Most of TRCC students work full- or part-time while enrolled at the College. Many look to enhance the significance of that work in relation to long-term career goals they establish while a student. The Counseling Center works with students to increase understanding and effectiveness in looking for and obtaining employment.
An online student employment service lists full- and part-time jobs and internships at www.collegecentral.com/threerivers with opportunities at local and state businesses and organizations. Students have unlimited free access to this service and are able to develop their resume, create a personal web site, host “portfolio” content, and view a listing of upcoming career-related events. Workshops and individual sessions with students are conducted to help write effective resumes, enhance and practice interviewing skills, implement job search strategies, decide on a college major, and begin the career planning and exploration process.
Employers may post job announcements at www.collegecentral.com/threerivers and are welcomed to schedule visits on campus to recruit students and attend the Career Expo that brings. Ongoing collaboration with faculty across disciplines supports development of specific skills or resources for students in various academic programs. Alumni are engaged in helping build networks for students who seek career information or employment in a variety of fields.
