Center for Workforce Development Searching for Local Experts

September 11, 2018 | Campus News

The East Central College Center for Workforce Development (CWD) needs talented people to help provide training to local businesses. It is holding a series of talent fairs this fall to allow those interested to stop by and discuss how their talents can be used.

“This is a great opportunity for retirees or someone looking for part-time work,” said Joel Doepker, Vice President of External Relations. “We have a great amount of knowledge in our area and their work experience has a tremendous amount of value.”

The events will be held at the East Central College Business and Industry Center, 42 Prairie Dell Plaza Drive, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Each talent fair has a different focus based on the type of talent needed.
