CareerSource Pinellas will open a new center at SPC on Jan. 13

The SPC Workforce Institute has partnered with CareerSource Pinellas to assist individuals with their re-employment and training needs by opening a new CareerSource Center at the SPC EpiCenter.

The grand opening will be at 8 a.m. Monday, Jan. 13 at the SPC EpiCenter, room 1-401, 13805 58 St. N., Clearwater. Throughout the day, community members can attend several free workshops including:

  • Resume Development at 10:15 a.m.
  • SPC Workforce Institute Information Session from noon at 1 p.m.
  • Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) Information Session at 1 p.m.

“The Workforce Hub will serve as a one-stop shop for people in the community seeking to either enter the workforce or obtain additional skills in order to advance within their current career field,” said SPC Dean of Workforce Michael Ramsey. “Our partnership with CareerSource will help to ensure that individuals in our community receive the resources needed to overcome some of the barriers impeding them from completing education, and training programs leading to greater economic mobility.”

“Workers and business are at the heart of CareerSource Pinellas,” said CareerSource Pinellas CEO Jennifer Brackney. “We are excited about the opportunity to enhance and expand workforce services that help to create a better-skilled workforce. This gives workers a clearer pathway to higher-paying jobs and businesses a more direct connection to a talent pipeline of qualified candidates.”

The new center will provide career planning services for professional and entry-level candidates. Some of the resources offered at the center will include career orientation, job search assistance, interview techniques, professional networking opportunities and more.

Hours of operation will be 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday-Thursday.
