A CBC Graduate Gets Hired!

Congratulations to CBC Graduate S.B. who was hired yesterday. We hope this will be the start of a new wave of hiring as the economy picks up. We've been getting reports from graduates that they have been invited to more interviews than before. The administrative field and the medical office field seem to be having the most increased activity. That would make sense since employers hire to relieve their pain first.

The Census Bureau is also hiring right now but, of course, those tend to be mostly temporary jobs. But, at this point, any job is a good job. Plus working helps build a resume and provide a more recent experience. This is especially true for those who have been unemployed for awhile. It's almost a "reset" button for a gap in a resume.

One reminder we give all of our graduates is even if you are offered a temporary position, take it and do a great job and make sure to get a glowing letter of recommendation from your supervisor. Those letters are worth the effort and are as good as gold, especially when it's a tight job market for job seekers.

CBC Closed for Black Friday

As is our tradition, Community Business College will be closed for Black Friday. Some have said Black Friday is for all those turkeys...
