Below are some of the services that Career Services offers to the campus community.  Most services can be offered either remotely or in-person.

Classroom Presentations and Workshops

Career Services staff is available to facilitate presentations such as job search and career exploration topics or how to use CCM-sponsored career tools.  Let us know how we can help.  Here are some suggestions:

  • Resume builder and interviewing skills using Skills First

Use the integrated O*NET database to target resumes for specific opportunities.  Over 900 occupation-specific interviews as well as nearly 2 dozen interview types (such as behavioral or the ‘elevator pitch’). There are also 100 hours of professional video coaching.  Custom interviews can be created for your classes by recording specific questions and/or accessing the keyword searchable 12,240+ database of Skills First questions.

    Guest speakers and panels throughout Career Week offers a unique opportunity for students to learn directly from industry professionals.  We can help coordinate and advertise a speaker or panel as part of or external to classroom time.

Faculty Internship Advisor Information

Student Placement/Registration Process

    1. Through consultation with the student, the Faculty Internship Advisor (Advisor) identifies (1) that the student is ready for an internship and (2) that the student is aware of how the internship may be incorporated into their curriculum. The Advisor then refers the approved student to Career Services to initiate the placement process.
    2. Once a placement is identified, the Advisor reviews it for suitability to the student, and alignment to the curriculum and internship guidelines.
    3. The Advisor signs the completed Learning Goals/Job Description document and forwards to Career Services so registration can be opened.
    4. The Advisor connects with the internship work supervisor to discuss learning objectives and an evaluation plan.

The Internship Advisor Role

The faculty internship advisor…

    • is the instructor of the internship course,
    • recommends the internship program to qualified students and refers them to Career Services,
    • works with the student and employer supervisor to develop and/or approve internship objectives,
    • communicates approval of the student’s learning goals and job description to Career Services,
    • monitors student progress throughout the internship semester by way of one or more on-site visits and/or periodic telephone contact with the employer supervisor,
    • may require an additional project or report concurrent to the internship,
    • connects with the intern(s) as a group and/or is available for individual appointments,
    • evaluates the accomplishment of the intern’s learning goals at the conclusion of the experience in consultation with the employer supervisor and assigns a grade accordingly.

JobConnect Job Listing & Notification System

Job Connect is CCM’s job listing system for employers to post job opportunities for CCM students and graduates, as well as Workforce Development and Women’s Center clients.  CCM faculty and staff may also have access to this system:

 

Faculty/Staff Admin Link.
Please email rgrant@ccm.edu for initial account setup.

 

Create a JobAgent and get notified about jobs of interest to your students.

Once you log in as an admin, to set a Job Agent:

  • Click Job Postings from the top menu
  • Choose Advanced Search
  • Under Search Criteria, Choose Job Category, then select the categories you want to be notified about.  There are two engineering categories.  I separated out drafting since we do get a number  of those jobs.
  • Click Add at the top right corner of the category list
  • Click Save Search at the top right of the screen
    • Click Save as New Search
    • Name the search
    • Check the Save as Agent box, then Save again
    • Change the notification frequency if desired

The first time an agent is set, the system sends out an email to confirm that the email is correct.

When you receive Agent results, they will come from ‘County College of Morris,’ and the subject will read ‘there are new jobs that match your search.’  Click on the link in that email; you will still need to log in, but it will take you right to the Agent results.
