– CAREER DEVELOPMENT –
Feedback from the Career Coaches on resumes and mock interviews provide the necessary guidance to help each customer improve his or her marketing plan. Coaches help job seekers explore themselves in order to determine industry preferences or the types of jobs they should pursue.
After an initial meeting, a Career Coach will help customers develop a plan and direct them to additional resources. NCAC offers three types of assessments: skill-based (WorkKeys), personality (Myers-Briggs) and interest (Strong Interest Inventory). Customers with identified barriers are also directed to community service providers for further assistance in addressing each barrier.

Talent Development helps a person changing careers to increase his or her skills through the Workforce Investment Act training funds. Training is for customers who lack the necessary skills to achieve self-sufficient employment or those who are looking to get one step further in their careers.
