Columbia Southern Education Group and Partners Hire, Train, Employ Transitioning Military

On Thursday, July 20, 2017, Columbia Southern Education Group (CSEG), Columbia Southern University’s parent company, and the Soldier for Life Transition Assistance Program commemorated the grand opening of the Career Resource Center (CRC) in Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

The CRC provides transitioning service members, veterans and family members with a bridge from the military to civilian employment and careers. The opening of the CRC on the Fort Bragg Army base established an official employment, skills-focused, facility that provides military job seekers with employer specific education, training, certifications and information required to hire, train and employ job seekers.

“No one could have imagined in September 2014 what the Fort Bragg Career Resource Center would become,” said Robert Mayes, president and CEO of Columbia Southern Education Group. “CSEG’s primary goal was to give back to the military community in some small way to change lives. Today, you will discover that the Career Resource Center does indeed change lives, but on a much grander scale than imagined.”

Organizations participating in the CRC training programs include:

  • Adaptive Construction Solutions
  • Charter Communications
  • CVS Health
  • North Carolina Agriculture Institute
  • North Carolina Truck Driving School
  • Onward to Opportunity
  • Veteran Assembled Electronics

This is an exciting time for CSEG. Through the new Career Resource Center, CSEG is afforded another opportunity to provide exceptional service to students and deliver affordable quality educational offerings.
