Information sessions for Jamestown Community College’s Career Advantage program will be held from 5-6:30 p.m. on June 6 and July 20 in Jamestown, Olean, and Dunkirk.

The Career Advantage program, which focuses on a degree in business administration, enables adults to attend classes one night a week and supplement their classroom meetings with online instruction. The program is designed to help adults complete a college degree in two years while balancing work and family commitments.

“Career Advantage is an excellent alternative for students who do not want a program that is totally online but who can concentrate on two courses as opposed to the four or five they may have in our traditional program,” said James Chimenti, a business administration professor who is coordinating the schedule of courses.

A blend of business, computer applications, and social media marketing courses will provide Career Advantage students with skills that can be put to immediate use in the workplace, Chimenti added.
