Preparation Courses Offered Through MCCC's Center for Continuing Studies
With today's economic volatility, those seeking new employment need to
understand which companies and prospects to pursue, which to avoid, and
how to enhance their skills. Tackling such issues head on, Mercer County
Community College's Center
for Continuing Studies is offering "The Job Market
You!" on Monday, Feb. 2, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the college's Conference

the many ways to communicate effectively via e-mail. Participants are
encouraged to bring their own laptop computers. The class meets March

For those wishing to delve into the world of non-profits, hone their skills,
and help agencies and organizations survive in lean times, a series of
