Displaced professionals have a new resource to help them get back to work. The Professional Career Center has opened on the second floor at 525 N. Tryon Street.

The center is part of the Charlotte Regional Recovery Initiative launched earlier this year by Gov. Beverly Perdue. It offers computer workstations, telephone access, conference/meeting space, daily workshops, entrepreneurial resources and individual career counseling.

Corporate sponsors are: Ajilon, Bank of America, Career Builder, Charlotte Business Journal, Comsys, Duke Energy, EDS, HP, Infra-source, Integra Staffing, Jigsaw, Lee Hecht Harrison, Lowe’s, MetLife, Microsoft, Time Warner Cable and TransAmerica.

The center is one of the back-to-work efforts coordinated by the Regional Recovery Initiative team. Others include ProNetCharlotte.com, regional ProNet networking groups, BizBoost for small businesses and FastTrac training for entrepreneurs.

Center hours:
Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Friday, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Preferred Parking is offering special rates at a nearby lot for the center’s patrons.
