Career Services: Employment Preparation, Job Search, Employer Resources
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.
STUDENTS: 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 to host “portfolio” content, download free career/job search advice documents, listen to free audio podcasts via ITunes, read Career Corner articles written by professional authors, 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.
