OCALA, Fla. (Oct. 27, 2016) – The new Talent Center at the College of Central Florida will hold a “Refocus and Reconnect” workshop for professionals designed to help them develop and deploy strategic career campaigns.

Open to highly-skilled technical and professional-level career seekers, the workshop takes place Monday, Nov. 7 and Tuesday, Nov. 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Talent Center, located in Suite 101 of the Enterprise Center (building 42) at CF’s Ocala campus, 3003 SW College Road.
