New Workforce and Career Center to offer services for job seekers and employers

February 17, 2021

Cowley College is excited to announce that its new Workforce and Career Center in Arkansas City will be a branch of the Workforce Alliance in Wichita, providing all of the programs that are offered at the Wichita workforce center. The Center will offer employment and career services for job seekers and employers.

Cowley recently announced the hiring of Greg Butler as its new Workforce and Career Specialist. Butler said the most important thing the Workforce and Career Center will offer is knowing that if an individual is unemployed or uncertain about their career aspirations, Cowley is here for them.

“We will offer job search assistance, workshops, assessment tools to identify skills or interest, resume, career training assistance and application assistance,” Butler said. “We additionally can conduct Kansas WORKReady Assessments to help your skills stand out.”

The Center will offer employers solutions for workforce development, some at no cost.

“I hope to establish this as a center for students, the unemployed/underemployed, and businesses in Cowley County to have your career and employment needs met,” Butler said. “Cowley College is an important part of Cowley County's future and the Workforce and Career Center will enrich the lives of all of Cowley County.”
