The Career Services Center debuts next week at Imperial Valley College, offering services to students preparing to enter the workforce, to alumni who are job hunting, and to companies looking for employees.
Beginning Aug. 20, the Career Services Center will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays in Room 1601. It will be staffed by Maricela Moreno and Janeth Cruz.
The Center is offering a week full of incentives, starting from 3 to 4 p.m. Aug. 20 with free Career Services Center pens to be given away and refreshments served from 3 to 4 p.m. On Aug. 21, each of the first 50 students to visit the center and sign in will receive a free goodie bag. Tickets for free Hawaiian shaved ice will be given Aug. 22 to the first 100 students to visit the center and leave with resources (ticket redeemable from 3 to 4 p.m. only); and on Aug. 23, each of the first 50 students to visit and sign in at the center will receive a free notebook and reusable water bottle.
From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 24, company and business representatives are invited to an open house where they can learn how the center can help with advertisement, job postings, internships and hiring prospective employees. Appetizers and refreshments will be provided. Reservations may be made by Aug. 17 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The open house will help local employers and IVC faculty and staff see how services offered at the Center can benefit their businesses or programs.
The Center offers many opportunities for students and alumni to learn about job opportunities and internships, practice interview techniques and build resumes.
Visitors may park for free in the student parking spaces through Aug. 24.
