Summer Career Lab Opens to Help Community Build Better Futures One Resume at a Time

Career lab will be open June 12-Aug. 4

JUNE 12, 2017--Allan Hancock College’s Community Education is helping people build pathways to brighter futures with a free summer career lab from June 12 through August 4 on the college’s Santa Maria campus.

“This is a great way to get our community on campus,” said Community Education coordinator Elaine Healy. “We want to be a resource for our new grads and alumni, as well as advocates for the unemployed and underemployed.”

At the career lab, job seekers will have access to computers to earn a typing certificate or improve their skills with Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel and Outlook.

Students can also receive personalized assistance from instructors to help them develop a professional resume and determine their career goals.

“It’s very rewarding because you’re teaching people how to create resumes and obtain employment for a better future,” said career lab instructor Cleo Wender.

The lab provides easy access to job search platforms such as CalJobs, and LinkedIn. Instructors will also offer one-on-one assistance for creating job profiles and applications.

The career lab is located at the Language Lab in building C-11 and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. A daily $2 parking permit is required for on campus visitors.

The lab is open to the whole community and enrollment is on a continuous basis. To register, go to The course is Career Lab (VOCE 7031, CRN 10732). For more information or assistance with registration, please call Community Education at 1-805-922-6966 ext. 3209.
