Due to the lack of productive communication between the students and the career success center at LBCC, students are worried that they won’t be marketed to the right prospective employers for achievement.
Students who attend LBCC are completing degrees in potential careers to only be met with unemployment. So the question is, is LBCC meeting the criteria, expectations and needs? No.
LBCC should find ways to accelerate their degree programs in a proactive way instead of cutting the necessity classes that help students likely to graduate and find an establish job.
I believe that there are ways to professionally fulfill the expansion by taking a big leap in the right direction.
The workforce at LBCC should start coordinating seasonal job fairs that give students opportunities to network with a variety of likely employers. The development should also collaborate with other community colleges throughout California and construct a job convention that has a range of promising companies that tie in with the students’ major. As well as, using informative advertisement, job leads and class presentations. By doing this it will hopefully bridge the gap between educational trained graduates and ascending into the reality of the work atmosphere.
The coordinator of the career success development, Debra Garcia told me “the center environment looks like the economy”. She even addressed the reason why students are not receiving the right opportunities. Even though the center welcomes 25 to 60 students daily there is still the “lack of visibility” due to location from recent budget cuts.
However, even though the development at LBCC mostly services award-winning programs in culinary, nursing and fire science, I have come to realize that the career success center has limited boundaries to branch out to other degree programs and “lend a hand” for students who want to be successful.
Why aren’t the other prestigious degree programs receiving more attention for their structure and possibilities?
Us students actually need stabled assistance so we can, in reality reach our professional and educational goals and not assume.
Especially in our generation, a job is want makes us, to push us forward in life to be successful. So in order to accomplish the goals we set for ourselves therefore students unquestionably need supplementary attention.
We need the professional treatment that a 4-year university receives and the degree programs that can put us on the top of the list.
It doesn’t matter if LBCC is a community college; we demand respect.
