Career Development 101

Will you be ready to jump back into the work force after your released? Don’t know where to start? Need resume help? Work force wardrobe assistance? These were the questions that we asked the inmates in the Wharton County Jail. So, of course their answer was YES! Every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. Prairie View A&M University Cooperative Extension taught 6 sessions of Career Development 101 at the Wharton County Jail. This class was offered to male and female inmates. During the series the participants had mock interviews, created a vision board and presented it, learned how to compete in the work force world, and how to to dress for interviews. The work force world is challenging and constantly innovating. Gearing these participants up with top notch professional skills will set them apart from all other applicants. As a reward for completing the series, each inmate received a professional resume and a certificate.
