Piedmont Community College (PCC) will offer the Working Smart training on Sept. 5 – 28. This course will meet 1 – 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at PCC’s Workforce Training Center located at 303 S. Morgan Street in Roxboro.
Working Smart is a North Carolina soft-skills program developed by the Charlotte Mecklenburg Workforce Developmental Partners. It is designed to provide job-seekers the work and life skills that enhance employee productivity. Employers are looking for candidates who have the "soft-skills" that lead to success in the following ways: communication, problem solving skills, time management, accountability, and more.
Upon completion, students will possess the employability skills most important to employers. In addition, successful participants will receive a certificate from Charlotte Works. This credential validates the skills taught in the program and gives students the competitive edge in future job opportunities.
