Every Tuesday during the semester, 12:15-1 (except during Spring Break), we host a casual job search workshop. Think of it as a time to walk in and ask questions about your job or internship search, without the need to make an appointment.
Questions? Call 236-1611 or 236-1605.

Berkshire Works will hold a career fair on September 12 at the Crowne Plaza in Pittsfield. The fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

On May 9, 2013, from 4-7 p.m., the work of visual arts students from Berkshire Community College were the focus of a year-end celebration in the Koussevitsky Arts Center. A part of that celebration also took place in the Susan B. Anthony building, where visitors saw the work that seven students created for the BCC Career Center’s Career Cafe.
The seven pieces depict people engaged in various types of work, including serving food, making music, and framing up a wall. Their professor and director of the department, Lisa Griffith, gave the assignment, and they set to work investigating various periods, styles and approaches, including art deco and early labor movement posters. Then they created their own. The results are visually strong and direct depictions of people at work. The students have donated their work to the Career Center.
The Career Café is a new program of the Career Center, where workshops and other small group work-related discussions take place. For more information, call 413-236-1611, or 236-1605.
New graduates were invited to the Career Cafe to discuss their job search challenges and ideas on Tuesdays at noon during the month of June.
The Tuesday at noon workshops are over, but if you would like to discuss your job search, please call 236-1605 to make an appointment. We will be happy to help you to make a strategy, brainstorm, hone your interview skills, and help in whatever way that we can.
