PCC offers a free Mission Employment lab with one-on-one assistance to better serve job seekers

The Piedmont Community College (PCC) Mission Employment lab is now open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays at PCC’s Workforce Training Center located at 303 South Morgan Street in Roxboro.

This lab is designed to help individuals:

Develop a resume

Complete online job applications

Create an email account

Perform online job searches

Earn a NC Career Readiness

Certificate

Job seekers will also receive one-on-one assistance with accessing the NCWorks website. When using the lab, students will have free access to computers, copiers, printers, and a fax machine to help with the job search.

Students can also enroll in Mission Employment to earn a NC Career Readiness Certificate (CRC).

To earn a CRC, individuals take WorkKeys® assessments in three major areas — applied mathematics, reading for information, and locating information.

An individual’s test performance determines whether a bronze, silver, or gold certificate is earned. The higher the certificate level earned, the more jobs the recipient is qualified to perform.

KeyTrain®, an internetbased curriculum that helps individuals achieve higher levels in Career Readiness, is available for student use in the Mission Employment lab, as well. KeyTrain® helps prepare individuals to take Work- Keys® assessments by offering lessons, pre- and post-tests to measure an individual’s skill level, and target areas in need of improvement.

To attend the Mission Employment lab or for more information, contact PCC’s Workforce Development Team at (336) 322-2156 or the Workforce Training Center at (336) 599-4620.
