A New Vision
Job access. Job awareness. As part of our ongoing effort to improve both, a new Career Center is already in the works. Growth goals include a dedicated headquarters, enhanced staffing, and a centralized system for tracking internship placement, job placement and workforce follow-up. Interviewing for a position is about more than just having the skills; it's about effectively communicating to potential employers how you can turn a short-term job opportunity into a long-term career. Through expanded services and resources, our future Center will drill down on these nuances, creating productive partnership programs, building an alumni base, and focusing on an effective student/employer interface. Whether you're a student in search of the right career or an employer in search of the right staffing candidates, our new Career Center will be dedicated to raising the bar.
As Executive Director, my vision is to create an open interface between employers and a trained workforce, expediting demand and curating it to influence the supply of student participants. I am a facilitator, systematically bridging the gap between industry and academia by developing strategic partnerships, an informed curriculum, and an enhanced work-based experience. Remaining responsive to evolving employer needs and pivoting to address these variables is key to my role at the EWD where I continually strive to make PCC the go-to academic entity for industry engagement.
