Career advantage information sessions planned

An information session for Jamestown Community College’s Career Advantage program will be held from 5-6:30 p.m. on July 20 in Jamestown, Olean and Dunkirk.

The sessions meet in the Center for Continuing Education at the Jamestown and Cattaraugus County campuses and North County Center. For more information, call (800) 388-8557, extension 1001.

The Career Advantage program, which focuses on a degree in business administration, enables adults to attend classes one night a week and supplement their classroom meetings with online instruction. The program is designed to help adults complete a college degree in two years while balancing work and family commitments.

“Career Advantage is an excellent alternative for students who do not want a program that is totally online but who can concentrate on two courses as opposed to the four or five they may have in our traditional program,” said James Chimenti, a business administration professor who is coordinating the schedule of courses.

A blend of business, computer applications, and social media marketing courses will provide Career Advantage students with skills that can be put to immediate use in the workplace, Chimenti added.
