CACC celebrates 25 years of Partnership with The University of Missouri Administrative Services
The Career Center and the University of Missouri Administrative Services celebrate a 25-year relationship they describe as a "perfect partnership."
"We view it as an absolutely perfect partnership," said Jackie Jones, vice chancellor of the administrative services department at MU. "We match up so well. We have a lot of departments, many of whom are hiring the skill sets involved at the Career Center."
Facets of the partnership include job shadowing, resume help and mock interviews involving the IT, trades and culinary arts areas taught at the Career Center.
One of the biggest areas was the creation of the "I Can" award, Jones said. "It is based on attendance, quality of work and respect for others and yourself. If students continue doing what they have done to receive the award, they will be successful in life."
The awards are given out at quarterly breakfasts that are well attended by supportive friends and family. Additionally well attended is the awards ceremony held at the end of the year at Jesse Auditorium honoring students completing certificates and individual honors in the Career Center disciplines.
Overall, Jones sees the partnership as a "great relationship over the years, a good combination of skills and goals."
