was “Returning To work” and October’s was “Before you Accept the Job.”
For more information, call 206-4500.
