ECC Partners with Jobs Network
Edgecombe Community College has partnered with College Central Network® to help students and employers connect.
College Central Network (CCN) is a platform that provides technology to connect employers with qualified candidates. The CCN app features opportunities for internships, part-time jobs, and full-time employment, making the job search experience easier for students.
“The process is simple for students,” explains Camille Richardson, counselor in the Office of Student Services at ECC. “Students register for free at collegecentral.com/edgecombe. After completing their profile, students receive a confirmation and can then install and use the College Central Network app to interact with career services and search for and apply to jobs.”
The app also provides a quick way to sign up for career fairs, workshops, and résumé reviews, and to schedule appointments with Student Services staff. In addition, students have access to Job Agent, which automatically matches jobs to an individual student’s profile.
The service is available to ECC alumni as well. Through College Central Network, ECC students and alumni can apply for part- or full-time jobs and internships; schedule appointments with the College’s career counselor; sign up for workshops, job fairs, and events; and access extensive job search and career advice resources, such as College Central Network podcasts.
Over six million jobs have been posted on College Central Network, and ECC students and alumni have access to all of these postings. In addition, more than one million employers have registered and actively recruit students through the network.
Michael Jordan, vice president of student services, says, “We are excited to partner with College Central Network to offer this service to our students and alumni. In the past, we’ve posted local jobs when employers contact us, but this platform will enable us to provide so much more.”
The partnership with College Central Network includes membership in CCN’s North Carolina Community and Technical Jobs Consortium.
“By choosing CCN’s Career Services Central® to power our own career development services, we’re also joining 28 other North Carolina community and technical colleges already using Career Services Central,” Jordan explains.
“Collectively, we’re working to grow and retain North Carolina’s emerging workforce by providing unmatched access to employers and their jobs.”
Edgecombe Community College invites employers to register at collegecentral.com/edgecombe and post job opportunities and internships for free. “Employers will have access to our students who opt into the program. They also will have access to any other students in the network,” Jordan adds.
