Bringing career resources to West Point

Published 7:11 pm Wednesday, June 12, 2019

The Worksource Three Rivers Mobile Career Lab is stationed monthly at West Point Technology Training Center to provide residents with assistance in job readiness and job search activities as well as provide information on Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) funded training opportunities. 

The Mobile Career Lab, which looks like a large recreational vehicle, is a 12 to 6-stations, state-of-the-art-fully-accessible computer lab.

The free service is provided by the Three Rivers Regional Commission, of which Troup County is a member. The Mobile Career Lab is almost always on the move serving a 10-county region that includes the West Central Georgia counties of Butts, Carroll, Coweta, Heard, Lamar, Meriwether, Pike, Spalding and Upson in addition to Troup. The Mobile Career Lab will be at the West Point Technology Training Center at 1122 OG Skinner Drive on the fourthWednesday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. If interest grows in the Lab’s services, the regional commission will consider visiting additional dates and times.

Career Counselors man the lab and can help residents discover a career path using a computerized comprehensive assessment test that will measure their aptitudes, skills and interest. The career counselors can also determine training opportunities and eligibility for residents to possibly receive tuition, fees and child care during training. Residents may use the computers for job searches and may print copies of their resumes in the lab.

The Mobile Career Lab will next visit the West Point Technology Training Center on Wednesday, June 26 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Mobile Career Lab is fully accessible and is open to all residents ages 18 and above, including senior citizens looking for reemployment or supplemental income.
