The Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce is a proud partner with the Iowa West Foundation. With their financial support, the CB Chamber is able to bring valuable workforce programming to area residents.
The CB Career Acceleration Program is focused on residents that are currently under or unemployed and are looking to start a skilled career.
The CB Career Acceleration Program provides opportunities for participants to receive assistance as they search for a new occupation.
The program will provide support for each participant either during this workforce-ready workshop or by helping them get enlisted in a local continuing education course in the career path of their choice.
WHAT THE CB CHAMBER WILL DO:
Please check the calendar for event dates and register. This is a FREE program.
** We require 5 participants to have the orientation. If there are fewer you'll be notified and moved to the following month.
Below you will find links to two resume samples. These are great reference tools. You will also find a resume guide. The guide will tell you what information you should bring with you to either develop or update your resume.
CB Tech Career Acceleration program is completely free for you to participate in thanks to the partnerships of AIM Institute, Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce, Centro Latino of Iowa, and Iowa Western Community College and our grant from Google.
During these classes, you will explore the five areas of tech where you can find a career. After the course, you qualified to enlist for phase two. Phase two is also completely free. During phase two you will complete 100-hours of coding classes and English as a Second Language. After course completion, you will receive a one-year subscription to LinkedIn Learning, an IT navigator for next career steps, and a Google Chrome.
