Analysis

The One-Stop Career Center is our primary resource to serve individuals seeking employment and career training.  Through comprehensive service, the Career Center provides access to a range of services including career counseling, career planning which includes identifying training opportunities and credential attainment, as well as a host of “wrap around” service providers.  The centralized location of this service delivery model provides each client with an opportunity to successfully customize and attain their career goals.  Career services include a combination of skills assessment, work-readiness training, on-the-job training and apprenticeships.  As of March 31, 2019, the center has served 162 individuals, providing 58 work-based learning opportunities – exceeding the goal of 40; and placed 149 individuals in employment, with the goal of 150

Next Steps

The Career Center is actively seeking strategies to increase outreach to potential clients. Through an increase in the number of job fairs and other employment events, the Career Center is increasing opportunities for job seekers to engage with employers.  Utilizing our business service representatives, we are instituting an outreach strategy targeting employers in designated career pathways to ensure employment for those actively attaining skill training and credentials.  Also career counselors are partnering with external partners to provide service directly into the community.  Career counselors are positioned at Durham Technical Community College and working with the Department of Social Services to extend outreach to those seeking career resources.
