MCC’s Workforce Development to offer a 50+ job seminar
Mott Community College’s Workforce and Economic Development Division is partnering with the AARP Foundation and their Back to Work 50+ program to become the first Community College in Michigan to partner in this initiative. MCC will host free monthly workshops and careers coaching seminars for jobseekers aged 50 and older beginning on Friday Jan. 11 at 10 a.m. The workshops will be at the Workforce offices at 709 N. Saginaw Street in Flint. Seating is limited, call 855-850-2525 to register.
“Many people aged 50 and up still want to work,” said Dartanyan Jamerson, Director of Workforce Development. “What is nice about this program is that past work experience and training is always beneficial when it comes to placement, however, it is not a pre-requisite to participate in this workshop.”
“The workshop is for anyone aged 50 and older, regardless of education or work experience,” he added, “it is a great opportunity to learn the strategies needed to compete for full-time, in-demand jobs today.”
