Kalamazoo Valley Community College's career services is now part of a national job board that has more than a half million jobs – from tens of thousands of unique sources, comprising all of the major job boards as well as newspapers, associations, and company web sites. It also has postings specific to Kalamazoo Valley.
Kalamazoo Valley’s Career and Student Employment Services has gone live with College Central Network
(CCN), an online career management system that will provide job postings to students, alumni, employers, and community members.
CCN is the leading provider for more than 600 college and university campus career and employment centers in 43 states across the country.
In addition to Kalamazoo Valley
job postings, the new website will include a job postings and employer resume search function, a resume builder, career advice articles, podcasts and videos, the ability to search college's secure jobs database, CCN's Jobs Central national job board, and a career document library.
"Employers will be posting their available jobs on CCN and also searching for suitable job applicants," says Diane Finch, Director of Student Career and Employment Services. And she says she thinks the new website will be a huge asset to the community’s job seekers.
CCN has tools and templates that make it easy to build industry specific resumes and portfolios. It also has a library of articles, videos, podcasts full of tips and advice to help those looking prepare for internships or job hunts.
Diane Finch, Director of Student Career and Employment Services says she thinks the new website will be a huge asset to the community’s job seekers.
"Our current employment site only offers job postings," says Finch. "College Central will provide lots more."
