JOBS Program

The goal of the Umpqua Community College Job Opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS) Program is to enable individuals to make the transition from public assistance to self-sufficiency. Students are referred by the Oregon Department of Human Services and work with JOBS Career Advisors to develop individual goals that help prepare them for full-time, unsubsidized employment.

Instructional areas included:

  • Life and career planning
  • Adult basic education
  • Short-term, intensive professional/technical training
  • Postsecondary education
  • Work site training
  • Job search instruction
  • Job retention
  • Career development

Career Advisors work closely with other college departments and community organizations to provide educational, professional, technical and counseling services as part of their comprehensive job training and educational programs.
