People who want to brush up on job-hunting skills can get free help this week from Central Wyoming College.
From Tuesday through Friday, the Jackson campus of the community college will offer classes from 3 to 5 p.m. each day. The classes cover topics such as computer basics on Tuesday, email basics on Wednesday, resume-building and online application tips on Thursday, and interview skills on Friday.
Space in the classes is limited, so the college is recommending people sign up by calling 733-7425.
“Many individuals here in town having a hard time getting work are in their late 40s and 50s and afraid of a computer,” said Susan Thulin, director of the CWC Jackson Outreach center. “We’re trying to help demystify the situation.”
This is the second time the college has offered such sessions, she said.
“Those that attend will get a lot of information,” Thulin said.
The classes are offered in conjunction with the Jackson office of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.
Registration for the college’s spring semester begins today.
Current students can enroll online. New students need to apply with the college and register in person, she said.
This semester, the college is offering new classes in microeconomics, personal finance, nutrition, digital photography, professional practice for the artist and environmental science. The schedule is available online at CWC.Edu/Academics/BrowseCourses.
Scholarship applications are also being accepted for the spring semester, funded through Old Bill’s Fun Run. Interested students should apply by Nov. 26. The applications can be found online at CWC.Edu/Financial-Aid/Scholarships.
For information or to register for classes, stop by the college’s Jackson office in the Center for the Arts or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
