Have you lost your job? Have you been applying everywhere for work and just can’t seem to get a job? If so, Piedmont Community College (PCC) can teach you some tips that might just make a difference. The following classes are being offered by PCC’s Human Resources Development program and begin this month:  

AIM for Work
AIM (Am I Marketable) for Work will meet each Tuesday morning beginning Sept. 13 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon for students who are having trouble getting back into the workforce. Topics will include: successful job search techniques, encouragement and motivation to successfully manage the stress of looking for work, development of networks with other individuals who find themselves unemployed, and exploration of the resources available through PCC’s Human Resources Development Program. This special class will continue until December. Participants will learn how to really make their resumes work for them, will practice filling our job applications, and will participate in mock interviews. Report to the College’s Workforce Training Center located at 303 S. Morgan Street, next to the Huck Sansbury walking trail on any Tuesday and try out this new class.  

Success for Ex-Offenders
Is your criminal background holding you back? Enroll in Success for Ex-Offenders. Get help with career exploration, resume development, job seeking/retention and more. Class will begin on Friday, Sept. 16, at 9 a.m. at the Employment Security Commission (ESC). This class will be held every Friday at the ESC for the remainder of the semester. For more information, contact Allen Hines at (336) 599-0684 or report to the ESC at 9 a.m. on Sept. 16 to find out about this new opportunity for those having legal barriers that are preventing them from finding work.  

Anger Management
Do you have problems managing your Anger? Is this affecting your ability to obtain and/or retain a job? A new class called Anger Management will help you to develop strategies to control your anger. Not all anger is bad, but you must understand how to control it and even benefit from it. It’s the way you manage anger that produces either positive or negative results. To enroll, report to the Workforce Development Training Center on Sept. 13 at 9 a.m. This class will be held each Tuesday and Thursday at 9 a.m. until it completes on Sept. 29. You must enroll the first day of class if you wish to participate in this 18-hour class.  

For any of the classes held at the Workforce Training Center, please report to the Center at 303 S. Morgan Street on the first day of class or call the HRD program at (336) 599-1181, ext. 241 for more information.
