Career Services Center Celebrates Employer Generosity and Community Involvement

Resume Review LAAFor nearly fifty years, Skyline College has served thousands of students as they work to enhance their lives. Whether they enroll for academic, professional, or recreational reasons, students benefit most from our support during times of collaboration between our campus and our community. When we work in tandem with our neighboring companies Skyline demonstrates our mission to empower and transform at its best.

The Career Services Center was generously recognized by Enterprise Holdings for consistently supporting their employment efforts. In appreciation for referring qualified students to their organization, Stacey Caceres, Talent Acquisition Specialist, Airport Region, awarded Career Services with a $1500 donation. “We currently employ 10 Skyline students at our SFO location as well as automotive positions in our service center. We are very pleased with their work and would like to extend our gratitude to Skyline Career Services for their partnership and cooperation”. Career Services extends sincere thanks to Stacey and Enterprise Holdings.

Career Services counselors were also invited for a third year to participate in the Watermark Conference for Women in Silicon Valley on February 1. This community service effort allowed our career faculty members to provide resume review sessions designed to offer job seekers assistance and presentation tips. The conference, held in San Jose, was attended by 6,500 women—and some forward thinking men—for a day of “community and connection, information and inspiration, and motivation and momentum”. Speakers included Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice, Sheryl Sandberg, and Viola Davis, quite a group of barrier-breaking women.  Serving as volunteers was rewarding and enlightening. It was a pleasure to assist women in setting and achieving professional goals as they seek to network and grow within one of the world’s most cutting edge career environments.
