CN Career Services office in Muskogee opens
MUSKOGEE – The Cherokee Nation’s newest Career Services office is now open in Muskogee to help tribal citizens with employment training opportunities and job assistance.
Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr., Tribal Councilor Dr. Mike Dobbins and Career Services Executive Director Diane Kelley recently joined Career Services staff and city leaders for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new office.
“Our goal is to have tribal services accessible for our citizens no matter where they live,” Hoskin said. “I hope this permanent location will see our hard-working staff serving more of our citizens in the Muskogee area who reach out for help.”
CN officials said the facility is at 1305 S. Country Club Road and gives the department a permanent location for serving tribal citizens in the Muskogee area.
“I couldn’t be happier for the employees who have been working with what little office space they had available, but who now have a permanent location to help more citizens,” Dobbins said. “This expansion will increase all the services the department has to offer because now there is a main location for our Muskogee employees to work from.”
The Muskogee office provides space for assisting Cherokees with economic development, employment programs including youth and adult programs, vocational training, job corps recruitment and placement and others, officials said.
“We will be able to service clients at full capacity now that we have a proper space for our staff in Muskogee,” Kelley said. “Having multiple locations in surrounding counties makes Career Services more accessible to citizens who aren’t able to travel to Tahlequah for service.”
The Muskogee office can be reached by calling 918-682-2077 or faxing 918-682-2497.
