Workforce & Business Development

Workforce Development

Career Preparation

Career Services integrates finding employment for students with employers' needs. By interviewing and assessing both graduates and employers, candidates are prepared to complete successful interviews and attain employment upon graduation. As an employer we post job opportunities on our website and in the Career Centers on campuses.

Industry Partners & Employers

Workforce Development (WFD) works collaboratively with Instruction/Academic Affairs to host program specific annual and semi-annual Advisory Board meetings for our Trade and Technical Training programs. Board members are actively engaged industry partners with a desire for growth within their industry. Often these board members become the first employers of our graduates. 

Job Fairs

Career Services and WDF host several Job Fairs every year.  We want to meet your hiring needs by connecting you with our graduates.  Please let us know if you would like to participate in an upcoming Job Fair by emailing

Students and Graduates

We strive to connect both employer needs and student skill set for a successful job opportunity. Students and graduates are welcome in Career Centers on campus to receive the assistance needed in their job search.  Job postings, internet searches, mock interviews and one-on-one assistance are included in the support provided. 

Want to make an appointment with staff to begin building your targeted job search? Stop by any of the Career Centers for assistance.
