The Career Development Center (CDC) is a division of Jewish Family & Children's Service (JF&CS), a non-profit, non-sectarian, multifaceted social service agency. The CDC develops innovative programs to meet the ever-changing needs of the Pittsburgh workforce. Their services address the needs of a wide range of job seekers, including those just starting a career, considering a job/career change or recently laid off. They also offer programs customized to meet the unique needs of specific job seeker populations, including mature workers, immigrants and at-risk youth.
The CDC offers career counseling and assessment services, job application skill development (resumes, cover letters, interviewing skills and more) to package and position potential applicants for a competitive advantage, help formulating and conducting a strategic job search and providing the encouragement and support along the way.
There is even an Online Learning Center, providing easy, affordable access to numerous self-paced tutorials and instructor-led courses to enhance professional and personal development.
This is an opportunity that is ideal for technologically savvy volunteers. The CDC is looking for a few people to help teach and expand client knowledge of computer skills and basic computer applications such as the Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook).
This opportunity is flexible based upon the availability of the volunteer and the need. All activities take place at the CDC (located at 5743 Bartlett St., Pittsburgh, PA 15217)
