SCTC hosts Career Opportunity Day 4-12-16
Joseph V. Sowmick - April 19, 2016
In an effort to provide bonus coverage, Team Observer went on location to the Katy DenHeeten Resource Center April 12 to join with the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College to celebrate SCTC Career Opportunity Day 2016. SCTC President Carla Sineway has always viewed the 1998 land grant institution as a place to start, a place to build self-confidence and become self-empowered.
“Our SCTC Career Day it is a valuable opportunity for students to begin conversations with representatives from four year institutions or look towards employment,” Sineway said. “We encourage our students to use their SCTC experience as the momentum for their future success.”
Workshops offered at the event included resume building, Briggs Meyers testing, dress for success and mock interviews. Stacy Mandoka has attended several Tribal workshops in the past and enjoys being able to bring a personal touch to her efforts in increasing employment of Tribal members.
“My role as the Anishinabe Workforce Developer is to inform students of employment and potential career paths that they can obtain with the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe and its Enterprises,” Mandoka said. “I found the students to be well informed and asked knowledgeable questions pertaining to career opportunities within the Tribe.”
