Career Services

Your career is waiting for you.

The Office of Career and Community Connection provides career exploration, workshops, events, and on-campus employer visits to support students as they create their career path. We also help employers make campus connections and build relationships toward meeting their recruitment needs and hiring goals.

Employers, are you looking for a tool to connect with our students? Students, are you looking for a job? Handshake is an electronic software that allows for students to connect with industry employers locally and nationally. Employers can post criteria and required skills for their open positions, review students resumes, and browse the PCC population.
