MISSION

To provide diverse resources to empower individuals to fulfilling employment.

HISTORY

The Career & Networking Center came into being as the result of a multi-phase grassroots effort to address the concerns of the underemployed and unemployed in our community. Beginning in 1992, a Naperville United Way Community Needs Assessment revealed the number one concern of our local citizens was unemployment and underemployment. As a result, the Community Career Center 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, after much consideration decided to change its name to Career & Networking Center (CNC).

Today the Career & Networking Center provides a supportive and professional setting where individuals can conduct a productive and successful job search, receive career-enhancing, professional development advice and build their professional network. The Career & Networking Center (CNC) has helped thousands of unemployed and underemployed individuals get back to work. Under the umbrella of the, “Empower the Job Seeker” program, the Center works with job seekers to develop and execute a plan to find employment (or a better job) needed for greater financial stability and self-sufficiency. An expert group of human resource and other business professionals are available for individual consultation to assist individuals in setting reasonable goals and implementing strategies that meet their specific needs. Perhaps, one of the unique features about the Center are the coaching appointments, which include: general career consultation, brand development, career exploration,  interviewing skills, job search strategy, networking, and resume writing. Programs and services are available without geographic restrictions.
