JAMESTOWN - For the second year, Jamestown Business College and Seneca Gaming Corporation have partnered to bring professional training to select employees in the Corporation's Career Development program.
As part of the six-week program, JBC offered professional development seminars to participants in the already established Career Development Program at Seneca Allegany Casino.
JBC, which has traditionally offered extensive career development training to its associate and bachelor degree students, extended its programming in an effort to partner with the community. As part of the program, the college offered trainings in areas of professional and dining etiquette, accountability, motivation, and strong customer service.
Participants from this year's Seneca Professional EDGE program are shown with Career Development staff and Jamestown Business College staff.
JBC President, David Conklin, said that he is pleased with the partnership.
"Over the past several years, we have experienced great success with our own professional training at both the associate and bachelor degree level," he said. "So, when we were approached to partner with SGC, it seemed like a great opportunity to partner. Their goals for the future and our trainings go hand-in-hand. Needless to say, we are glad to see the program extend into another year."
The SGC Career Development Program, that runs in all of the Seneca properties, has a goal of empowering qualified Seneca team members for advancement within the Seneca Gaming Corporation. Participants complete work in various departments of the casino and also participate in various leadership and professional activities as they progress through the program.
SGC was established by the Seneca Nation of Indians in August 2002 for the purpose of developing, constructing, leasing, operating, managing, maintaining, promoting and financing all of the Nation's gaming facilities. For more information go online at www.senecagamingcorporation.com.
