Central Piedmont provides a comprehensive set of resources to help students and community members reach their career goals.
For Central Piedmont Curriculum Students and Alumni
Whether a student is just starting their college journey or about to graduate, Career Services is here to help. Our three main areas of focus are:
• Helping students select their career or program of study
• Assisting students and graduates with their job search
• Connecting students and alumni to employers
An important part of being able to find employment after graduation is getting experience while you are in classes. Workplace Learning has information about gaining experience through internships (paid and unpaid), work-based learning classes (earning class credit) and apprenticeships (jobs paired with in-depth training at Central Piedmont).
For All Charlotte Community Members
The Small Business Center supports entrepreneurship, small business training, and economic development through innovative continuing education programs to help entrepreneurs start a business, grow a business, or keep pace with the ever-changing small business environment. Services are open to the Charlotte community.
Corporate and Continuing Education offers courses and programs year-round and is designed for adults who want to strengthen job skills, change careers, and become more competitive in the job market. These courses are open enrollment and delivered in a variety of formats and in multiple locations. The training is most often short-term, industry-based, and focused on real-world applied skills and certifications.
Whether the goal is to attain a high school credential, take courses in English as a Second Language, gain first work experiences, or simply to upgrade skills, College and Career Readiness courses combine job skills with career support and assistance.
