The Tennessee Career Center at Lawrence County is here to help you build your career! Whether you are 25, 45, or 65 there is an opportunity for you to continue your education (or get your General Educational Development (GED)). The Career Center will work with you to assess your skills and develop a career plan.
Many classes are available, including those offered in conjunction with the Adult Learning Center, Columbia State Community College, Tennessee Technology Centers, and approved private training providers.
Recently, around 300 displaced workers sought re-training through the Career Center, to earn degrees and certificates in fields such as:
Business Systems Technology
Computer Operations Technology
Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR)
Heavy Equipment Operator
Industrial Maintenance Technology
Machine Tool Technology
If they can do it, so can you!
The Career Center also works to match job seekers with employers, from the resume-writing process through job interviews. A brand new program, the Career Readiness Certificate, is currently being offered. This program awards a bronze, silver, or gold certificate based on WorkKeys. These certificates will become a requirement for employment at many companies in the area. Please contact the Career Center to obtain more information regarding this new program.
