The Community Career Center (CCC) came into being as the result of a multi-phase grassroots effort to address the concerns of the underemployed and unemployed in our community of Naperville, IL.
Beginning in 1992, a Naperville United Way Community Needs Assessment revealed the number one concern of local citizens was unemployment and underemployment.
As a result, CCC opened its doors in September 1996 to assist individuals in developing the tools and resources needed to conduct a successful job search and return to work.
In 2019, the Community Career Center (CNC), after much consideration, decided to change its name to Career & Networking Center.
Today the CNC provides a supportive and professional environment where individuals conduct a productive and successful job search, receive career-enhancing, and professional development advice, and build their professional network.
CNC has helped thousands of unemployed / underemployed individuals get back to work. Under the “Empower the Job Seeker” program, CNC works with job seekers to develop and execute a plan to find employment (or a better job).
The program includes access to networking groups, workshops and individual coaching in brand development, career exploration, interviewing, job search strategy, networking, resume writing and, LinkedIn.
