Welcome to the BCC (Business & Career Center @ Fredricksen)!
Fall is upon us, and for most everyone, it beckons some sort of change. To some, it signals an increase in learning and activities—for others, things slow down as we welcome the cooler weather. For the BCC, it brings a NEW line of fall programming, focused on positive goals and an increase in knowledge and skill-building. We have many new additions, please check out our expanded list of workshops and programs!
The BCC also offers something that is difficult to find at most facilities--evening times for our workshops, created especially for those who need to improve their career skills outside of the normal workday times. Register for one of our great programs, or stop in to see us during walk-in sessions. Your future starts here!
