My name is Selena Ramey and I am the Career Management Director here at the West Virginia Junior College Charleston campus. I have been fortunate enough to work here for the past 4 years and love getting to know the students!
As the Career Management Director I work closely with our students from the beginning of their time here at WVJC. I offer assistance finding “survival jobs” for students that may need extra income while they are attending classes. We have wonderful relationships with employers in the area that work with our school schedule.
My main goal is to help our students find their career! We do this by completing resumes, practicing interview skills, informing students about dressing professionally, sending out resumes, setting up interviews, and helping students write thank you letters after their interviews are complete. Again, we have wonderful relationships with employers in the area that have hired and continue to hire our students.
Every year we hold a Career Fair with around 30+ employers in the Charleston are to give our students and graduates the opportunity to network and find their career! We have many students get hired throughout this process and also have had students find an externship site at the Career Fairs. We also bring employers into class during Career Prep to do “mock interviews” so the students are able to practice in a professional environment as well.
