From the President

Welcome to CareerFocus!

… and back to Wake Tech campuses! Faculty and staff have been busy preparing for your return this fall. We’re all looking forward to having students back on campus and seeing classes, workshops, student activities, sports, and special events resume.

The past year has indeed been challenging, but we’ve all worked together to find solutions and maintain our standard of excellence.

We want to help you continue to work toward your goals, whether you’re looking to earn your degree, return to the job market, or make up for time lost to the pandemic. Take a look at all that’s available here and find what’s right for you. Remember, a great “comeback” starts at Wake Tech!!
