The Work Experience Department’s classes focus on the 21st century work skills that are critical to success in today’s changing workplace. National and local employers constantly emphasize the need for employees to have excellent work skills, such as communication, customer service, time management, leadership, teamwork, and flexibility.
Through the department’s general and occupational courses you will improve your job skills, apply classroom theory to the workplace, and earn college credit (the courses are electives at SRJC and transfer to most CSU schools). If you have already taken a number of classes in your specialty, the department’s Intern Program can help you find a position that will give you needed experience and the chance to use your skills in a work setting.
For students who are exploring a specific industry or who wish to volunteer in the community, the department’s Community Involvement courses offer college credit when you volunteer at a nonprofit organization, government agency, or school.
While the department does not award certificates or degrees, you will acquire skills to help you advance in your career.
