Career Center

Back to SBCC


Chris Phillips 

 As the Career Center Director, Chris enjoys such a wide variety of responsibilities that his job never becomes routine.

  Chris coordinates all the career development and work experience classes on campus and teaches every semester. His favorite part of the job is working one-on-one with SBCC students exploring their education and career goals. Much of his time away from the Career Center is spent with his two children and playing tennis.

  His advice to students is to keep an open mind about their future and to seek out practical experience through internships, volunteering and part-time jobs.
