Train to Work at HCL

The Center and Wake Tech are working together to recruit candidates for HCL America, a global technology company located in Cary. Individuals with customer service experience are ideal candidates, even without an IT background.

Job seekers can take an HCL assessment at the Center to see if they are suited to enter training. The training takes place at Wake Tech’s campus in Cary where candidates earn a telecommunications certificate. After training, students have the opportunity to interview with HCL and the certificate also makes the individual a more competitive candidate for other jobs and employers.

Those interested in this opportunity must email their resume to jennifer.j.edwards@rescare.com who will schedule a time to take the assessment. This is a great way start a career in the growing field of IT!
