The Career Center, located in Room 1200 at the Mendocino College Ukiah Campus, contains information on careers and job placement services. The staff's focus is to assist students with personalized career development. Students are invited to explore possible career directions or gather further information on a particular job or career from the Center's resources.
Each semester workshops and seminars are held on topics ranging from "How to Choose a Major" to "Resume Writing". In addition, students may access computer programs, such as Choices Planner and the Internet for career exploration, job search, college and scholarship searches. Students looking for part-time or full-time employment are encouraged to come to the Career Center to search through the resources, where a variety of local jobs are listed. The Center offers tips on how to look for a job, how to write cover letters and resumes, and how to present oneself for a personal interview. The staff will assist you with jobs on and off-campus.
Mendocino College also offers career classes each semester. Counselors teach classes in a self-discovery format. The purpose of each class is to assess the students' interests, skills, personality and values. Some of these career classes are available in a self-paced, non-classroom setting. Another service offered by the Career Center is typing certification. For a nominal fee of $10.00, students and community members may receive this service.
