Windham County – BDCC Seeks Participants for Career Advancement Opportunity
The Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation is recruiting and training job seekers who are eighteen and older and are entering or reentering the workforce, or seeking to transition into a new career. BDCC will also help connect participants with local internship opportunities.
“As the summer sets in and restrictions ease, it’s the perfect time for people to think about the next steps in their career,” says Casey Haynes, BDCC’s Talent Specialist. “Frankly, it’s a tight labor market. With a little support, people can seize the moment to increase their skills and their earning potential.”
This program is part of the BDCC’s Workforce Center of Excellence trainings. Participants will also be connected with a wide range of additional local training and educational resources.
Individuals seeking internships can go to https://brattleborodevelopment.com/bdcc-internship-program/ to learn more and sign up for the first Windham Work Ready training session, starting July 6th.
Employers who would like to host an intern should contact email@example.com.
