The Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce is a proud partner of IWCC' E2E program and are excited to deliver CB Career Acceleration.
This program is focused on our residents that are currently under or unemployed that are looking to start a skilled career.
The CB Career Acceleration provides opportunities for participants to get assistance during their journey of education all the way to employment opportunities. The program will provide support for each participant as and after they have completed their continuing education program through E2E. This program is a supportive program to Iowa Western Community Colleges Education to Employment. (If you are not approved for financial assistance with E2E, this program may be able to assist in getting you enrolled. - Please speak with Amanda Oloff.)
Individuals that participate in CB Career Acceleration will also be put in direct contact with hiring businesses in their completed education fields.
