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. Workshops and individual sessions with students are conducted to help write effective resumes, enhance and practice interviewing skills, and implement job search strategies.
Employers are welcomed 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.
OptimalResume is a computerized service for students to develop their resume, create a personal web site, host “portfolio” content, and practice interviewing with online modules. It is also free and available through any web browser at trcc.optimalresume.com.
