College to Offer Free Career-Development Workshop


The New Choices/New Options program, a free career-development workshop at Pennsylvania College of Technology, is accepting registrations for a new session beginning April 20.

The workshop will meet from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday, each week from April 20 to May 7 on Penn College’s main campus in Williamsport.

New Choices/New Options is provided at no cost to displaced homemakers, single pregnant women, single parents with full or joint custody of dependents, and individuals seeking high-wage/high-skill careers in fields that are nontraditional for their gender. Eligibility guidelines apply. Child-care and transportation-cost assistance may be available.

The ultimate goal of the programming is to help people find employment in careers that provide self-sufficiency wages. Many of those attending the workshops move into further training before finding jobs. Others will utilize the job-search skills taught in the workshops to seek employment.

The free classes guide participants through career assessments to identify their career goals. Training is offered for computer skills, resume-writing and interview preparation. Special life skills needed for success on the job are also addressed, including coping with stress, communication and more.
