What is the Job Preparation Center?

The TMCC Job Preparation Center assists students increase the skills necessary to obtain employment through professional development.  Our faculty and staff works closely with students to prepare them for the world of work through coaching, a variety of workshops and employment-related events. Students will receive personal services that are tailored to each individual. 

Services include: Mock interviews, resume/cover letter assistance, job search assistance, networking/social media training, interview preparation and more. 

What is the Re-Entry Center?

The TMCC Re-Entry Center offers assistance to special populations who are returning to school and/or the workplace. The Center is dedicated to helping these individuals become economically self-sufficient. Participants can enroll in two programs.

  1. Perkins III Educational Partnership Program - Special populations served by this program include single parents and displaced homemakers. Those admitted to the program must be pursuing vocational education which leads to a high skill, high wage occupation or employment.
  2. Displaced Homemaker Program of Washoe County - The program is open to any displaced homemaker or person whose primary job was caring for the family but now through death, divorce or disability of his or her partner must become the primary wage earner. The person may have been either unemployed or underemployed during the time he or she was a homemaker, as long as the homemaker was dependent upon another person for financial support. Persons formerly dependent upon government programs such as TANF may also qualify as displaced homemakers. 

Services offered include: vocational assessment, job search assistance, academic advising, financial assistance (only participants in the Educational Partnership program qualify), and community referrals.
