Eastern Kentucky University of Manchester in conjunction with TeleWorks USA will hold a Digital Career Center Open House Celebration on Friday, October 11th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the EKU campus in Manchester.

The public is welcomed to attend and learn more about job opportunities.

Teleworks USA recently partnered with EKU to open the new Digital Career Center and connect prospective teleworkers in Clay and surrounding counties with new remote-work opportunities. The partnership officially commenced in September, and has resulted in a space on campus that includes everything needed to complete Teleworks USA’s customer service and technical support workshops, and prepare for and land jobs in the digital economy.

“We couldn’t be more happy to have entered into this partnership with Eastern Kentucky University—our first Teleworks USA partnership with one of Kentucky’s four-year universities,” said Michael Cornett, EKCEP Director of Agency Expansion and Teleworks USA. “For anyone in Clay and surrounding counties who may be curious about what Teleworks USA does, this open house event is a great opportunity to learn more and even enroll for future workshops.”

An initiative of the Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program, Inc. (EKCEP), Teleworks USA identifies and develops legitimate remote-work job opportunities with multiple national and global companies, and helps prospective teleworkers prepare for and land those positions. Starting salaries for most jobs range between $10-$13 per hour.

Teleworks USA is expected to feature ongoing on-site activity and monthly workshops at the new Digital Career Center. The public at large has an opportunity to see and experience the new workshop space first-hand prior to the open house by enrolling in the first workshop beginning Oct. 7. During the workshop, prospective teleworkers can expect to gain valuable computer and digital literacy skills that will boost their success in landing a work-from-home job that can be performed from a home office over the internet. Teleworks USA Outreach Manager Amy Nunn will be on hand during the workshop to assist participants in building their résumés and to practice interviewing skills.

“We’re excited for people to come and see this new space and learn more about how Teleworks USA can connect people with legitimate jobs they can do from the comfort of their own home,” said Betty Hays, Teleworks USA Operations Manager. “Since 2015 we’ve helped connect nearly 2,500 people with new jobs, so we know this workshop model works and we’re ready to bring this service to Clay County.”

The Teleworks USA Digital Career Center is located in room 107 within the EKU Manchester Campus, located at 50 University Drive. For more information, or to enroll for the upcoming workshop, contact Amy Nunn at 606-438-1533 or via email at anunn@teleworksusa.com
