A Press Release From Mitchell College

Mitchell College’s recent career preparation program, Target Your Talent, was produced in part with a support grant of $3,500 from Chelsea Groton Foundation, demonstrating the institutions’ shared vision to keep southeastern Connecticut’s workforce vibrant and thriving.

Chelsea Groton Bank President and CEO Michael Rauh describes the bank’s emphasis on community philanthropy, “Shared trust, purpose and respect—our mutual philosophy—means we do everything in our power to advance the quality of life of folks who live in our neighborhood.”

Target Your Talent was produced by Mitchell College’s Career Services Director, Amanda Ljubicic. Mitchell College’s program dovetails with Chelsea Groton’s priorities, Ljubicic says, because “Target Your Talent aims to keep the southeastern Connecticut workforce robust and competitive. Chelsea Groton Bank’s support is vital to prepare the next generation of local professionals to excel in the work world.”

Human Resource representatives, managers and college faculty and career counselors alike recognize that today’s students have less work experience than students of generations past, many lack the social and emotional skills to communicate in a professional environment and often they over- or under-estimate their abilities, experience and education in relation to a particular industry or field. Target Your Talent introduces local students to a professional environment in which they learn about timely and relevant career topics, interact with local employers and gain confidence and focus in their career goals.

More than 100 students from Mitchell College and area high schools participated in the conference held November 13 at the Mystic Marriott.
