Final reminder: updated Wednesday night hours

Starting next week, our Wednesday night hours are changing: the NCWorks Career Center at 1401 W. Morehead Street will be open only on the second and third Wednesdays of every month.

We will be closed on Wednesday, Nov. 5, and open on Nov. 12 and 19.

Now that we have two other NCWorks Career Centers available, Charlotte Works offers more places to serve you better and closer to where you are:

Each of these Career Centers has newer, faster computers in their fully-staffed Resource Centers. You can meet with a career coach and/or WIA staff to learn about training opportunities. And soon, we’ll be offering workshops at those two locations.

We’ll still hold orientations at 5:45 p.m., a career coach will be available to assist you and the Resource Center will be open and fully staffed on both Wednesday nights the West Morehead Street location is open.

We look forward to seeing you on November 12!

Charlotte Works hosts nearly 30 SNAP sites across Mecklenburg County that have computers, printers and trained volunteers to assist you in your job search. Some of them have evening and weekend hours. Find one close to you.
