Get career help in November from City College Career Center


In the wake of the global pandemic that has limited human interaction and created higher unemployment, the City College Career Center continues to offer resources for students looking for jobs and internships, as well as assistance with resume and interview skills. 

Yolanda Ramirez, the Career Center’s student personnel assistant, and American River College student support specialist Laura Adams teamed up to create November’s Career Center calendar, including a virtual career fair Tuesday, Nov. 17.

“Laura reached out to me and we thought, ‘Hey, maybe we can join forces.’ We worked on workshops. We were building the plane as we flew it,” Ramirez said. “We reached out to all our connections to build a calendar. We have been in contact with many employers from state departments to employers such as Raley’s and O’Reilly.”

When all Los Rios campuses closed in March, Ramirez had to cancel and reschedule events. She said her Zoom skills were minimal, so transitioning to virtual events was initially a challenge. 

“We have done almost 40 workshops since March, and every month we have seven to nine workshops where employers talk about interview skills, resumes, networking. They are the ones doing these workshops.” 

The Fall Virtual Career Fair, hosted through the career-building website Handshake, will provide information about part-time and full-time jobs as well as volunteer opportunities, Ramirez said.
