CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A North Carolina community college is opening a center to help unemployed or underemployed professionals find a job in the health care and energy industries because those areas have openings.
The Charlotte Observer reported Friday that Central Piedmont Community College is one of eight around the country selected for the project by the League of Innovation in the Community College. A two-year grant from Walmart Brighter Futures is funding the center, which will be located on the school's Harris campus near Charlotte/Douglas International Airport.
Counselors will work with clients and employers to identify the skills needed to move to new careers.
